I have some Sterling 925 Serving pieces that are marked Peru and I cannot find anything about them. What is a good source? I tried an Internet search and all I found was auctions and Jewelry, not information.

Apart from a few well established companies, for example Camusso, most Peruvian silver was (and is) made in small workshops and is often only marked 925 Peru.

One of the pieces is Camuso. It is a very large serving spoon10 3/4 inches long that has a pattern very much like Grande Baroque. Also there is a 2 piece salad serving set (fork & spoon) with an ornate pierced pattern on the handles, 11 inches long with the logo Peru 925 SCL.

Camusso is still going strong. Their web page is at
quote:
"In 1933, the Italian citizen CARLO MARIO CAMUSSO founded in Lima a small factory shop conceived to manufacture silver objects. He combined the rich Peruvian silver craftsmanship with the refined European style and his own inborn skill to transform silver into delicate pieces. The combination of these three elements has been the base for what was going to become through the years a well renowned company. After Mr. Camusso, and already close to 70 years of existence, the company was directed by Siro Tonani Ricci - former President of the Board of Directors. He continued the ideals of the founder placing the company at an important international level."
The SCL on your salad set is almost certainly the maker's initials - I have several pieces with similar three initial marks - but I'm afraid I don't know of any lists, or even whether there have been any official attempt to regulate these, and if so, the time frame.

Might not the Peruvian embassy perhaps be a source of information about silver makers in their country? I would think they would have that information for the purpose of helping promote the country's products.

Just received the following e-mail:
quote:
"Hi Patrick,

Thanks for your help. I checked the Camusso site and figured out this is a Rice spoon in the Vienna pattern. It will be on Ebay later today as these pieces were all bought for resale. I just hate listing things with a bad description

Again, Thanks
Lainey Stern"
I'm very much afraid this is not in the spirit of the Forum and an accepted member should know better!
