Hi I have a Sterling Creamer and Sugar that belonged to my Grandmother. The only other mark besides STERLING in a bust of George Washington incased in an oval. Can anyone tell me who made this?

Thanks Chuck

Welcome to the forum, Chuck.
The Mount Vernon Co. Silversmiths Inc. of Mount Vernon, NY used that mark. Roger Williams Silver Co. and Mauser were among several companies that combined to form Mount Vernon in 1903. They were acquired by Gorham in 1913.
