Need Maker & Pattern help for vintage sterling flatware set

Postby whoknew62 » Wed Mar 13, 2019 4:48 pm

Hello all, Though I have found this site super helpful through the years, I just officially signed up.

(admin edit - see Posting Requirements )

I have searched high and low- trying to identify a vintage set for 6 of Sterling silver flatware. I do not recognize the maker mark. (Possibly a "G" for gorham?) nor the pattern 3 roses at top and mid sections, with leaves, straight handles. If I can figure out how to add 2 photos, maybe someone could possibly help. I will try to drag and drop here. Thanks in advance. Jerry, Well?, No luck draging dropping. Will look around the site some more. TY Again

Hi Dognose, Thank you for the reply and information. When signing up, I clicked on "read rules, or something to that affect'. But only got a blank page.
Been reading posting info , and trying to learn the tiny pic hosting site. I am hoping I got it right. I will just give it a shot. Will post 2 photos from tiny pics. One the maker mark on back of the sterling spoon. The mark is rather tiny, And a pic of the full teaspoon with the pattern. They should be clear, (I hope). Pattern has 3 flowers and a leave top of spoon, and same pattern mid way down the spoon. The sterling set is Vintage/antique.
OK, let me give this a try.

Welcome, Jerry. Good job on posting pics...

The pattern is International Silver's 'Splendor', by their prolific designer Alfred G. Kintz, introduced in 1939.

Hi Cheryl,
Thank you Soooo much for both the welcome, and the information. Gee , This may have been one of the longest sterling ID searches I'd done since I got involved in vintage sterling collecting/ hobby, etc. Finally joined here yesterday. May be ya can teach an ole dog new tricks?? I thought, after trying tinypics site, No Way I'll get this right.lol
Thank you so much again.
