Name That Pattern!

I’ve been thinking about writing a post on electro plated English flatware for some time now as I have not been able to find one central source of this information. I’ve identified about forty pattern names thus far. These pattern names have come from either catalog pages or advertisements. But I’m at a loss to identify twenty more.


If you have a catalog page or advertisement containing any of the patterns shown, I would greatly appreciate receiving a photo of or link to that documentation. My email address is


The following list is really the only information I have regarding these twenty patterns.  The first picture in this post contains images taken from catalogs and the second contains images of actual pieces of flatware.

    You do love a mystery! I’m a little surprised that no one has ever researched and documented this kind of thing–you’ll fill a big gap, if you can find the info. I like number 15, with the thistle!

    I’m looking for a pattern made of flowers, and is engraved all over the pitcher. There also is a “flower” sign on the bottom. This pitcher holds about a quart of (water), and is extensively engraved…and yes I do like finding the history of several “heirloom” items we have inherited. Thanks…

    I have a dessert set in pattern #11 that you picture above. It is backstamped “Nevada Silver D&A.” I wrote to you before about this set. It was in it’s original box. You mentioned that it was English. I do not know the pattern name, but it is also marked with the registration number that you provide above. The set has 6 forks and 6 dessert spoons.
