Yes, this is an electroplate mark of Elkington & Co. The V in the diamond is Elkington's date code for 1860.

Re: Please help me idtentify these two spoons

Hi and welcome to the forum. There is little doubt in my mind that this is a London hallmark and that the maker's initials are IS. I am having a little difficulty with the date letter but I suspect that it is most likely the d which was used from 6 June 1739 to 18 July 1739. My difficulty is in the ...

Re: silver plated bowl

Hi and welcome to the forum. The date letter table which you show is only valid for sterling items hallmarked at the London Assay Office so the date is not 1893. You have however correctly deduced that the S is a date letter. Unfortunately it is a private system developed by Mappin & Webb and on...

Re: paperweight with silver base

I have followed this up with some internet searches of my own and am now convinced that this is the mark of Sileda Ltd. I have found an internet auction of a scent bottle with overlaid silver. Not only did the silver have the same SL mark but included in the auction was the original box with insert ...

Re: Help identify modern silver object and maker CFH - London 1998

Hi OL and welcome to the forum I am pretty sure that this is, as Steve suggests, the mark of Charles Francis Hall. Although there is a fair time span between my last seen-on date and 1998 I have also seen his mark used on both Birmingham and Sheffield silver in 1996. From this I deduce that the time...

Re: Mark I.F (or I.E) on 1732 Mug

Hi and welcome to the forum. This is the mark of John Fossey, registered as a largeworker on 9 January 1733. The date letter R was in use from 29 May 1732 until 28 May 1733. John Fawdery II had a similar IF mark but with a small cross instead of the central pellet. This was registered in 1729. His f...

The pictures have been correctly embedded. Unfortunately, due to a Photobucket policy change, we are unable to view them. If Phate008 is still hoping for an answer he/she must either pay to upgrade their Photobucket account or re-host the pictures elsewhere; we like www.tinypic.com.

Re: Silver salver, unknown origin. What can you tell me about it?

Hi and welcome to the forum. The 2 marks at the left are the manufacturer's trade marks, not currently identified. Then P G S stands for Plated German Silver, so the salver is electroplated, not silver. German Silver was an alternative name for nickel silver, a white metal allow with, perversely, no...
