I think those are "faux" hallmarks Lillian -  also, I think you are missing lids for your server. It's an older one - maybe 1920's or 30's but it's probably US made silverplate. You can double check using the links for identifying silver markings at the top of the group page.

Can anyone identify the mark on this piece of plate or tell me what it signifies?

Here is the item - a double sided relish tray.

These were in a box in the attic with a bunch of silverpated items. The bottom mark says they are weighted, so can't get an accurate weight of just the silver.  They are 4" tall and have a 3" diameter base. The company is Duchin. Are they still in business? About how old could these candle holders be?

And from your resident amateur, Jeff, you can almost always tell silver from plate n that silver is 'warm & oily/slippery' to touch and plate is cold & dry as though just washed squeaky clean. Also, look a t places of wear fro other metal colors coming through, copper, base metal etc.

Hi Ellen, Welcome to Antique and Collectible silver!  Your tray is probably silverplated. Unless it is marked with either "Sterling", ".925" or any other hallmark, it's plate.  You say your shakers are marked - those would be sterling silver. There is a big difference in value. But designer is also important. I'm not familiar with Eugen Ferner. So maybe a goggle search would be helpful to learn more about this designer.

Trying to find out if a tray is sterling or not.  Have a set of Eugen Ferner S & P shakers which say sterling on the bottom.  Also have a Eugen Ferner round silver tray with a glass insert and both items have 1968 imprinted on bottom.  They were brought over from germany by the same person so I am assuming they would both be sterling but not positive. I have searched for a while now with no luck and was hoping someone might be able to assist.

Hi Veronica - Welcome to our silver group - happy to have you, and glad you met our resident expert - Jeffrey!

Be sure to check out his pages on care and cleaning of silver too - they are fantastic! :)

You can find all of my recommended products and where they can be purchased here.

Comment by Veronica L Pruitt on February 26, 2012 at 11:58am

Okay...I'll look for that online.  You recommended I use Twinkle to clean my items...I couldn't find it it any store...damn stuff has been around forever!  Had to get it from Amazon. 

Thanks for your help, Veronica
