Re: Picture to identify this 1811 silver spoon

Hello, TS, it is always better to "embed the image" as more people will see it. Not everybody is happy to look to another site to see an image. I have had a look though and I hope you have realised that your spoon is just silver plated and not readily datable as so much of European solid s...

Hello, I think there is a chance that you are going to be disappointed with with the outcome with your bit of cutlery and its marks. You have "Sheffield England" on the item meaning it is likely to have been made at the beginning of the 20th century. In fact there is a possibility of close...

Re: Cool Rat Tail Spoon - Clueless on mark!

Hello Inquisitive Collector, I think most collectors with an interest in silver plate would put your marks in with the "J.Gilberts" of Birmingham marks. The J.G mark being somewhat difficult to sort between John Gilbert and Joseph Gilbert. The "Gilbert" name is associated with a ...

Re: Silver Spirit Kettle: Maker?

Hello Revampvin, we have the Gothic EPNS lettering plus a Maltese cross but these were regularly used by companies up to and around the start of the 20th century.

There is always a problem when there is no indication of first names in the makers marks and particularly so if it is a “common” family name as in this case. I thought that this cou...
