silver mark

I have a silver sugar shaker. Dome lid with etched floral design, flame finial, canister having repousse village scene with figure, house, fences. It has a mark on the bottom of a windmill, flanked by a smoking pipe on each side of the windmill. Any idea of the maker and age?

Re: silver mark

Your silverplate shaker was manufactured by the Barbour Silver Company of Hartford, Connecticut. The company was one of the first to join with others to become the International Silver Company. I am unable to give you a date of manufacture.

Thank you Fred, how you help people out here is very generous. You're very kind. If you ever come across as to the dating, could you let me know? I've looked everywhere. Thank you again!
