Help identify "1614" "E" and a "T" inside of a shield marks

Postby JLAWKC » Thu Feb 21, 2019 2:52 pm

I have come across a cut glass serving set that I would like to purchase. It has a number of marks, but I cannot identify with any confidence the items provenance. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

Just speculation on my part, but the 'T' mark may be the Greek letter 'tau', a date letter used by Walker & Hall to indicate the year 1902.

I have seen Walker & Hall items before that are just marked with a date letter.

Why thank you, Trev. Do you have any idea what the other marks indicate?

Upon closer inspection, it looks like it could be "H-4" next to the date mark and a small capital E etched in over the mark.

I don't think the scratched marks are of any consequence, just personal inventory marks or jewellers' stock marks.

I've always associated these scratched marks as pawnbrokers references !
