Hi there and thnaks for joining us. Your butter knife bears the mark of the Poole Silver Co, Taunton, Mass. Poole was founded in 1893 and only made silver plated wares until 1946 when a sterling silver division was added and used the sterling mark shown on your knife. The company was sold to Towle Silversmiths in 1971. I’ll poke around for the pattern…others feel free tp chip in.
