Sterling Mark ??

New postby perby » Sat Mar 18, 2017 12:01 am

Hi all,
another odd mark from me, I have no idea where this is from or what, maybe one of our experts can help out here, it is on a bracelet.
Thanks in advance,
Bill

Bill,
Mark XIV is a designer of jewelry. So, this is like a Tiffany bracelet for example (not one though)...

Ray,
Thank you for the info. Is he a well known, popular designer, or not so much ?

Bill,
You can find Mark XIV jewelry on eBay by the way...

Thanks Ray appreciate it, I have found a couple of pieces upon looking on e-bay. Looks as if Mark XIV shut it down in the early 1960's after a law suit for copying someone else's designs,
I guess that says a lot.
