I have what I believe to be a cigarette case that is marked "sterling" with a hallmark of E-A-M and also a EAM with an arrow through and pointed to the left. It is also marked USA Pat. Pend and both sections are numbered 18827.

Can anyone tell me the maker and an approximate age on this item?

Thank you.

Your maker may be the Elgin-American Manufacturing Company. They first started in business in 1887 in Elgin, Illinois. They were manufacturers of silver plate flatware and hollowware.
