Poole Silver Company located in Taunton, Massachusetts, the company began producing its wares in 1893, made a wide range of silver plate and sterling silverware. Dating Poole silver plate using the markings on the metal alone is impossible, due to there being no standard marking system used by the company. Determining an exact manufacture date is unlikely, but I can establish a general date based on the pattern, Lancaster Rose originated in 1947 and continued mfg by Poole until 1971 when they sold the company to Towle. Although Towle continued manufacturing this patter, any Lancaster Rose manufactured after 1971 would say Towle. This piece is most likely from 1969-1971, but could very well be much older.
