SAL SAGEV by Victor Silver

Postby Traintime » Sun Jul 25, 2021 1:25 pm

Topmarked for Nevada's historically significant Hotel SAL SAGEV (Las Vegas backwards), this unidentified pattern by International Silver Company's subsidiary Victor Silver Co., may have been ordered to accompany the known china pattern with an "Indian Head" logo. But this is not definite as the hotel had a ground floor restaurant, a cafe, and a bar as well as a short-lived casino operation (1931-34). So far, this design does not seem to cross-over to the Dohrco patterns of Dohrmann Hotel Supply, but we can't rule out this possible sourcing. No other silverplate from this user has been uncovered in available records yet. TIA

Apparently being referred to as pattern INS182. Known users include Hotel Raddison, a Hotel Phillips, the Wheel Cafe Cincinnati (1901-81), and an unknown "Canton" which may be a restaurant.

A listing of two knives and one fork backstamped for THE INTERSTATE CO. appear to match this pattern. Images are blurred but seem to read VICTOR S. CO. A1+ Overlay followed by [IS]. The Interstate Co. evolved from the VanNoy-Interstate merged firm which operated railroad dining locations (eating houses, restaurants, inns) much like The Fred Harvey Company.
