Can anyone tell me about this company? Dates in existence, etc.? Have a pitcher, I think is silverplate over copper, with a mark as follows: A circle - with Buck Silver Co. Salamanca N.Y. around it. a deer with antlers in the center and Quadruple Plate around the outside. I'm trying to date it and also find out something about the company.

Can anyone help?

According to an old copy of Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers by Dorothy Rainwater, Buck Silver Company was listed in Salamanca, NY 1900-1914. They made an extensive line of plated holloware The company became a plating company after that and was out of business by 1922. The description of your piece indicates c. 1900. I have not seen many pieces by this company. Vi
