Connie, don't feel bad. I almost missed it in McCain as well. Third cup of coffee helped.
Frank, I don't know much about Silver or silverplate, but I think the 1901 would have been the year the pattern of this holder was introduced. We find silverplate flatware marked 1847 Rogers 1901 or 1904 and then the pattern name, such as Avon. Its my understanding that the 1901 or 1904 is when that particular pattern was introduced and not the actual year of manufacture. Could be wrong on this of course, but glass is my thing. It all gets rather confusing. Terry
