Hi Lillian, I'm not sure those are hallmarks. I think they are emblems of a company. Go to: http://www.925-1000.com/silverplate__menu.html

Be sure you are one the "silver plate" page. If they are well known and or USA, they should be pretty easy to spot. Good Luck!

I assume the bucket the kitty is sitting in is silver-plated, but it has some hallmarks I'd like identified.

Kudos, Jeff! Just as I'm about run out of polish, too. Will you offer it for resale?

Comment by Jeffrey Herman on September 17, 2016 at 12:21am

Hello everyone! Great news – Herman's Simply Clean Collectors Silver Polish is now available...

The basket I saw at the flea market is identical to the one pictured below, made by Rogers Bros, although the mark on mine consists of an applied plaque and states "triple plate" rather than the quadruple plate of the example below. I've decided not to buy it even at $30, as I agree that typical replating is not really satisfactory (and expensive). It's too bad there isn't another option for a piece like this which has lost almost all of its silver. It is left looking like dull pewter at best.

Jeremy there is a bride's basket online for $125. USD. Only the handle looks like yours. It was probably made by the same company which was given as Meriden Silver Plating Co.

I agree. You'll ruin its intrinsic value if you replate it. Leave it alone if you plan to sell it.

Comment by Liz Bryman on June 26, 2016 at 6:48am

Originally the Bride's Basket was intended as a receptacle for the money gifts to the bridal couple  in envelopes or satchels deposited in it at the wedding reception. The bride herself did not carry it around by the handle but a bride's maid may have. As it filled up the gifts were quietly removed and safeguarded by trusted family members, mother, grandmother or an aunt of the bride. The fact that it is often not flat in the middle confirms that it was meant to hold bulky satchels with coins or jewelry. The basket itself was often a gift to the bridal couple and the bride's bouquet deposited on it after the ceremony if not used for gifts. Later it was exclusively used for flowers or small sweets at the reception and later in the home.

I don't know, but they also seem to be called cake baskets. They really can't hold a cake, as the bottoms are not flat. Maybe for cookies or muffins?

Comment by Liz Bryman on June 25, 2016 at 7:17pm

Jeremy, do you know what the "bride's basket" was used for? Take a wild guess!
