Help needed in on makers mark 1776 Ewer

Postby chriscollins1961 » Fri Mar 01, 2019 4:15 pm

Hi

I have recently acquired the below Ewer (London 1776) but am struggling to identify the makers mark. Unfortunately the first part of the mark is worn on both the body and not very well struck on the lid. (Photos of both marks below)
I've spent a number of hours going through makers marks and cannot find anything which matches up.

Any ideas or suggestions most gratefully received.

Hi and welcome to the forum. I suggest Walter Brind. Here is my exemplar of his mark:

and yours for comparison:

Hi Phil

Thanks very much for your helpful reply.

It’s an excellent match and looking at other work by Walter Brind of the same period tonight, the form of the ‘W’ matches perfectly.

Thanks again

Chris
