Need some help identifying this 5 pc Silver Set from Towle - Pat. 1881 signed W. Arnold on every piece. The two smaller spoons indicate 8 oz, the three larger spoons have hallmarks which I cannot find anywhere on the web. I believe these were made at the Newbury, Mass. location by a gentlemen named W. Arnold. These are like no other Towle I've seen. Definitely very old and rare. Can anyone assist me with identifying these? Thanks!

    I have a sugar shell in an almost identical pattern.There are subtle variations, and what appears to be a monogram. The bowl is gold washed and has lovely engraving.
    However, I believe mine is plate as there is no hallmark. The other stampings are the same. Perhaps I shall add a subspeciality of bright cut to my sugar shell collection.
