I have two small sterling bowls marked with a wreath with an S in the middle, followed by "sterling 174".

Does anyone know who the maker may be?

The wreath is faint but appears to be a series of s-shaped squiggles forming the circle. The S is very plain.

Thanks so much.

Hi Susan!

Just a tad late in answering your question & hope you haven't given up on us.

I believe the mark may be that of A.M. Soffel Co. Inc. of Newark, New Jersey operating 1920-1930.

If you have a copy of, or can get the "Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers" by Dorothy Rainwater you can compare the mark attributed to them.

Hope this helps.
