Customer Question
Thank you for your...

Thank you for your help. Closing down a family home and found a pewter pitcher. It is marked "Trade Mark"

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Whoops! "Poole's Pewtwe Taunton Mass WP 5"

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

A faint "1'" is seen also. Can you date it for me? Also needs expert polishing, looks like it has been half a century since it had attention! Thanks for your help!

I, I have 2 very old and Barton pieces that I believe are
Hello - I have 2 very old Reed and Barton pieces that I believe are silverplate or hollowware. They have been stored away and are nearly black in color. There are markings on the bottom of each. One is an ice pitcher with an ice guard. The markings on that are hard to read - it looks like a small C PCA and under it is Poole Silver (with a marking I can't identify) under that is Taunton Mass and under that the numbers 5008. The other is a tea pot with the very same design on the handle and the feet. The markings on that are 1759 and under that is Read & Barton and under that is 5. I'm wondering how old they are and if they have any value. Thank you for any direction you can provide. Nancy W … read more
