    I have searched internet, Schafer seems to be an unknown in the silver world
    It's really a very unique piece and after a good polishing (needs one) it's
    quite spectacular the side grapes are a chore to clean

      English Silver walking lion weith anchor. "A" is for 1900. Its a start I will see what I can find. Dave

      Shafer Co. of Washington, DC from that time period. He sold silver from 1880-1938 period.

      Hard to tell without a picture of the marks, but I think your "A" is really a gothic "G" making this a mixed metal piece by Gorham. If so, "O" would be the date letter for 1882. The name Schafer is simply a monogram, and not a silversmith.
      Beautiful piece!

      Your new picture of the marks confirms it -Gorham beyond a doubt. That is an exceptional piece - I hope you cherish it!!
