Newcastle spoons 1874

Postby Granmaa » Sat Jun 02, 2007 6:20 pm

Who knows the maker of these 1874 Newcastle spoons?
John Walton is pictured in Jackson's, but his dates aren't given.

We have some dates for him here with a circa end date of 1856 ->
Newcastle Marks
Perhaps his son or grandson was still in the trade in 1874.

Margaret Gill in "...Newcastle Goldsmiths" gives John Walton as retired around 1867, but gives no other IW likely.
As the leopards head is uncrowned on these marks ( it was only uncrowned in Newcastle in the period 1846 to 1851) I suspect that the maker is John Walton, but the dateletter is a capital ("i" ), I and thus the date is actually 1847/48.
Accepting your presumed L as an I , then the date, maker, and Leopards head match nicely .

Yes, I think you're right buckler.
Thank you,
