8” x 11” Appears to be sterling, but is unmarked. Has matching large sugar bowl (covered, unhinged) and large creamer.


My mother was an avid collector and likely bought it from a Northern Va dealer (Kitty’s Antiques) in the mid-1970’s.

I’ve been over all three pieces with a loop and can’t identify anything. Some evidence of repairs. L.W with a raised period after the W. That seems to have been added later.

I think these must be silver-plated then, and will value as such.
