Five piece tea service...please help identify maker and date

I will post a picture as soon as I find my cord…however, I have a five piece tea service with the following marks in contiguous boxes: right facing eagle head (not detailed), old english B (maybe D), and what appears to be a woman in a full skirt holding a staff. The skirt has what appears to be the “pi” symbol on it; although this could just be detail). It says STERLING under these boxes and 500 under that.

Please help! Thanks

Hi there and thanks for joining us. I don’t see the mark you describe in my American books, and the word “sterling” is a strong clue it is American. Obviously a picture will help. Perhaps our astute readers can solve this one?

Regards,

Uncle Vic
