Hello. This Ladle has the same mark twice, what seems to me to be SW in an oval. I did my due diligence as far as research goes, but there were a few possibilities. Could anyone tell me who this mark belonged to. Thank You.
It appears to be one of the marks given to Samuel Williamson of Philadelphia (working circa 1794-1813), and the style and period of the piece would fit. Catherine Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" has a picture of the mark.
