Worth the Trip Posted 3. Before I stopped my truck, I saw what I wanted. The kids said I was crazy. There was a small version of a washstand sort-of-thing.

These “prestige” marks will name the manufacturer as well as the country and are normally very elaborate looking things with lions and crowns and coats of arms and so on – all intended to impress the brash Yankees.
Items without a mark were either domestic American production, non-prestige imported production, or imported production that wasn’t specifically produced for the American market. Lack of mark does NOT equate to lack of value or quality. In Congress passed protectionist tariff legislation – the McKinley Tariff.
