I have several miscellaneous pieces of sterling from this same house and I’m thinking I should just sell them on ebay as a lot. Can you please take a look and give me your best guess as to what these pieces might be worth? I really have no clue.
Starting at the top, (1) a scalloped dish that is 5" long. On the back, it says “Gorham,” three hallmarks, then “Sterling 445.” Any idea of age, its value and what its intended purpose is?
(2) A footed dish that is 6" long. On the back are 3 hallmarks, then “Sterling A7713.” Can you tell me who made it and when it was made? As well as value?
(3) Handled mirror. With handle, 6 1/8" long, beveled mirror. No manufacturer’s name, no hallmark, not marked Sterling but it is sterling. Maybe I’m not finding something; it is heavily tarnished. By the way, should I not use silver polish on stuff I plan to sell?
(4) Serving spoon. Hallmarks on back of handle. I assume its sterling. Is it? Do you know who made it and when? What might its value be?
(5) Sterling brush. Says “Sterling Silver” SOMETHING I CAN’T READ and then “1000 FINE (a hallmark) 15000.”
And that’s it. I hope that wasn’t overwhelming and confusing. Thanks so much for your help.
