silver overlay scent bottle

Post by faeriequeene on June 3rd 2015, 5:54 pm

Just bought a beautiful 4" high scent bottle with silver overlay.
No marks except STERLING and a scratched F
I think it's probably American but wondered how to find out for sure.
The number on the base doesn't match the stopper, but it fits fine.

Probably is American, but the makers mark is partially worn, it makes it slightly difficult to work out who the maker is.

I saved your image and rotated it, as it was upside down, I think I have found the maker:
La Pierre Mfg. Co.
New York, NY & Newark, NJ ~ 1888 - Present
Sterling novelties and vanity items, a division of International Silver since 1929.

I have now looked at every American mark and agree it probably is La Pierre Mfg Co. even tho' the letter looks very slightly different.
This is the part I love, investigation.....
