I have a beautiful covered, footed butter dish with a mark on the bottom that looks like a very fine spider's web. The top of the dish has lovely kind of floral engraving all over and an acorn handle. There are no letters or names with the spider's web mark. Sound familiar to anyone?

I have copied this from a previous post left by one of the board members who had queried whether there was a star and the letter W in the middle of the spiderweb.

"If the mark does have the star and W, then the maker is EG Webster from Brooklyn, NY. The company was in business in some form or other from 1859-1928; I am not sure when the spider web mark was used. EG Webster primarily made silver plate."

Hope this helps.
