Help with Silvermark on a platter

Postby kenimpzoom » Wed Sep 22, 2021 11:18 pm

Please help ID this mark. I have looked as much as I can on the net, but still am a little bit stumped.

This is a large platter. Quite heavy.

It kinda looks like a snake on the anchor, which is unusual. And that letter at the end is strange, I think it is a G????

Hi,

The maker was F. & M. Weintraub of New York.

Gorham won a restraining order against F. & M. Weintraub in 1909 preventing them using marks that were considered too similar to those used by Gorham:

Thus, your tray can be dated to around the 1908-9 period.

Oh wow. thanks so much for clearing up this mystery.

An early 1900 ripoff, that is some interesting provenance.

Thanks again, Ken

Interesting...there has been at least one prior query involving only a "G"...perhaps another variation on this duplicitous connivance?

Hi
I have just noticed this post,interesting for me that this G mark is also close (not the same) as the Belgium import mark gothic G.
Not sure what others think?

regards Guido.
