Hi

I recently purchased this “sterling silver” tea set.

Can anybody tell me when and where the tea set was produced and where can I read about the history of this tea set?

Thanks Mike

Mike - thanks for joining us. The mark is not familiar to me and does not fit the system of English or American sterling…English will have the hallmarks and American will almost always have the word “sterling” in additon to the maker’s mark. See if you can get a better pix of the mark, and/or describe the letters in the sequence they appear. It might be middle eastern, for example.

Thank you for your suggestions. It appears to be : Titulo JaDocarmo Lisboa

I can not make out the hallmark.

Thanks, Mike

Mike - I’ll take a pretty wild guess, Lisbon, Portugal. Style matches somewhat. How about it silver collectors, give us some help.

The maker’s name and the City (Lisboa=Lisbon) definitely make it Portuguese.
