    #7 Thinking a baby spoon? Monogram an "F"? Maker? d5.jpg d3.jpg d4.jpg

    Thanks for all the help with these! :) What is left at the house is a very large set of sterling (maybe 80-100 pcs of a matching what looks to be an old set) plus a few simple sterling bowls.

    Hm. No love on any of the ideas I had for the last one. Can figure why this is so hard to find this morning. :(

    I would lean towards Mauser, trying to read about who absorbed whom, and who took over what??? But just a theory. :)

    The mystery is what to do with the geometric symbol.

    Aquitaine Is What It IS!!!

    I remember seeing that 'half horse/unicorn' on an item I had posted here some time ago, and y'all helped identify it as Mauser!!! It was on a Sterling cane (as in walking) top...... image of the mark below that is on my item.....
    hope it helps!!

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    The monogram on the second one could be an F ... Another possibility is J.

    Aqui, I think it has been determined to be Mauser...

    The question now is "what is that geometric mark"?
    img0 (307).jpg
    It's generally not found on Mauser silver, and while it resembles some other companies' marks, it isn't quite one of those, either.

    My question exactly. It does sort of resemble the Graff, Washbourne and Dunn's mark, but looking at their work doesn't get us anywhere and Rainwater does not mention any relationship between Mauser and GWD. She does mention the merger between Mauser and Hayes & McFarland and Roger Williams Silver to form Mount Vernon in 1903 (which firm was purchased by Gorham in 1913. She also mentions that Mauser sold some flatware patterns to Wendell Mfg in the late 1890's (but I think this design does not look like an 1890's pattern to me.)

    Maybe @Lucille.b can give it a polish to see is anything else in that shape?

    You all are amazing. Thank you for the great research skills shared. :)

    Just gave that little symbol a polish, nothing inside the shape, looked with a high power magnifying glass.

    Maybe part of the Patd ??

    Thank you!
