Marked "MERIDEN SILVER PLATE CO QUADRUPLE PLATE" and has the lion hallmark. Also has the number 38 underneath. Measures 7" by 5.5" by 1.75". I am estimating late 1800s but this is a new area for me any information on age, value and history would be appreciated. Thanks, Anne

    Hello, AnnieinTX: I too, collect select pieces of silver plate, from Meriden.

    The Meriden Silver Plate Co. was founded in 1869 in Meriden, Connecticut by Charles Casper. They were one of the original companies that joined together to form the International Silver Co. in 1898. These are several of the known marks.

    If you Google, "Meriden Silver Plate", your search will produce, many different links, to provide you with an abundance of information, pertaining to this company, which was prominent, during the mid - late 19th century.

    There are several websites, which show your mark. I included this one, in particular, as it also provided, a few other helpful tips, for silver plate. Please refer to item #6, as it shows your mark:
