Hello!
I am looking for a mark on a salt cellar, at least I think it is. The mark is OAL R&C 800. Is anyone familiar with this maker? Thanks so much in advance for your help. I would post a picture but still have not the expertise.

Looks like Italian 800/100 silver with the mark used from 1944-68, 20 being the maker's registry number, AL being the province of Alessandria; R&C the maker's mark.

Answer to Old Italian Mark Question by Dragonfly in Continental Silver
Posted by: efuerst100
posted 08-29-2009 06:28 PM

I just spent some time looking at some older postings in the Continental Silver Forum and saw that somebody in 2005 was trying to identify the maker of some older Italian flatware with the following marks: 20 AL, 800 and R_C. It also referred back to another posting of flatware with similar marks. The maker is Ricci. Most of the older patterns are still made, albeit in 925 silver and silverplate. The fork depicted is in the Baguette pattern.

Thank you Cheryl, Scott & efuerst.
I finally found this question I posted & thanks to efuerst100 I located my items. I had not seen his response untill recently.Turns out to be a condiment set (mine minus the cruets). Maker is indeed Ricci. I found it pictured on the Association of Small Collectors of Antique Silver newsletter July #39!
Thank you all again for you assistance as always!
