Hello again! This is the second piece I acquired at the same time as the caddy spoon. It is a nice, elegant pair of sugar tongs, which again look and feel like solid silver, but the marks are a mystery.
They consist of a crown, a spiky maltese cross, a fleur-de-lys, a 6-legged insect-looking thing. The maker's mark is clearer on this one, definitely WP.
The two items I've posted have similar enough elements that they may be the same maker. I'm wondering whether they are bogus marks to look like sterling, whereas they are plate??
Please help as I'm very intrigued by this little mystery!!!
