Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

Great item! Not English, but Irish. This looks like the work of Henry Flavelle of Dublin. The marks shown would be those of the secondary set on the item, and luckily they show the distinctive Dublin 1830 Duty mark.

Please remember in future posts that you are far more likely to get a response if you embed your images, as very few people will click on thumbnails or links.
