Question
antique "victorian"  silver plated seafood fork with the only marks on the back   Rupp & Andrews
can find out nothing very nice great detail  can you help

Answer
Hi, Linda.

I have not seen this mark before. The only reference I could find was here: http://books.google.com/books?id=aBo1AQAAMAAJ&pg=PA236&lpg=PA236&dq=rupp+andrews .

At one time, it was common for retail establishments to have their name placed on the back of pieces. Maybe that's what we have here. However, the pieces usually carried the mark of the actual manufacturer as well.

I'm sorry I could offer little help.

Best wishes,

Jim
