Re: Fountain Pen Canadian?

Might make sense...I tried to chase Jaques and got a Charles coming up...I believe NY in watches. Orfevres led nowhere, so I could not reconcile what the "O." might be.

Re: Who is the Vienna Silversmith

Military badge sites indicate Rudolf Souval lived 1819-1899. The firm survived under new ownership and continued on in the field of militaria. Last reports circa 2008 (see photo of known shop) engaged in corporate pins type wares. [Photos posted openly on net...delete if in any violations.] https://...

Re: Oneida Hotel: A Las Vegas Puzzler

In searching for evidence, I discovered the word fabulous was used to describe things like Hoover Dam in tourist media but was not clearly associated with the Flamingo Hotel until the early '50's period. So it made be that written historical information is more like urban mythology...you just can't ...

Encircled "W" w/extensions

On salad servers of wood with sterling handles. Marked twice, front & back, on each piece. Mark is similar to Frank M. Whiting only this one has all three extensions stemming from a single branch. Stubby looking like a weed succulent attacking your garden. I don't believe it's an "OW",...

Re: Reed & Barton Cocktail Pitcher: date?

The link seems to be down, but R&B used only picto-symbols to represent years, only beginning in 1928. The "18" is where you would normally see an item/inventory/stock/catalog/pattern number on the wares.

Re: Reed & Barton Cocktail Pitcher: date?

Interesting...Joe Yule played the Jiggs role in movies. The Jiggs comic strip character dates back to c.1912, but the pitcher could be much later...once designed, they could produce something as long as the tooling held out. R&B maintained quality work all along.

Knife Andersen Norway 1888-1914 Range

Not finding anything useful on much-older, unhyphenated David Anderson flatwares on the net. We have the 1888-1925 hammer mark, limited by a 1914 inscribed dating on the handle reverse. Left of maker mark is a "15" which should correspond to a gram measure for silverplating process. But wa...

Re: Crescent brooch - ? missing agate - ??.H.L - STG SIL

A footnote from Victorian Jewelry by Margaret Flower (1951): Scotch pebbles were usually pieces of agate, quarried near Perth. They were frequently cut and mounted at Oberstein in Germany.
