Pair of fork and spoon

Postby memur » Fri Oct 20, 2017 4:45 am

Hello!
I hope for your help, as I have not found any information on these subjects.
Fork and spoon from Collins brothers, Johannesburg.

The seller announces items as manufactured in Birmingham, but the set of hallmarks does not match,
and for this firm in South Africa, information is very small. I could not find any images of their hallmarks.
I would be grateful for the help.

Hi ~ welcome to the forums.

Please see British import marks here: http://www.925-1000.com/importmarks.html Can't quite make out the date letter, perhaps 1905/06? The pattern is Gorham's 'Strasbourg', introduced in 1897.

The date letter is "f" for the assay year 1905/06.
