Help... Can't find hallmarks pictured

Postby rrehnlund » Mon Jan 04, 2010 12:16 pm

I have searched many web sites, but can't locate hallmarks that match those on a watch I have. I assume it's British and would like to identify the city, date, and silversmith. Can anyone help?

Hi Bob,

Welcome to the Forum.

I read the hallmarks as London 1835. See: http://www.925-1000.com/dlLondon.html

The watchcase maker is likely to be Samuel Strahan who at this time was working out of 36, Whites Row, Spitalfields.

If you were confused by the lack of a point at the base of the dateletter surround, it is because, on smaller items of this period, a rounded base surround was used.
