My name is Carolyn.
Hi, Diane. Are you there today? Carolyn
Diane, For you information I have seen pictures of his gold jewelry that he signs EW 14K.
I am almost positive this is Ed Wiener, but you are the expert. I bought several pieces from a reliable Seller. A small ring and 4 pendants...this is one of them. All are marked Sterling and EDW. They are beautiful and incredibly well made. His Hallmark uses the same identical block lettering. Carolyn
I hope I am not bothering you but one more bit of information:
The Ring has the same dot type design as the image on the left you sent me.
The Necklace has a long projection at the top that attaches it to the pendant. It with the same type design at the top of the projection as the pendant.. The piece weighs 12.1 grams. With the projection it is 3-1/4" x 2".
I sent you the bio also. I had already looked that up under American Sterling Hallmarks.
A better Picture:
Thanks for your help. I believe you did the best you could with the information available. I am sorry we were not able to absolutely authenticate the EDW Mark.
As for the McDonald book for $30.00....I have been to that site numerous times...the book originally sold for $30.00....it is not for sale for that price now....the $100+ rate is closer to the mark.
