Re: Help with marks please

I realise that the site isn't too keen on links, however I saw this with reference to this mark.
Scroll down to LC.

Apologies if this isn't 'de rigueur'

Re: Contemporary maker's mark

On trying to describe the purpose of this piece to others, I have come up against a barrier.
Does any one have any idea of its purpose? Does it have one? A modernistic chalice? Vase? 9 cms high x 7.5 cms square.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks
John

Shot in the dark, but does anyone know the maker of this modernistic piece please?
Have emailed Dublin assay office but with no reply as yet.

George Gray

Could this be an overstrike of P & A Bateman?
It's on the inner lid of the top.
Always supposing it is George Gray?
Thanks

Re: Please ID this hallmark on a spoon!

Looks like the early 19thC pewter mark for John Yates.

Would be grateful for maker's mark info please.
Although there isn't a town assay mark, I'm assuming it's a London one.
Thanks

Re: Help with Date & Item (SECOND ATTEMPT)

Casters* of that size and of that period would normally be used for spices, e.g. pepper/cinnamon/ground nutmeg etc., and would have been part of a set of casters leading up to the larger sugar caster. I would suggest that salt would only be served from glass lined or gilt silver bowl. Just an opinio...
