Eye Inside a Star Maker's Mark ID help

Postby jerseygirl153 » Thu Feb 19, 2015 7:38 pm

Hello,

Can anyone identify the silversmith of this folding picture frame? I think this is late 1800's America (probably NY or NJ). But it could be British. Thanks for any assistance.

Am curious also about the "bubbling" in the finish here.

Wow that was quick! Thank you very much. Glad to find this forum, lots of interesting reading here!

Do you think the "19" indicates grams of silver?

Hi,

Silver photo frame, the number 19 I believe not to be a weight indication be more a internal reference number used by the silversmith/house.
