My former employer presented a keepsake to me a few years

Customer Question

My former employer presented a keepsake to me a few years ago. It is a silver plated-quad plated Charter Oak pattern made by Southington Cutlery Co. This company sold in 1893 as far as I know. The bottom is stamped as such and bears the #36. I have had a hard time finding anymore out about it. Value--Market value

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please know that I cannot accept any requests for "live conversations" such as phone calls.
I give my best answers in writing when I have time to think about them.
Sometimes a "Chat box" will pop-up asking if you would like a live conversation. Please know it is not from me.

i need to know what the piece is.

Please send a photo of the piece.

To send photos you may use the "attach file" or "add file" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

If another professional enters our exchanges, feel free to tell them that you are working with me if you wish.

Kind regards,

Doris

It is a wine cooler.
Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 5 months ago.

Do you still want to cancel the service?

Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 5 months ago.

If not, then I need a photo of the wine cooler.

There are three different patterns "Charter Oak" that are associated with this company or its successor.

Kind regards,

Doris
