Re: Unknown Irish mark?

This is indeed an Irish mark and you have gone a fair way towards an identification. However I have to make one correction: the date is actually 1834 (the duty mark is the head of William IV who reigned until 1837). RG is, as you suggest, Richard Garde, a Cork silversmith. The harp is the Irish mark...

It's electroplate. S G stands for Silver Guild. See http://www.925-1000.com/silverplate_S2.html.

Re: Help on marks for scalloped ladel?

Hi and welcome to the forum.

The mark which you have labelled "Maker's Mark? Who?" is the London date letter E for 1760 and GB is the maker's mark of George Baskerville.

Re: Can't Identify The Maker's Mark

I'm pretty sure that this is a pseudo-mark, not a London hallmark at all. I note your location is quoted as NYC so I think that you may be looking at a 19th century American silversmith. Any other opinions?

Re: Sheffield Sterling 1881 - Help with maker please!

Welcome to the forum. You are correct in thinking that this is a piece of imported silver hallmarked in Sheffield. However the date is 1906 not 1881. The sponsor's mark is S.B.L for Samuel Boyce Landeck (also known as Samuel Boaz Landeck), an importer of silver whose mark is often seen on Hanau silv...

Re: Missing Date Mark

This often happens, especially during the c1795-c1815 period and on smaller items, especially flatware. London, Exeter and Newcastle hallmarks all show this. It is suspected that it was an anti-fraud measure in that larger items would all have had a date letter and it was therefore obvious if a non-...

Re: Unknown Pocket Watch Hallmarks GD Silver

G.D are the initials of George Charles Dimier, the principal of Dimier Brothers, who were London-based watch importers during the first quarter of the 20th century. The mark after the .925 is a London Assay Office import mark in use from 1906 but I note that there is no date letter as I would have e...

MS is, as you conjecture, Mary Sumner. The constituent parts of the hallmark are: - Duty Mark: in the form of the head of George IV; indicates that the relevant tax has been paid on the item - Date Letter: N for the assay year 1808/09 - Crowned leopard's head: symbol of the London Assay Office (repl...

Re: MK (Michael Keating) Spoon with strange engraving? Help Identification

MK is indeed Michael Keating. Your spoon was assayed in Dublin in the assay year 1799/1800 and the constituent parts of the hallmark are: - MK: maker's mark - Hibernia: duty mark (used until 1807 when, with the introduction of the monarch's head duty mark, it became the Dublin town mark) - Crowned H...

Re: Pocket Watch Key - Scotland?

I agree that the stones look Scottish, but there were a few manufacturers of this kind of product who had Birmingham-registered marks. Known makers include James Fenton & Co and Adie & Lovekin.

Re: Lowercase h inside circle

The images were fine when I embedded them but it would appear that Google Drive image URLs (addresses) are dynamic rather than fixed so change for every session.

Re: I this mark Jersey or London?

This mark does not appear in Jackson's list of London marks and there does not seem to be any evidence of a London hallmark so I would be inclined to believe the Jersey attribution. I leave it to others to comment on the construction of the spoon, which seems to me to be somewhat unusual.
