Mark on Sterling set
Mark on Sterling set  

Carving set
Carving set  
There are the letters MS (flowing script) directly above the word Sterling on a vintage carving set I have.  Do you know anything about this?  I am stumped.  I looked through a lot of marks but cannot locate. Thank you for your help!

Answer
Hi, Teresa.

I don't recognize the marks. I could not find them in my reference books either.

Consider posting your question and pictures on the forum at www.925-1000.com. A number of experts participate and maybe one will recognize them.

Best wishes,

Jim
