I have what the auction described as a Barbour Silver Co. Dutch Scene Embossed Silver Plate Tea Service that I am completely unable to authenticate or find online. Pics included. Hallmark on the tea pot, creamer, and sugar appear Barbour and are stamped 3150. I can’t find that pattern anywhere online to confirm. The tea caddy also has the same Barbour (?) Hallmark and bears the number 3238. The trivet has no Hallmark or number but seems to match the set. This is a real mystery. I can’t find it online and I’ve received no responses from Antiques Roadshow silver appraisers or the people at the Connecticut Historical Society. Barbour, later International Silver, was based in Hartford or Meriden, CT. Any help identifying is greatly appreciated!
