I have a very old silver or silver plate bowl with cherubs…

Customer Question
I have a very...

I have a very old silver or silver plate bowl with cherubs all over.. was my grandmothers Maked international S. Co. I think it says 1239 or 1339 or 1229. Then 4 fancy letters that I cannot make out. above the international s,co. there is an arched design which says something that starts with a "D" any ideas?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I will do my best to answer without photos.

A silver plated bowl with cherubs made by International Silver Company

in pattern number 1**9, likely also reads EPNS in fancy letters which represent

Electro Plated Nickel Silver (silver plated). This bowl would date to the early 20th-century

and have a value of $65 resale.

If it were sterling silver, it would HAVE to be also marked either 925/1000 fine, 925 or STERLING

on the bottom with these other marks.
