Additional Mark

A correspondent has sent me a query about a London 1803 basting spoon by Eley & Fearn. In addition to the normal hallmark there is another mark. Can anybody suggest its meaning?

Re: match safe

It's by Streeter & Co Ltd of New Bond Street, London, mark registered 27 July 1899 by Edwin W Streeter, managing director. See also https://www.925-1000.com/forum/viewtopi ... 38&t=52163.

Re: Help with marks

This appears to be the pre-1697 London maker's mark of Anthony Nelme. It was also used by his son Francis after the restoration of the sterling silver standard in 1723. The use of three maker's marks is often associated with "duty-dodging", i.e. avoidance of assaying and the associated pay...

Re: Silver Ring Makers Mark Help Please

Hi and welcome to the forum. The hallmark is London and you are correct with 1983. Unfortunately there are no published references for London marks of this period so the only way you will be able to find the name of AJS will be to contact the London Assay Office directly. Contact details are on thei...

Re: Do You Know this Maker?

Hi and welcome to the forum. Your grandmother's brooch was assayed in London in 1915/16. The maker's name has at least one letter missing from the front, probably due to a poor striking of the punch. The letters BRS are short for "Brothers" but without knowing the missing letter or letters...

Re: Marks on silver spectacles frames

Hi and welcome to the forum. Your spectacles are English and bear a London hallmark for 1829/30. Although there is no assay office mark (it would have been the uncrowned leopard's head), the other marks point to this location and date. I have not seen enough spectacle frames from this sort of time t...

Re: 17th/18th century tankard?

I think that you are right in thinking that the tankard dates from 1689. The maker's mark, a script D in a punch with a blip at the bottom and 2 "ears" at the top, has been noted by Jackson with dates ranging from 1685 to 1696, but without identification. I suspect that the repoussé work m...

Re: Help for yesr snd maker

That will be the assay office mark (uncrowned leopard's head for London) and the lion passant for sterling silver. When the image is inverted the assay office mark is much more obvious.

Re: Help for yesr snd maker

Assuming that it is in fact a London mark (without an image of the rest of the hallmark we cannot be certain) there is still a problem in that the date letter is indistinct - it may be lower case letter "l" for 1866. TJ would probably therefore be Thomas Johnson.

Re: Help identifying an old gold ring

HI and welcome to the forum. I assume from the way your query is worded that you are quoting a third party with the identification of the hallmark. You have been misinformed. The gold hallmarks for 1851 and 1927 are very similar and yours is 1927. The key to the identification is the maker's mark; I...

Re: Help in identifying marks on golden vesta case

The basic mark seems to be a 9-carat gold hallmark from Birmingham with the date letter "d" for 1903 as you have worked out. The maker's mark on the left is probably a worn-down mark of Horace Woodward & Co: http://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Makers/Shared/HW+CoLd-HoraceWoodwardAndCoLt...

Re: I cannot Figure the 3rd mark. Pleas help ID

Hi and welcome to the forum. There are no date marks here as the mark is the trademark of the US Gorham company (see https://www.925-1000.com/americansilver_G3.html) and not a Birmingham hallmark - the third mark is "G" for Gorham. I have therefore moved your post from its original positio...

Re: Help with date and maker

Your candlestick is more correctly called a chamberstick. It has a London hallmark for the assay year 1749/50 and the maker's mark of William Gould, a known maker of candlesticks and associated items.

Re: Elaborate SP Hollow-ware Hallmark Search

The manufacturer's mark is actually THB - Thomas Henry Blake - and S for Sheffield. Blake was active 1887 until 1911. I believe that the crown on plated wares was outlawed a little later than you quote, during the 1890s, so that dates your fish knives and forks to c1890.

Re: Tankard London 1767 W.T

It is likely that Tuite registered several marks. Only one, WT in an oval, is definitely his. Grimwade shows sketches of 4 other marks which he believes may be Tuite, one of which looks like the mark on your mug; all of the dates which Grimwade quotes coincide with the lost Largeworkers' Register.

Re: Tankard London 1767 W.T

I think that this is probably Grimwade's mark number 3901 in his "Unregistered Marks" section. This section includes marks which are not necessarily "unregistered", but which were most likely included in one of the lost / missing registers of Smallworkers (1739-1758) and Largewor...
