FIGURAL AND LITERAL TRADE MARKS
ON AMERICAN SILVER
LETTERS: T - U - V - W - X - Y - Z


The trademark (or trade mark) is a distinctive sign or indicator used by an individual, business organization, or other legal entity to signify that the products or services, to consumers with which the trademark appears, originate from a unique source, and to distinguish its products or services from those of other entities.
In many cases the manufacturers of American electroplated or sterling silver did not use the firm name in their trade mark, preferring a figural or a graphic symbol, often accompanied by the initials of the firm (one or more).
This feature, while often obtaining a pleasing visual effect, makes difficult the identification of the manufacturer.
The objective of these pages is to offer a quick reference to the directory listing the manufacturers in alphabetic order.
