Do you have any information on this company?I recently purchased a Salver marked 47 on the back and can find no information to identify it or to find out what it is worth. Was it mass produced? etc. Any information you may have would be helpful.

The English Silver Mfg. Co. was founded in Brooklyn in 1955, and may still be operating (it was in the late 1970s at least). They produced only plated goods, which by definition are mass produced. You apparently have "tray no. 47." All silver from the mid-to-late 19th century onward was "mass produced," with many exceptions of course (i.e. Tiffany cranked out lots of stuff, using a mixture of machine and hand work, along with a hefty number of unique and/or entirely handmade things. Companies such as Unger Brothers in Newark produced almost entirely mass-production goods in sterling; while International Silver made both sterling and plated goods, all of it largely mass-produced, with limited amounts of hand work.)

Thank you Mr. Dietz. I really appriciate all your information and how fast you replied to me. I thought it was a pretty tray and only paid $.20 for it but I wanted to find some information about it.

Thanks again.
