Silver and Flatware/Identifying Sterling Flatware Bailey Banks & Biddle


Hi -

I have some sterling silver flatware with Bailey Banks & Biddle engraved on it, but I cannot determine who the manufacturer is.

I would love your assistance as I need to purchase some pieces that are missing.

Since I don't know how to add a photo here I have included below a link to an ebay Buy It Now of iced teaspoons in the same pattern:

Many thanks!

Countless blessings,


The symbol on the back represents Dominick & Haff. It was once common for retailers like BB&B to have some other company actually manufacture pieces. Check out this page for D&H's Queen Anne - Plain pattern to see if it matches: .

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
