Re: PN and right facing lion marks for ID please

Re: Marks on silver spectacles frames

Nice find, I love the old spectacles, especially folding arms, like you have. Thanks! They’re marked “Pebbles” on the right arm which, I believe, refers to their being magnifying reading glasses. Amazingly, they just happen to be the same strength as the modern reading glasses I wear so, sometimes,...

Re: Marks on silver spectacles frames

I have had a few pairs of Georgian silver spectacles, one with London assay office hallmarks, one London, but no assay office marks, one with Birmingham assay office marks. Nice find, I love the old spectacles, especially folding arms, like you have.

Re: London Hallmark Tea Set

What a lovely set, it is hallmarked for 1878 (the letter C in a shield), London and if that is SS for the makers mark, then I think it is by Goldsmiths Alliance Ltd (Samuel Smily), more info is available on Phil's site: http://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Makers/London-SS-SZ.html#SS If I am incorrect...

Russian marks? Fake or real?

Russian, Latvian etc marks always confuse me (a bit of a minefield), so I am asking here for clarification as to whether these are Russian marks, fake or real, as I have no idea, sorry. Would be nice to label this correctly in my spoon collection. They are on the side of a spoon handle https://www.9...

Re: Salt spoon, possible duty dodger - WE makers mark

I already checked through Phil's site, but with too many similar WE marks, it is not possible to determine who the maker was so far.

Thanks for your reply, I will have another look around on the web when I get more time later today.

Salt spoon, possible duty dodger - WE makers mark

Found this spoon today whilst walking the dog. It is a fiddle and thread salt spoon, with only WE on the back of the handle, I am wondering if this might be a duty dodger and if so, who is the maker? Thanks in advance https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg
