Hallmark ID - Sterling Figural Necklaces Conjoined ETA mark?

Postby percypie » Fri Aug 07, 2009 1:19 pm

Hello!

This is my first post here. I have been searching for a few years for information on these two pieces. I bought these at an estate appx 4 years ago. The person who owned them moved to AZ in the late 80s/early 90s and went overboard buying "southwest" style items. I assume that these pieces are from this time period. One is a moose and one is a duck. Both are pendant style necklaces and can also be used as small sterling 'statues.' They can be removed from their chains and are able to stand on their own for display. Really cool. They are very heavy, very dimensional, very well made, and are of super-high quality. The moose is appx 2 1/4" tall. Both pieces have the same mark. The image is of the mark on the moose. It is (c) STERLING with what looks like conjoined ETA or possibly EAT. I have looked on the web, on this website, and in American Jewelry Manufacturers and can't find anything. Anyone recognize this mark? Thanks in advance for any information you might have! :-)

Best wishes, Kristin

I believe your pieces were made by Elizabeth Allen, whose studio is in Camden, Maine:

The bird is actually a loon, not a duck.

They're very nice! Perhaps a bit ungainly to wear around one's neck, but great just the same.
