Hello,Please add a photo of the set and any marks on the bottom of one piece. Send different photos if the marks are different. You can do this by using the paper clip icon or the ADD FILES button. These features work best on a desktop computer. (please do not use a flash and back up a bit to get clear pics of the marks)

Here are a few pieces. I would appreciate any general information you have. These were all my grandfathers he passes away in 1975 at age 95, so by they are definitely vintage antiques. I am fairly certain they came from his mother . Thank you Ann

Ann,I would need to see photos of the marks on the bottom of each piece to tell you who made them, if they are silver and what they are worth. Please add those as well. Thank you!
