London Silversmith's Mark

Postby kevin32823 » Thu Jan 04, 2018 3:57 pm

I can't find any reference to the silversmith whose mark is on a fork. The fork is in the "King" pattern and is dinner size.It was made in London in 1896. The mark begins with a "J" and ends with "C". What I'm confused by is that in-between the two initials is a smaller mark that I cannot make out and is topped by a single dot. Any assistance is appreciated, Kevin

Hi,
The mark is not well struck but I`m sure it`s Carrington & Co (John Bodman Carrington).
Search elsewhere to confirm (the shape of the mark, two pellets, JBC).
Regards

Hi Kevin,

I agree with AG2012 and his attribution to Carrington & Co and I'd just like to point out that your pattern is actually Queens rather than Kings.
They are very similar but the main difference between the two is the shell on the front is convex on the Queens and concave on the Kings.

Cheers,
Steve
