Both of these firms were among those who joined forces in 1898 to form the International Silver Company. The trademarks for both companies also continued to be used for many years thereafter.

That said, I think it is highly unlikely that your cup and saucer started out life together. I can't imagine a retailer matching up a cup and saucer from two different manufacturers, even if they were part of the same company. Cups & saucers were almost always sold as a set, and they should have, if not identical marks, at least the marks of the same company. I'm afraid you probably have a marriage. Sorry!
