I have two sets of candlesticks. One set is marked Crosby Sterling and the other set looks to read Duckin Creation, also has a "graceful ladies" hand as part of the mark.

I've not been able to find any information/histories, regarding either of these companies.
Who are/were they???
Thank you!!

"CROSBY" by itself was a mark of A. Cohen & Sons Corp. This firm was founded in New York City in 1911. They were wholesalers of jewelry, flatware and holloware in sterling and silverplate.

I imagine that something labeled "stearling" is a cheap foreign knockoff of a more authentic product.

Actually, it says Sterling Weighted in a semi circle with CROSBY in the center.
Please excuse my typos...very tired tonight!

Thank you!

Hi Julie,

The other set is by Duchin Creations. Rainwater shows the company working in the 1950s. I can remember selling Duchin (silverplate) in the '70s, when I was in the fine gift section of an upscale department store. The sales rep told me that the hands were a reference to famous pianist/bandleader Eddy Duchin, I've never found any other reference to that, so have no idea if the company was actually connected to Eddy and his son Peter. Weighted Duchin sterling pieces are fairly common.
