I'm hoping for some help in identifying the makers of any of these pictured patterns.

The names are my own for purposes of identification--not original to the pieces.

"ANOKA," a double-die pattern (D-D), is completely unmarked.

"ARABIAN" (D-D) is marked "coin."

"BEADED COTTAGE" (D-D) is marked "coin" & "W.C. Defriez" (retailer).

"BEADED MIRROR" (D-D) is marked "coin." The presentation is inscribed "Laura from her Father, Feb. 1864" on the reverse. The fork is part of a 3-piece youth set.

"BOUQUET" (S-D) is marked "sterling 8."

"CATHEDRAL" (D-D) is marked "coin" & "Larmour" (for Wm. B. Larmour, a Baltimore retailer).

"CENTRALIA" (D-D) is marked "sterling" & "E. Jaccard & Co." (retailer).

At auction there is one that is identical to your beaded cottage and was marked by another St. Louis firm.

F. A. Durgin would be a likely maker for this attractive pattern.
