AS John said, we really need to see close up photos of the marks to accurately identify them. The Wilcox platter was made by the Wilcox Silver Plate Co. of Meriden, Connecticut. Wilcox was founded in about 1865 and was one of the original companies that merged to form International Silver Co. in 1898, thus the “I.S.” letters following the Wilcox name. Wilcox used a variety of marks over the years and a clear photo of the mark on your platter will probably allow us to date it fairly well. It is silver plated, not solid “sterling silver”.
