Looking for some info on a tea set that was my great grandmothers.

The following info is on the four pieces.

  • Tea pot bottom: 1914 Sheffield Hallmark, the words "STERLING SILVER", Under that the mark B112, other side of bottom, "1 PINT".

  • The creamer and sugar bowl have the 1914 Hallmark with just "STERLING"and both have "F13" marks.

  • The tray has the same hallmark, "STERLING SILVER" and the mark A601 and under that the number "12".

Tea pot has Ivory or white bone heat absorbers. Looked everywhere but no makers mark.

Any ideas out there who made it?

I'm not as knowledgable as most of the forum members, and a picture is necessary for accurate identification of the marks, but I'm leaning towards your set being the product of the Watson Company, since it is marked with the word sterling, and I believe I've seen pieces by them marked sterling silver as well. The Sheffield marks would be their trademark of a crown, and old english style W, and a lion facing left.

Hi Oldfed. Welcome to the forum!

Please take a moment and click on the "Read Before You Post" link at the top of any page here for some good pointers on how to get helpful responses to questions including adding things to your question such as clear photos of both the overall objects and closeups of any markings, telling us about why you are interested in finding out more about this particular tea set and telling us of your general interest in silver. It is hard to tell you much without this. As a start, though, from your rough description the numbers and letters sound like they are likely only pattern numbers used by companies to help with their inventory.
