Question
reed & barton 3292
reed & barton 3292  
hi there,
on the bottom of my Reed & Barton silverplate "bride's bowl" is 3292. I know it corresponds with a date, but not sure what date it is or where to find that info.

Thanks

Answer
Hi, Kari.

I don't relate numbers like this to dates. In my experience, such numbers represent a pattern or a specific piece within a pattern. I'm not familiar with this specific number but you can see lots of similar pieces and their numbers at www.replacements.com. You might send a picture of the bottom and the entire bowl to the pattern matching service at www.replacements.com to see if they can help.

Sorry I could not help.

Best wishes,

Jim
