Googling also only shows both names together, so is this the same Dittrich, if so, was this pre or post Silbe...

Re: PN and right facing lion marks for ID please

Re: Marks on silver spectacles frames

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...
