Thought this was a very interesting item. It's made of sterling silver. Can anyone make out the silversmith?

It sold for $535.95 on the bay recently:

    I love all things about the Columbian Exhibition. And reading historical books.

    One of my favorites this year was The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. I don't know why it took 13 years to get around to it. Astounding. Read it...you won't be disappointed.

    Interesting.. the initials 'appear' to be O R... with a design in between... Purely a guess.... Cheers, RickO

    Interestingly, someone just gave me that book. I've been buying hundreds of expo items from an estate and the executrix gave me the book and told me I should read it.
