Ladies and Gentlemen, I dug a little deeper into this bowl but now I’m feeling that I need a little directional advisement please. I have found several online sources that document that in 1905 Frank M. Schofield of The Schofield Company, Baltimore, Maryland (1903- 1967) joined in partnership with Henry Heer changing the name to Heer-Schofield Company. Heer died in 1927 and again the name was changed to Frank M. Schofield in 1928. In 1967 and after a few more name changes, the company was purchased by the Stieff Company. Looking into the maker’s mark on the bowl, the diamond shape denotes the bowl was crafted in 1917. As you see in the previously posted pictures that there is no company name inscribed on the bottom, only the maker’s Mark and numbers that look as tho they may have been machine stamped. The bowl has a decent sized dent in it to suggest the softer silver metal. However, I am now left to wonder if this bowl is authentic? Any suggestions from anyone into any direction I should go to obtain further information is largely appreciated. Have a great evening.
