Help in identifying flatware by maker's mark


Recommended Posts

I'm seeking help in identifying a set of flatware we have, which came with no box.  I have searched the internet but to no avail.  It's not vintage, but I cannot seem to find this same mark on any other flatware.  Anyone out there have an idea?

I wonder if you sent that image/picture to Replacements, along with a picture of the flatware (maybe a set if you  have one so they can see spoons, knives, etc) they might be able to identify it?

Well, oddly, I did contact Replacements.com and heard nothing back.  I thought maybe they felt since I was not going to be buying anything, that the request was not worth their time.  I may try again, but I'm still open to anyone's ideas.  Not sure if it's the brand of flatware, or a corporate brand (like Pottery Barn) or what.  Just would like to find out.

@Marvinator, could you post photo(s) of the entire front and back of one of those pieces? (So we can see the style of the handle, try to guess in what country it was made. See what it's made out of, etc.)

 

Also, I can't tell whether that mark is 3-D or flat. I know it's a small mark, but maybe an alternate photo of that mark would be helpful.

Yes, I've searched Google many times.  I've tried using a myriad of different words, meanings, "Logo" "Manufacturer's Mark" "Flatware" "Silverware" even "Housewares" and many others and am still stymied.  

Image search is different. You actually put your picture of the logo into the search box, and Google finds similar images.

 

ETA a link to Google's support page for that feature, which I belatedly realized might be helpful...

Image search was the first thing I did when I saw the pic. No joy.

Aye, well. It was worth a shot.

 

The weird thing is that it looks a LOT like the logo of a Canadian building supplies chain, but AFAIK they don't sell flatware. I guess it's not inconceivable that they'd have made a special purchase at some point, but whether they'd still have a record of who the manufacturer was is a whole other thing.

I have no idea what that pattern is called or who the manufacturer could be, but I think it's a very handsome design.

It would go beautifully with my hammered-steel Paderno pots. :)

World Market Hammered Flatware

 World Market's is a round design, though I haven't seen the logo on it.

Vera Wang Wedgewood Flatware

good match, but I don't think this is it, because VW puts her name on EVERYTHING and this has no name.  

 

I'm back to square one.  I've written to Replacements.com and asked once again, with no response. Oh I got the 'thank you for your question' auto response, and I got the 'welcome to Replcements.com' email both promising a response in  a couple of days. But then, Nothing.  Please, keep an eye out for this logo, it's a little thing, but it's driving me crazy. LOL

I must have shamed someone into actions.  I heard back from Replacements.com....they are unable to match the pattern or brand.  Sheesh. 

keep me in your thoughts whenever you're looking at flatware.  


May I ask what drives your quest?  Are you missing a piece?

You say that it came with no box.  Came from where?  Did you buy it at a store or a yard sale or what?  And where did you get it (geographically)?  My everyday stainless is Gorham - I have no idea of the pattern, but I know I got it at Costco.  I would guess that it was made for Costco to sell and I wouldn't expect it to be available anywhere except maybe ebay.

We use a very similar looking pattern from a different brand. 

Yes, very similar, but the handles are very straight.

We live in Missouri, and it came from a thrift store.  My efforts are to find the brand as well as the pattern name so that should be need more in the future, we can consider ordering it.  Replacements.com has no idea.  I have no idea.  I'm just hoping that someone somewhere will know the logo or the pattern.  Maybe even have the same stuff.
