1912 piece makers mark

Postby Lxmf » Sun Mar 08, 2015 1:56 pm

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could help me tracking the jewellers behind this piece?

I am not sure on the area but from England I assume.

Many thanks

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

If it is an English item, then there are quite a few possibilities. ''S & S" would be quite a common combination because it would include every "S" firm with the " & Son/s" in their title. However, the abbreviation "Stg" for "Sterling", is not that commonly used in England, but is indeed very popular in Australia. Stokes & Son of Melbourne is the stand out name. I'm not saying this is by them, or even that it is Australian, but offer it only as a route for further research.

Hopefully others may have their opinions.

Trev.

Hi Trev,

Thank you so much. The Australian connection is very interesting and I never would have worked that bit out. Up close I think it is B&S so will look for a jewellers in Austalia. I found it amongst my grandmother's belongings and very intrigued as it where it came from as I can't think of a family member it would have belonged to.

thank you again
