Seem to be only able to find my pattern books for Sterling and none for plate! Modern Art pieces carry Patent grant date of Sept. 20 1904, supposedly designed by Ernest Meyers. From a Big-G machine search, I get USD #'s 37,140 through 37,146 with Charles A. Bennett Assignor to Reed & Barton Corporation...filed July 28, granted Sept. 20...none looking like Mod. Art. details. For Ernest Meyers, he is scattered over the decade but some items in 1902 seem closer to the Nouveau style here. Anyone got the actual patent number and dates on this one? Or any early advert. links? The pattern is in the 1908 catalogue pages.
