Mark I.F (or I.E) on 1732 Mug

Postby bsilverpe » Tue Dec 05, 2017 3:03 pm

I am trying to identify the maker on this George II mug. Although I am relatively new to this, I believe this is marked London 1732. There are apparently several silversmiths with marks IF or IE (the bottom right corner may not be fully formed) but none that I find registered in the right timeframe. I found one mug with the same mark attributed to John Fawdery, but when I look up his mark it was Fa, not IF. Did he use both?

Hi and welcome to the forum.

This is the mark of John Fossey, registered as a largeworker on 9 January 1733. The date letter R was in use from 29 May 1732 until 28 May 1733.

John Fawdery II had a similar IF mark but with a small cross instead of the central pellet. This was registered in 1729. His father, John Fawdery I, used the Fa mark on Britannia standard silver.
