Hi there and thanks for joining us. The Silver City Plate Co. was formed in the late 1800s and made silver plated wares until its assets were bought out by the International Silver Co. in 1908. I’m not sure if International used the Silver City mark after 1908 but doubt it (silver City is not listed in my references as one of the International trademarks) , so your pot probably dates to the turn of the 20th century. The number stamped on it would be the pattern number.

As silver plate it has little commercail value.

Regards,

Uncle Vic
