Re: Silver Shield

I agree with maker and date. Can't quite read the second word (lower left) - but seems to say "Champion" "?" "Shield". Perhaps for rugby or similar?

Re: Birmingham 18k gold ring

Agree with Steve - I was distracted by how it kind of looks like a "b", but the letter itself is quite distinctive in its way. 1895 it is.

Re: 1894 London Mark

It is, I think, one of the (various) marks used by William Hutton & Sons - http://www.925-1000.com/dlLondon16.html#M

Re: (IT) provincial (IT)

Probably now beyond my (non existent!) knowledge of US silver. Any attribution is reliant on Graham's book being correct (and it is not one I am familiar with, although that doesn't mean anything). I'd await a more expert opinion.

Re: [EC] Twice Provincial?

I think Chittenden is a fair attribution - there are enough similarities in the marks.

Wev has a mark attributed to Ten Eyck on his page here - http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.anc ... /44198.htm

FWIW, I think there are differences in the marks...

Re: Horace Woodward & Co Victorian Sterling Silver Mustard Pot 1890

Hi there

Do you have a better photo of the maker's mark? It looks more like the cartouche for Henry Wilkinson & Co (also, the Horace Woodward & Co maker's mark - as c.f. the Horace Woodward maker's mark - was only registered in 1893).

I'd agree on 1890 as the date.

Cheers

Re: Please Help! Maker?

Agreed - in my view, the mark shown in this thread (as the maker's mark) would be Jerome August Clark.

Re: is this Sheffield bowl solid sterling?

Yes, that is correct - your piece would be silverplate, not sterling silver. Bass were well known silverplate makers. In the US, if a piece was "Sterling" it was usually marked as such (to provide comfort to the purchaser etc). Also, the marks are wrong for British sterling silver - for on...

Re: E.S & Co.

Looks like Sheffield sterling silver to me. As far as I'm aware, ES & Co is currently not identified with certainty (one website has this mark identified as E SIlver & Co of Bond St London), but their work has been seen from 1930s - 1950s. Date wish, your piece was assayed in 1949. The other...

Unknown maker - Amercian (?) coin (?) silver (spoon)

Hi all I've got 6 of these spoons marked with "E.Simmons". Quality is a bit ordinary to be honest. Purchased in a "job lot" with a bunch of other spoons (all, with one exception, American silver, mostly coin). Any ideas who "E.Simmons" was? Suspect the retailer, but can...

Agreed. The "0" is a bit squashed in shape/size, but reads as 950 to me

Re: Help with hall marks please

Also, not sure about late 1800s (per your earlier message). You don't have a duty mark - and your date letter appears to be a capital (not lower case). Anyway, have a look at this great page run by forum member PhilO and see which of the date letters fit (http://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Dates/Bir...

Re: Help with hall marks please

Hi

The picture of the marks is pretty blurry / imprecise. I reckon it is either 1962 or 1987 - hard to tell the difference. It depends on the shape of the cartouche (shape of the punched mark).

Maker is unknown to me. Maybe someone else may know.
