Alvin's profitable Colonial reproductions brought it in direct competition with the prominent Gorham Company of Providence, Rhode Island. Gorham prudently negotiated the purchase of Alvin’s dies in 1928. Form this time, the Prince Eugene pattern, which is sterling, not silver plate, was manufacturer by Alvin-Gorham. Alvin had also a silver plate version of this pattern, so you can find silver plated units of this pattern made by Alvin. Y

You can easily distinguish both for the marks, as the silver plated units have a different mark, usually EPNS o indicate it's silver plated.
