My silver trophy cup has peculiar marks - "WB", a horse head facing left, and "silver", all in different shape shields.

I hope the picture comes up - it's the first time I've tried to do a post with a picture.

Comments on posting as well as info on cup very welcome.

I await correction, but I believe this is the mark of Weidlich Brothers Manufacturing of Bridgeport CT (1901-1950). They specialied in sterling and plate trophies.

I removed your duplicate post.

Sorry WEV - for the first time ever I have to disagree with you! - Not Conneticut! - Although these marks have been published as such!
(One of my pet peeves is wrongly ascribed marks on too little evidence!)
These are the marks of Warner Brothers (No relation, I think!) - of Delhi in British India. They are working thru the period between 1918 and 1947 and made many fine pieces. smile

Thanks for the info.
New, related, question:
Does anybody have any info on Warner Brothers of Delhi defined in the last post? A simple search brings up zillions of references to W.B., the film company, but I didn't find any to the silversmiths.
Thanks again.
