A pair of sterling shell dishes 5" in diameter on 3 ball feet marked “Sterling -W-”. Any thoughts as to maker and value? Thanks. (I mistakenly put this in the British sterling category first. Obviously, these dishes are not English, so I relisted them here.)
It seems this mark is still a mystery. In looking at another silver site, I came across a pair of sterling decanter labels. The seller states that they are both marked sterling and one (Port) has the “-W-” mark like the shell bowls and the other (Scotch) although the same style is marked with a W in a shield. There is no image of the marks.
