S.U - on Bowl, 1780

A correspondent has sent me these pictures. I read the hallmark as London 1780. Any ideas or corrections?

Re: Old Teaspoon

I'm afraid this is another one of those pesky pseudo-marks, not London.

Re: New to the forum, please help with candlesticks hallmarks

Hi and welcome to the forum. These are not hallmarks but manufacturer's marks as your candlesticks are not silver. The gothic letters either side of the cross are EP and NS which stand for ElectroPlated Nickel Silver. I can't make out whether the stamp to the left contains initials. If so that would...

Re: Origin & information on hallmarks of a silver Dragon ring

HI and welcome to the forum.

It's best to have only one thread per question - then all answers and responses can be in the same place. I have therefore deleted your duplicate post. We can always move this one later if it seems appropriate.

Re: Not sure on this teaspoon

This is an American pseudo-mark and definitely not a British hallmark. Close examination of the "hallmark" will show inconsistencies with the real thing and the use of "PATENT" is a clear pointer to a US origin.

Re: IK - John Kavanagh? 1787 fork

In "Collecting Irish Silver" Douglas Bennett gives 3 possibilities for this mark: John Kavanagh (1783-1819), John Kelly (1780-94) or James Kennedy (1768-1803). As you can see from their working dates all 3 are candidates for your 1787 fork.

Re: English R.S & Co. Just after some general info

Hi and welcome to the forum, RS&Co is R Stevenson & Co of Sheffield. They are noted elsewhere as having been active 1894-1900. We normally expect that a single letter like the S indicates the home town of the manufacturer, inthis case Sheffield. 576 is most likely an internal factory identif...

Re: CPB makers mark (Charles Penny Brown?) but no city stamp - fake?

Hi Nvntivs and welcome to the forum. The date letter on your wallet is quite definitely "v" (1895), not "b" and I can assure you that the different punch shapes for the 2 dates really are significant. The other significant point is the lack of a duty mark which definitely rules o...

Re: Help on spoon mark ID

Perfectly correct with Solomon Hougham. The date is 1817. We can tell that it must be after 1784 because of the duty mark and that it's London by the shape of the lion passant punch. It was very common at that period (c1795-c1820) to omit the assay office mark on smaller items on silver, particularl...

Hi treasure777 and welcome to the forum.

In addition to including images could you also start a new topic in the "Scottish Hallmarks" section please; then we can deal with the mark in an appropriate part of the forums.

Re: SMM CO? Anyone know who it is? London import

As you have not had a reply it seems that nobody knows the answer. You will have to contact the London Assay Office directly to get a definitive result. Contact details are on their web site. If you follow this route and get an answer the forum would be grateful to know the result.
