Help to identify Makers mark

Postby Dion » Fri Dec 09, 2016 4:00 pm

Good day all, I'm new to the forum and excited to be here. Thank you guy's for an excellent platform for questions and help.
I need help to identify a maker please. I'm no expert at all but so far I think I have identified the Hallmarks correctly, just not able to find the maker.
So far what I have is England, Sheffield, 1779 and the maker is MF over RS (MFRS).
Can someone please help identify the maker?
Thank you all in advance.
Sorry I can't figure out how to upload an image.

The maker's mark is MF over RC for Fenton, Creswick & Co (Matthew Fenton, Richard Creswick & William Watson), plate workers of Mulberry Street, Sheffield, first registered in 1773.
