Re: Help ID Ivory Handled Silver Fish Service

Hi and welcome to the forum. In fact this is English electroplate. The manufacturer's mark is AT&Co for Ainsworth, Taylor & Co of Birmingham. They were active under this name from 1878 and these pieces must date from before about 1895 or so when the use of a crown on electroplate was banned....

Re: unknown object; chester; ? date; what is it?

Yes it does. I can now see, looking at 200% magnification, that I was wrong about the date cycle. It now looks much more like "K" for 1893. In addition there is a definite edge to the first part of the maker's mark so, although it is still Saunders & Shepherd, it looks much more like t...

Re: unknown object; chester; ? date; what is it?

If it's not a match striker then I have no idea what it could be. The bottom stamp reads "Doulton Lambeth London". The Chester date letter is from the letter cycle 1926-1950 but I am having difficulty working out which one it is. It looks like a composite of "k", 1935, and "...

Re: Sterling Silver Urn 1771 AL?

Augustin Le Sage is the most likely candidate for this mark but there is no direct evidence as the register in which the mark would have been recorded (the 1758-1773 Largeworkers' Register) has been lost. However I have previously seen a 1767 piece with a mark attributed to him together with a plain...

Re: Please ID this Locket Hallmarks?

Probably on the back then. As the locket is originally 2 pieces of silver both parts need to be hallmarked - not necessarily a full hallmark on each part.

I suspect that you will find the rest of the hallmark under the inner section. Please feel free then to post your own pictures of it.

Re: 18th century or 19th?

1789 as Carpenter registered and used several other marks before 1809. Just to confirm this your watch case has a duty mark; duty on watch cases was abolished in 1798.

I have seen this mark before but have not identified it. The London Assay Office seems like the best place to find out.

Re: Help with makers mark

The lion passant here is of the form used on London marks between 1739 and 1755. I would attribute this mark as "probably William Dorrell". We know that Dorrell registered marks as a smallworker in 1736 and 1762. The second of these has a pellet between the letters as on this decanter labe...

It really isn't that difficult. Choose your pictures, upload them to a photo hosting site such as postimage and include the links in your post.

Re: Help Identifying Writing on silver 1889 cane

I think you may have omitted one of your original pictures as the first and last ones above are identical. The "J?A" mark I read as JEA. It seems pretty much identical to a maker's mark registered in London by James Ebenezer Allcock who was in business as a gold and silver mounter and is l...
