Hello and greetings from the Russian sites,
Mind my asking but I'm not so familiar with English silver but more with Russian silver. However, I recently came across this jewellery box (?) Its diameter is 75 mm. It seems to carry Chester's town mark and made by C.C. To my understanding that is Colen Hewer Cheshire in Birmingham even if the box is assayed in Chester. C.C registered in Chester in 28.11.1894 but again in 3.7.1904 and 9.12.1907. All the registered marks look very similar, so why register three times? You can see the marks on the rim in the middle of the box photo. Anyway, what puzzles me is the year mark. What year is it supposed to be this M in script? I have my thoughts but kindly tell me yours. Thank you in advance.
I'm lost in the jungle of silver marks :-)
