I have a small pitcher or maybe it's a creamer made by the D & C International Silver Company. Patented 8-27-1918. The mark looks like a hammer with a number 2 beside it.

Do you know anything about this piece or company?

This looks to be a pitcher or server for syrup. The D & C refers to a company which used it. D & C could be a restaurant, hotel, department store, rail road etc. The cover over the pouring lip is the give away: usually a creamer has an open lip, syrups have covered ones. A very nice little piece. Now, to figure out what D & C was.

Do you know who the mark belongs to on the bottom of the pitcher? What company made it?

International Silver Co. is the largest manufacturer of plated ware (they also produced sterling). Do a forum search for International Silver Co.

That should get you started.
