Customer Question
I have some silver...

I have some silver afterdinner glasses with a marking on the bottom DFSNY Paris. They appear to be art deco to me, but I am not sure

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.

I also believe they are silver plate. There is a hallmark but I cannot see it clearly.

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

I don't know much! They belonged to my mother who traveled a lot overseas and loved Paris. I believe the letters are DESNY, not DFSNY

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment. If you cannot send photos, I can still work with your descriptions; however, I can give more accurate answers if I have photos.

Can you send photos?

If so, then -

Please send photos of the items.

Please send a photo of the marks and/or words on the bottom.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "ADD FILES" in the blue box link (next to "SEND" or "SUBMIT") 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.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

http://ww2.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert-hl

Please do not try to use the site email method of sending photos without specific instructions from me.

How many do you have?

Kind regards,
Doris
