I'm sorry I don't have photos, but I need some help in identifying a few pieces.

One is an ice bucket I guess and has stamped what looks like "Toriones". Below that is the word Omega (with the e inside the omega symbol) and beneath that is what looks like "industria argent...". That's all I can make out. I guess it's silverplate. I picked it up at my local Goodwill for $8. It is stamped with a design on both sides and has handles with a shell motif and leaves.

The other piece is a bowl with a decorative floral rim and handles. It looks like it says "Industria" followed by a ribbon circle with overlapping ends and something inside it. This is followed by what looks like Argentina. Also picked this up from Goodwill for $7.

I also found a champagne cooler/bucket that is marked Sheridan with a crown, s, and shield. It says silverplate beneath it. I can probably figure this one out with a little research, but am most curious about the other two.

I think they were a couple of pieces in someone's trophy case.

Thanks for any help.
Sorry for the lack of photos.

"Industria Argentina" basically translates as Made in Argentina. It occurs on both silver and silverplate items generally made in Buenos Aires.
