Re: Dawson (Birmingham) Ltd is who?

Thank you Trev and Phil for hunting out these extra fragments of information. We definitely know Dawsons were in Sheffield to make War Dept. cutlery during WW2.

Re: Beehive maker’s mark? Rudge Retailer?

Hello again, I think I will stop buying old electroplate cutlery so I do not have to keep replying to my own posts. Researching an old meat cleaver turned up another Sheffield cutler using the “Beehive mark”. Picture below. http://i68.tinypic.com/230akp.jpg Gregory Brothers were apparently very well...

Re: Gold Ring. London Newcastle Sheffield?

Thank you Dognose and Ag2012 for you quick if disappointing replys. I did see the possibility of “PLAT” but knew that it was not a plated ring. Platinum never entered my head. Most of the rings I have examined previously, though that is not many, had obvious makers marks on.

Re: Need help with AJD maker's mark

Thanks for your comments Peter. How clever were those mid 19th century Dutch Guild masters to stripe that “l” cartouche knowing that in 150 years a silly English man would not be able to tell the difference between an “l” and an “i”.
