Help ID Silver Markings on Tea Set


We purchased a silver plate tea set and need help to ID the markings. The markings shown are all in a straight line. I had to split them up for uploading.
Thank You

Hi there,
The marks you have posted are not English. They may well be American but I don’t know for sure. You could try posting them in the American section and see what Uncle Vic has to say.



That is an American silverplate mark used by the Forbes Silver Company.
Founded in 1894 as a department of the Meriden Britannia Company for silverplating.
Became part of the International Silver Company in 1898. IS continued to use the Forbes trademarks until 1935.


Thanks Snuffer.
