This maker is not identified by the Edinburgh Incorporation of Goldsmiths. I have seen the mark with hallmark dates of 1840 to 1854. The Incorporation shows what appears to be an identical TC mark as "unidentified" with a date of 1874; their illustration is taken from a Registration Plate in use from 1864 to 1889.
