From Silver Ephemera & Documentation

You will see that Starr & Marcus existed from 1862 to 1877, when it became Theodore B. Starr.

Starr & Marcus was an important jewelry firm, important enough to compete in the Bryant vase competition eventually won by Tiffany. The silver they sold, however, was usually produced by other firms; who knows who would have actually produced the vase if S&M had won!

At any rate, most Starr & Marcus marked pieces were made by either Gorham or John R. Wendt. Look for the Gorham trademark (Lion, Anchor, G) somewhere on your piece. If you find it, you'll know whose it is. If it says 925, or PATENT, or 925 PATENT, then it is likely a Wendt piece. Wendt didn't use their own trademark very often, but their pieces do often have a 925 or PATENT stamp. If you can describe the pattern, we might be able to nail down the name for you; most Wendt patterns have been identified.
