Question
I have several pieces of flatware marked Myers & Marble with marks that appear to be a lion, an anchor, and a tulip (perhaps)and sterling

The pattern (hand engraved) has leafy foliage with a bird and an open space for a monogram or initial.

I would guess up state NY.

any idea who Myers & Maple were and where?

thanks for your help,

Steven

Answer
Hellol.

Could the "tulip" be the script letter "G"? If so, the pieces were probably made by Gorham and my guess is that Myers & Marble were the original retailers. This was a common form of marking in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Check out the Gorham patterns here: http://www.sterlingflatwarefashions.com/ .

Best wishes,

Jim
