English Tea Set Hallmark

Postby lizlaughlin » Thu Jun 13, 2013 5:11 pm

I am hoping to find the manufacturer of my tea set. I could not get a good image of the set itself, but I found the same hallmark on a set of entree dishes online. Anyone know the manufacturer?

(admin edit - see Posting Requirements )

The hallmark is the last image in the set. Thanks!

A similar mark has been identified on another site as Abram Brooksbank & Co of Sheffield.

It could be them I suppose, the marks are very similar. However after looking into that company a bit it seems they most produced cutlery and knives. I haven't found any evidence that they produced tea sets or entree plates.

Hello I think I have some images (and an idea) to go with this post. First we have some other examples of the cannon associated with the electroplating company of Abram Brooksbank & Co.

Image

The label is on the box that contained some forks carrying the shown set of manufacturers marks. We have the “cannon” with the underwritten “Defiance” as described in the material posted by “Dragonflywink”. The finial mark shows the gothic style “ABS” is as found on the web site referenced by “silvermakersmarks”. The “A” and “B” are self-explanatory and convention suggests the “S” indicates Sheffield as the home of the company. The forks are made in “BP”, Britannia Plate. “Lizlaughlin’s” item was likely newer than the forks as the “Made in England” is present.
Earlier on the post “Lizlaughlin” said she was worried that Abram Brooksbank & Co were only cutlery manufacturers but this below mark was present on a teapot.

Image

Now we come to my new if not very insightful idea. The address shown for Abram Brooksbank & Co, on the web and in the“ Dragonflywink” material is “Malinda Works” on Malinda Street. As we know, a common occurrence with these electroplating companies is the name of the “Works” becoming the trademark or the “Trademark” becoming the works name. I wonder who would make “Malinda Silver”? Abram Brooksbank & Co perhaps?

Image

I think the “B & Co” in the photo is “Brooksbank & Co” and this mark is not currently shown in the usual reference sites. I believe the pictorial mark between the “Co” and the “S” is a rose and Sheffield is in the “white rose” English county.
“Buxton & Co” of Sheffield are referenced as having the “B&Co” mark. Buxton & Co were only active for less than 10 years in the 1860’s so it is possible items may have been miss attributed.
