Hello everyone:

Please take a look at these two vintage sterling comports.
Do you recognize the hallmarks?
What year would you date these pieces?

Thanks for the help,
Cyn

Well, I was able to find a possible ID for one comport. I believe the 2nd comport to be by Mueck-Cary (Towle), 1940s(?). Still need help w/ the other.

Usually US silver can not be dated by the mark alone. From the looks of it, these pieces are in the styles that came into vogue in the 20's and persist to the present.
