Hi SMP --
I have had no luck in finding out about the sterling silver flatware that I own. It is stamped on the back == Chapman & Armstrong, it has a patent # PATD112905, and also the mark of a "Y" stamped in it. Now my problem is, who is the manufacturer ? Chapman & Armstrong must only be a division of a larger manufacturer because they are not listed under either American or British Silver --- HELP!!! If you could only direct me down the right avenue, I could finish my research. Thanks

PS. Inside the "Y" are the letters R L B

"MaryEllen Buys" <mtbuys@earthlink.net>

Mary Ellen:

Chapman and Armstrong would be the retailers of your silver. The "Y" is actually the maker's trademark. RLB stands for Rogers, Lunt and Bowlen of Greenfield , MA, the precursors to Lunt Silversmiths. They operated under that name from 1901 to approximately 1935.

Your "patent number" is actually the Patent date, 11/29/05 or November 29, 1905. If you can describe the pattern or post a picture, we can probably tell you the pattern name.

Hope this answers your questions.

Could it be the pattern Mount Vernon which was introduced by RLB in 1905?

Hi!

I have one of those spoons, from Rogers Lunt and Bowlen. I have been trying to find the pattern for it, but no luck. It has a patent date of 1908.

I am going to try to post a picture, thanks in advance!

There was a jewelry business in Galesburg, Illinois with the name Chapman & Armstrong.
