I am wondering if I could possibly get some help with dating this piece? I had been told that it was probably 1930 due to the C.S. 30 on the bottom, but I have found new information that the number in the little box on the left is the correct dating digits to go by. In this case, 15 which would mean 1915. What do you think? 

Comment by Donna Sullivan on May 22, 2015 at 7:53pm

Thank you Vicki, I appreciate the speedy response and your help!

That is very interesting and makes perfect sense! Thanks again.

Hi Donna, I think your pretty sugar bowl would not have a formal Pattern name. Rather it would be a "special order" made by Int' Silver for the "Casperilla" - in Boca Grande FL. 

Most silver companies made "industrial" or "Custom" versions of their items for places like Hotels, restaurants and even Golf Courses! I should think yours would be one of those. 

It's a nice one too! 

Comment by Donna Sullivan on May 22, 2015 at 7:32pm

I would like to know the pattern name on this International Silver sugar bowl. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

everywhere, big boxes, hardware maybe grocery store also...

Comment by vicki hufstetler on May 22, 2015 at 7:11pm

Well Thank you Charm, I think I need to invest in some Weimann's polish then? I really like the idea of a seal to keep tarnish out!

Do you have a link? or just visit a hardware store? Thanks again!

Comment by House of Charm Antiques Southinc on May 22, 2015 at 6:08pm

Other polishes from least to more abrasive: Weimann's; Wrights; Howard(I like as it has an ammonia-like chemical that really hits the black tarnish. Weimann's has an anti-oxidative seal also.

Hi Jennifer, NEVER use tarnex. It's very dangerous for you, and it will kill your silver to! Both Sterling and plate!

Instead, get yourself some good silver or all metals polish. I like Maas or Chromex myself. Most good hardware stores will carry one or the other.

Wear gloves, and have a stack of rags at the ready. Put the polish on a small section at a time, and just wipe off the tarnish using the rags. It's totally safe and not very difficult. It may take more than one try to remove all tarnish, if it's heavy.

Silver is ALWAYS better clean! It is the only metal that does not require patina for age. So do clean your pieces, just DON'T use Tarnex please! :)

The best way to keep your silver clean is by using it on a regular basis, if your going to display it. Or  by keeping it away from oxygen, if your putting it away. There are Silver keepers fabric covers available, if your wanting to store your pieces. They look sorta like velvet and you just place your items in the cover, and put it away until you wish to use it.

Most silver flatware boxes have a lining in this material, and many silver jewelry pieces come with a bag/case with this material also. Some folks use plastic wrap over there pieces when storing it to. It's not as effective, but its better than nothing! Hope this helps you!

I think the petina on the pairpoint looks pretty but the flower frog looks bad.  That's just my opinion.  Also, why do they look so different?

Comment by Jennifer Goodroe on May 22, 2015 at 3:39pm

I have a quadruple plate pairpoint creamer? and bowl.  They are very tarnished, they look like pewter.  Also, I have a1930’s Avon Wm Rogers Silver Plated Flower Frog Bowl, very tarnished but looks more like copper.  My question is:  Should I clean them up with tarnex or baking soda or are they more valuable with the petinas.
