Unidentified maker "T.M", Birmingham 1826

Postby jamesinealing » Sat Dec 17, 2016 10:23 am

Hi, I have a silver caddy spoon that is clearly Birmingham, 1826, but I am trying to get confirmation of the maker. I had thought it could be Thomas Morley - this forum post state that his stamp "had a pellet between the T and M" which seems to match well, but the Grimwade biography update here suggests he had died by 1794.

Any help identifying the maker would be very much appreciated. Thanks

Hi,

I think it's the mark of Thomas Millington.

Thanks for such a quick reply. I just checked a few other items from Thomas Millington online and it certainly looks a good match. Oh well, that's my dad Thomas Morley's Christmas present out of the window.

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

I agree with Martin, Thomas Millington.

I've just added some details here: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=14729&p=136718#p136718

Great. Glad the images were of use. My main interest in silver is as used in photography, especially daguerreotypes, so I especially appreciate the existence of forums like this one when I have questions outside my own normal area of expertise.
