Re: Please help me identify this F R necklace's hallmark.

The hallmark is Birmingham 1993. Unfortunately I cannot tell you who the maker / sponsor is as there are no published comprehensive references for modern sponsors' marks. You will have to ask the Birmingham Assay Office to find out the answer to your question. Contact details are on their web site ....

Re: Soup ladle marks

I think WB or WH look more likely. No standout candidates for these initials but William Barrett I, smallworker, entered 9/3/1771 and with a long career through to at least 1793, is a good possibility.

Re: spoons by Cruickshank and who else ?

I think it's most likely John Lambe. Turn the images the other way up....

And RC may well be Richard Crossley.

A correction: this mark is attributed to James (not John) Glen. I really should concentrate more.....

Re: Glasgow - GLN Maker, 1743-1752

The Edinburgh Incorporation of Goldsmiths also attributes this mark to John Glen but notes that it is much rarer than his more usually seen IG and JG marks.

Re: English Gold Hallmarks ? 1965

Gold hallmarks are square with cut corners and don't have the same shape as silver marks. The date letter definitely looks like 1965 with the maker's mark of Fattorini & Sons.

Re: Eardley Norton London Calendar Pocket Watch Identification

Strictly speaking it is only possible to date the case. This appears to have a London hallmark with (most likely) the date letter "u" for 1795/96. I have not been able to identify the case maker.

Re: Hanoverian Rattail Spoon Mark

It's Irish. EB is Edward Barrett who was active from the end of the seventeenth century until his death in 1722. The hallmark is Dublin and from the letter cycle 1720-1745. The date letter is a little problematical but is either C, E or G (gothic / Old English style) for, respectively, 1722, 1724 or...

Re: 925 Bracelet - Anyone recognise this mark? Any help appreciated :-)

No idea who AL is but the flower symbol is the York Rose mark of the Sheffield Assay Office. The bracelet is 21st century as there is no date mark; date marks are no longer compulsory, more's the pity!

Re: Hi, I need to identify the year of this piece

The date letter is "k" for 1925 and the eagle is the device or badge or armorial of the original owner.

Please re-read Trev's post and in particular the bits which say "Do not use Photobucket or Dropbox." and "Ensure your images are embedded. Do not post links." We have very good reasons for requesting this.

Definitely Robert Harper. He was the only London registrant of an RH mark in conjoined circles at this time.

Re: Birmingham Bracelet Help

It's a little earlier than you guessed. This date letter "i" is 1883. Although I recognise the maker's mark A-B as one I have seen before I have not been able to put a name to it.

Re: Robert Peppin? Date help please

The date letter is in the same orientation as the duty mark so it's "d": 1819.
