Re: Re: Quality marks on early American Silver

I was able to identify two of the marks on your spoons. Andrews NORFOLK is probably Jeremiah Andrews of Norfolk, Virginia. Born in England he advertized in New York as early as 1774 as a jeweler. He moved to several locations including Philadelphia and even traveling to Savanah, Georgia for a short time before settling in Norfolk in 1796. He ran a succesful business there until his death in 1817.

Palmer & Bachelder & Co were a Boston firm in the 1850's.

Hope this helps.
