Good Morning! A few Quick Questions on some Flatware help with Manufacturer and Patter / Age would be great!! First is a Demi-sppin marked with a Crown lion facing left and the word Sterling Nice pattern. 4 inches long

next is a 4 inch long demi marled with a head profile facing left I think and Sterling

Next is a Hammmered Spoon 5 1/2 inches long with Washingtons head on the handle top. marked with CMR within a triangle a . an arm holding a knife and then a Bird profile facing left and the word sterling.

Last one I hope smile is a Small Pie Server / Torte ? with a Great pattern made by Webtser. Reminds me of Woodlily.

The first piece looks like the Diana pattern by International patented 1900. The second one looks very familiar, but further research needed to pin down specifics. The images wouldn't come up on the third piece, but the mark described is that of Charles M. Robbins of Attleboro, Massachusetts.

1. Diana by International is the pattern, and Turner gives it a c.1901 introduction. I think the mark is probably an Indian head on its side.

2. Unfortunately, I can't really make out the marks, so I can't name the maker or pattern. But it looks like kind of a knock-off of Whiting's Louis XV pattern of 1891--so your spoon's pattern is probably from the mid-1890s.

3. The Chas. M. Robbins mark on your spoon was used c.1900-1926, according to Rainwater.

4. I think it might be a cheese server--it might be a little small for a pie knife. It probably dates to the 1940s or so.
