Help identifying Georgian silver mark for Sterling Salts

Postby bobandcindy » Thu Sep 07, 2017 10:05 pm

I have a pair of what I believe to be Georgian period London hallmarked sterling silver master salts but have been unable to identify the silversmith. My best guess is "CP" or "LP" written in script but the mark is rubbed so it's tough to tell for sure. Thanks for any help you can provide.

These salts were assayed in London in the assay year 1741/42. The maker's mark is LP for Lewis Pantin I. His first recorded mark was entered in 1734 with this particular mark being entered in 1739. He is designated Lewis Pantin I because he had a son and a grandson both with the same name.
