Here's a reply to the posting Ehrlich Silver Mark Polish/Continental Silver in "Continental Silver", which I cannot access as a New Member:

I did some quick web research and found one seller of Judaica describing J. Ehrlich as a Jewish silversmith in Warsaw, Poland, working between 1885 and 1900. Some of his pieces were described as being made in "Polish silver", which was distinguished from silverplate. I never heard of "Polish silver" before. Perhaps you should contact a museum specializing in Judaica silver and ask them about your candlesticks.

"Polish silver" is like "German silver" plate!

Polish silver certainly sounded like a euphemism for silverplate! Thanks. I hope the poster in the Continental Silver Forum reads this thread.

Actually, "German Silver" is not plate but "Alpacca," an alloy of nickel, copper, zinc and tin. It contains no silver at all.
I cannot speak for "Polish silver," but if Sazikov is right (which he always is), then the piece is not silver plate but alpacca.
