I expect my answer may appear a little strange at first, but I suspect that may be one of the marks of Tackhing of Hong Kong. I've seen a few pieces of Chinese export silver and other oriental silver, including Burmese, with additional Glasgow marks previously, but had not mentally retained the sponser's name, but after having seen your buckle I suspect that George Edward was the probable importer of these pieces
George Edward was a great enthusiast of Far Eastern art, and had section of his Glasgow shop devoted to it. He was also connected with the Japanese art section at the International Exhibition at Glasgow in 1901.
An unlikely maker perhaps, for an item retailed through a Glasgow jewellers.
