Silver Sugar Tongs with Horse SC assay

Postby russell.shivas » Tue Jun 04, 2019 3:49 am

I have recently acquired these pretty sugar tongs. I can see clearly the image of Victoria, but my searches in relation to the assay stamp of the horse with initials SC, has sadly been in vain. Please can anyone help identify.

Many thanks

Russell

Hi Russell,

Not British, but Italian.

I'll move the topic to the 'Other Countries' forum and hopefully we'll get more information there.

Trev.

Hello
The turreted woman's head is the (non-obligatory) mark of the third fineness of silver (800/1000) in use from 1870 to 1935 in the kingdom of Italy.
The other mark is that of Sebastiano Cozzetti from Varese
