Help identifying Tea Set with SW inscription

Postby nic222k » Mon Aug 27, 2018 8:02 am

Hi,

Apologies if I'm completely off piste here but I'm a complete novice at silver identification - I'm a philatelist which is a different kettle of fish. I think I've got as far as identifying this set as being made in Birmingham around 1922-23...but I cannot find reference of the SW (or WS) inscription anywhere online. Can anyone help me?

(admin edit - see Posting Requirements )

Any and all help greatly appreciated.

All the best,

Nick

Hi,
The maker is T. Wilkinson & Sons.
Engraved initials ‚‚SW‚‚ belonged to the owner who had it engraved.
Even family crests and coat of arms are difficult to identify and let alone initials.In a word,an impossible task.

Thank you very much AG2012. I would have been digging for an age by the sound of it!
