I have 12 beautiful Sterling Silver forks beaded on both

Customer Question

I have 12 beautiful Sterling Silver forks beaded on both sides with scroll at top and bottom that belonged to my great-grandmother who lived in Chattanooga. I can't make out the marks on the back except Sterling Silver and the name E.P. Durando. I know Durando opened his Chattanooga shop in 1872 and died in 1902. I have a couples of pics if that would help.

Please do add pictures of the mark on the back of one of these forks (whichever is stamped the most legibly) so that I can give you

an answer for your question. Thanks!
