Up for auction are 26 pieces of sterling flatware which includes forks, spoons-demitasse, serving, souvenir, tea, and a Whiting serving spoon with holes in bowl in the Bead pattern which began production in 1885. One of the teaspoons is Towle and has "925/1000" on the back of the bowl which is in five sections. The pattern name for this piece is Colonial which began production in 1895. Each piece has the word sterling on the handle. The souvenir spoons have " Atlantic City ", on one bowl and World's Fair City" on the other bowl. Manufacturers include Alvin , Durgin, Gorham, Lunt, Simpson Hall & Miller, Towle, and Whiting. Also included in the auction is a sterling silver tea strainer. I have included a picture of the hallmark. Postal scale weight including plastic bag was 1#, 6.2 oz. Weight of silver is 1#, 6 oz. or 22 ounces. This is not troy weight. These are pieces of silver I bought at an auction. I am not an expert on silver and will do my best to describe any flaws. They have the typical flaws that I would expect to see with use and time. I have multiple pieces of silver up for auction at this time. If you are the winner of more than one of my auctions, I will combine shipping costs. If you have any questions, please email me. Good Luck and thank you for looking!
