Need help identifying vase

barbcollinsDecember 17, 2009

This vase was passed down to me from my mother. She said it was given to her by her Grandmother.

We tried to find out about the mark years ago (pre-internet) but didn't have any luck. The numbers on the mark are 466/16

Does anybody recognize it? Suggestions where to look?

Have you tried polishing it? Try using a good silver polish like International or Wrights.
I think it is likely silver plate but don't recognize the mark and haven't taken the time to look it up.
Any chance it could be from somewhere other than the US or England?

Can you tell what's in the boxes under the fleur-de-lis, crown, and lion? Looks like a star in the middle...

(Oh, I'm clueless, but it's awfully pretty!)

Oh, I think I found it.

Under E.G. Webster & Son. Now I have to figure out how to date it. I am guessing the numbers 466/16 mean there were 466 made, and this is number 16?

No I haven't tried polishing it (don't want to hurt it). Yes, it is silver plate.

Gentle polishing it won't hurt it....and it will show you the condition it is in.
Those numbers on the bottom most likely do not show anything about the edition and the number....that's for art prints. It's likely the style number.

Yes, it is a smaller Lion, a Star, and another Lion

"Gentle polishing it won't hurt it....and it will show you the condition it is in."

Should I use regular silver polish?

Oh ok, I was hoping it would be the same.
Any idea how to date it?

Use something like International silver polish or Wrights....not one of those dip cleaners nor anything abrasive like twinkle.
The best guess on the date is by the time the maker was using that mark and the style.
My best guess is about 1910.
