The already used matches if you were in a building and did not want to throw them on the floor; upsetting the host and hostess?

Hi Bobby- The T probably stands for Taxco, the next letter of O or D is the first initial of the last name and the 40 represents the smith being the 40th registered with that initial. All of this can be better explained here: http://www.925-1000.com/mexican_marks.html" onclick="window.open(this.href...

Hello Pit-

The 23 is probably the makers register mark, and made between 1955 and the early 1970's as shown here:

Hi Phillone-

I do not know if you have looked at the silver standards page here on this site, perhaps this will help narrow it down a little.

Handsome piece, I have never seen this shape before where it is squared off past the stem as this one is, might anyone be able to tell me what this design is called? (For some reason it reminds me of a snow shovel, so I guess I do not know why I like it since I hate shoveling snow.)

Hi Peggy- If I mislead you towards France, I appologize. As Pat stated your mark is of the Kent Silversmiths company, manufacturers and importers founded in New York; now in Taunton, Ma. Your set was imported by them to the United States from India. Here is a link about the Fleur-De-Lis that explain...

Hi Peggy-

I can't help with the maker, but the marks are not writing. They are fleur-de-lis symbols (iris' or lilly's), mainly of the French monarchy. You can google it and find all kinds of answers.

Second guess... no other country used the Britania standard of .9584 so it could not have been an import and would have been made in Britain.

Hi Trev- I really do not know... the import mark seems correct as well as the date mark of 1905. The .9584 is correct until the 1970's when the decimal and the 4 were dropped, so the only thing I can think of would be a problem with the sponser mark? Byron- But then again, even when you gave me the ...
