QUESTION: We have a set of soup spoons that look like Gorham King II, but they don't match it completely.  They have a double unfolding flower/leaf at the bottom.  They do appear to say sterling.  What could they bed?

ANSWER: Hello.

What are all the exact words and symbols on the back? You can submit a followup or another question with the info.

Thanks.

Jim

QUESTION: Thank you.
On the back it says "sterling" and 1888 and something else I can't decipher. I'm sending a picture.

ANSWER: I can't decipher it either.

At this point, I recommend trying the forum at www.925-1000.com. Several experts participate and perhaps one will recognize what you have. Sorry I was unable to help.

Bets wishes,

Jim

QUESTION: Hi, thanks,

So what I can see now is PAT above 1899 and a bear/monkey and an anchor (?) and the word "Sterling." I'm trying another picture.

Answer
This could be Gorham. Look at the marks on  this page (not the date marks): http://www.925-1000.com/Gorham_Date_Code.html . If there is a script "G" after the anchor, that would indicate Gorham. The animal would be a lion.

Check out the pictures here for the New Queens pattern. See what you think. http://www.replacements.com/webquote/GS_NEQ.htm#181816
