F Sanborns Silversmith Mark Question

Postby silverly » Wed Jun 19, 2019 12:32 am

I hoping someone may know about the markings on Sanborns silver. I presume the the LF in a circle mark on this piece belongs to the silversmith who made it. Can anyone confirm this and identify the maker. Thank you in advance.

The only specific Sanborns mark I am familiar with is Fred Davis's F.D. mark. He managed Sanborns for a time, starting I believe in 1933. I don't think I have seen the lf mark before.

Thank you. I've seen quite a variety of Sanborn marks, but very little with added silversmiths. Maybe someday someone will reoognize this one.
