I hope someone can help. I have been looking up some information on a 5 piece coffee/tea set that I recently inherited. The information that I have found and identified so far is as follows:
The trademak is: R W (stags head) & S -- then it says STERLING -- and then the # 2807. Any information on this would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

That is the mark used by R. Wallace & Sons of Wallingford CT.

thanks WEV. Is the 2807 a pattern number? and if so, where on the web can I find out more information on it. Thanks again.

What kind of information are you seeking?

Did you use the Silver Salon Search function?
For example this is from a prior post entitled: Wallace Bros., Co. Wallingford, CT

by Paul Lemieux, Moderator posted 02-14-2001 12:19 PM:
...... For some additional company information, the following paragraph comes from Rainwater:

"In July 1875, Robert Wallace with his sons...and sons-in-law...formed a co-partnership under the name of Wallace Brothers for the manufacture of silverplated flatware on a base of cast steel. Manufacture of silverplated hollowware also began at this time."

Hope this is informative & helps you out a little.
