Question
I have a small chippendale bowl with stamp international silver company numbered 692 could you tell me what it is worth and i also have silverplated jug with 1779 zales stamped on it not sure what that is.

Answer
Hello.

Look at this eBay listing to see if this is the same bowl. You can see that it sold for $8.00 plus shipping. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-International-Silver-Chippendale-692-Bowl-Bon-Bo

I could not find a "Zales" mark but I did find an "Eales 1779" mark. Could that be what you have? This was used by Leonard Silver Manufacturing Co, founded in the Boston area in 1969. It was known for making silver plate pieces. I could not find a sale of a "jug". but other pieces with this mark that I did find that have sold recently were in the range of $10 to $20.

Sorry I could not provide more help.

Best wishes,

Jim
