Silver and Flatware/Silver? Plated? Cocktail Forks Info


Jim, I am amazed at the amount of information you have to give! I am trying to find information on 2 cocktail forks:
1) Duparquet 5
2) MFDCO A1+ with a symbol that I can't make out.

Gee, anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated..

Thanks for the good work you do!


Looks the information train has hit a snowbank! I don't have any information on either of the companies you listed. The only thing that I recognize is the "A1" which is a common designation found on silver plate pieces.

Sorry I was no help this time.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
