On the other hand the maker's mark on french silver must be by a law dating back to 1838, in a di...

Dear Patrick, Many thanks for your reply but I doulbt it could be the maker. Normally all these inkwells are dating from end of the XIXth century, beginning of the XX century, and this specific one looks very classical to me. I would see it more being produced on East Coast USA. I hope someone can c...

Dear Mike, Regarding the A1 it is clearly a reference to the quality of the plating. Regarding the date, I really cannot be specific at all as I could not find anything on the dates when GR COLLIS & CO started in operation as well as when Carrington took them over. It is very hard to say if it i...

Hello there, Normally if it is crystal of this age, it should be a little bit yellowish in colour as the content of tin was different than today which makes it very white.

I concur, it is a gorgeous piece
