Re: BB&S * Mark on piece

I think that what you have there is HB&H - Harrison Brothers & Howson of Sheffield. There is what appears to be an identical mark here: https://www.925-1000.com/silverplate_H.html.

Re: Is this from Aberdeen

Yes, it's the same person. He is definitely known to have submitted items for assay in Edinburgh in 1839 and 1840, but these are the only 2 years for which Edinburgh made records of provincial goldsmiths submitting work.

Re: silver cup, partial maker's mark is EJ

311 is probably a workshop design/pattern number and the I may be a journeyman's mark; i.e. the private mark of the workman responsible for the item. Both ideas are guesses based on what we see on other silver.

Re: silver cup, partial maker's mark is EJ

Hi and welcome to the forum. London 1853 is correct although it could have been made in 1854 as London date letters changed at the end of May in the following year. The maker's mark is that of Edward & John Barnard: http://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Makers/London/EBJB-EdwardAndJohnBarnard-2.jpg...

Re: Makers marks

This is certainly the mark of William Theobalds. Note that, although the mark was registered in January 1834, the 1833 date letter "s" was still in use up to the end of May 1834 as that is when the London date letter changed until 1974.

Re: Halmarks on a spoon

I should also have answered your other query. English hallmarked silver is always (with some exceptions) sterling, i.e. .925 standard. Exceptions are that the standard was raised between 1697 and 1720 to Britannia standard (approximately .958) and from 1975 when the UK became a signatory to the Inte...

Re: Halmarks on a spoon

It's Sheffield 1966 (upper case Y). 1941 is a lower case y. The additional marks are a Dublin import mark for 1967. I am unable to identify the partial maker's mark - it is not one which I have seen before.

Re: Jewelry in gold

Your question is too general. Requirements vary throughout the world. Some countries require gold items to be hallmarked; other countries have no hallmarking system whatsoever. If you have a question about a specific item please post it with relevant pictures.

Re: Thomas Wallis II makers mark?

The lion passant seems to be of the pattern in use from 1739 until 1755. If so, this is too early for Thomas Wallis II, whose first mark was registered in 1778 and who didn't become free until 1779 (I don't know how that came about), and it may therefore be an unrecorded mark of Thomas Whipham, prob...

If you want to continue with your imgur pictures all you need to do, for a single picture, is to add ".jpg" to the address and then enclose the result in IMG tags. We could do it for you but if you do it yourself you will know how for another time: [img]https://imgur.com/rONkY9R.jpg[/img] ...

It's 1935 but I don't know the maker.

The Dublin Assay Office runs a hallmark identification service which can be accessed here. If you contact them and get an answer we would appreciate an update in this topic.

Re: British Hallmark Question - Sugar spoon

Your tongs are not silver so the marks are not a hallmark. Although I don't recognise the maker from their initials (either A L, with the second L signifying London, or A L L). The BP mark shows that the tongs' composition is Britannia Plate, i.e. electroplated Britannia metal, the latter being a pe...
