The only D$A listed in Rainwater & Redfield is the mark of Daniel & Arter Globe Nevada Silver Works from Birmingham, England. Just the name gives you a sense of how deceptive they are trying to be!

R&R say that they made flatware, and I have seen quite a bit of flatware with their marks over the years (Nevada Silver being the most common in my experience).

Would it be possible for you to make a photo of the mark? If the mark matches their marks in any way, it could well mean we have identified them as a maker of hollowware as well!
