In Hand Wrought Arts & Crafts Metalwork & Jewelry 1890-1940, 2013, author Darcy L. Evon notes that retailer B.S.C. was likely a Chicago-based company. She illustrates a bowl also marked BSC and with maker's mark WC and suggests that WC may possibly be attributed to William Codman, Jr., who was a designer for Spaulding & Co., Chicago, IL from 1895-1901 (pp. 144, 270).
