help ident. mark on porringer bowl

I need help identifying the mark on the back of the handle of this porringer bowl. The only thing I know is that because it is a lion in profile it would have been made sometime after 1831. Is it possible to figure out a date and/or manufacturer from just the mark or maybe from the shape and design of the handle? Any information would be helpful. Thanx much! :slight_smile:

Your porringer bowl was made by the Ellmore Silver Co of Meriden, Connecticut. They were in business from 1935 to 1960, so that gives an approximate date range.
