Can anyone identify this associated silver pattern? On the back in this order it reads - "PAT.'17 Yourex Associated Silver Co."

I am also trying to find a good reference for pattern identification for both silverplate and sterling silver. Any suggestions?

Hagan shows no Associated Silver pattern for 1917. Could you post a pic of the piece? There are a number of this company's items that use the dies and patterns of other companies, which would be covered under existing patents. The patent could apply to the type of piece not the pattern.

This has nothing to do with the pattern, but according to Rainwater "YOUREX" was the mark of the George E. Herring Company of Chicago. The mark was registered in 1907 for use on "imitation silverware." The company was out of business by 1915.

Do you mean American patterns only?
What is your budget?

If it is a good source, I would be willing to spend some money. I would however like to not be limited to American patterns since many of my pieces come from Europe.

For flatware pattern identification, I'd recommend the following as a beginner's set. They are all in print and readily available in the U.S. Total cost should be around $100. You can easily spend far more, it depends on your specific needs.
  • Dolan's "American Sterling Silver Flatware" (patterns 1830 - 1990.)
  • Hagan's "Silverplated Flatware" (American patterns 1840s - 1980s.)
  • Pickford's "Silver Flatware, English, Irish and Scottish 1660 - 1980" (sterling and silverplate patterns.)
