Re: Novelty Silver Vesta Case Leather Boot

Your vesta has a Chester hallmark for 1894/95 with the maker's mark of Saunders & Shepherd, CS and FS being Cornelius Saunders & Frank Shepherd.

Re: Small Vest Case - Need Help With Makers Mark +Date

No problem with the date - it's 1900/01. But the sponsor's mark is a mess; it appears to be an overstrike where a replacement mark has been punched on top of the original. There is nothing suspicious about this and there are several possible explanations, the most likely being that a batch of vestas...

Re: Shell Bowl Onslow Soup Ladle

Definitely Atkin Brothers. Archer, Machin & Marsh (mark registered 1854) was a relatively short-lived partnership. They may still have been in existence in 1857 as Henry Archer is listed in a Trades Directory of that year as a [silver] chaser at the address quoted in the registration. There is c...

Re: Help needed to identify hallmarks

Despite what ESH implied to you this anchor (and therefore also the lion passant) are not official Birmingham hallmarks. In particular this exact punch shape is one which has never been used by the Birmingham Assay Office. I suspect that ESH or their supplier must have applied these stamps themselve...

The trade mark is very similar to a registered silver sponsor's mark which I have attributed to "possibly Nathan Bloom & Son":

Re: Help with some ring markings please

Until the 1816-1835 cycle 22carat gold and sterling silver shared the same set of hallmarks, including the lion passant [ref: Jackson].

Re: Duty Mark on spoon

And to answer your question about the direction in which George IV is facing: this follows the system used in coinage where succeeding monarchs are depicted facing the other way to their predecessors. Strangely none of the other assay offices followed this convention for the George IV duty mark and ...

Re: 1827 Silver Fork - William Chawner II or William Chinnery

Hi and welcome to the forum. A close-up of the maker's mark would have been useful. However I read it as "WC" and not "W.C" or "W·C". This, according to the standard reference work by Grimwade, makes it a Chawner mark. According to Grimwade Chawner first registered &quo...

Re: Is this Silver and is it from uk? :)

Hi and welcome to the forum. No, this is not a silver hallmark. It is an example of a "pseudo-mark" - one which looks like a real hallmark and used with that intention. We see examples of British-style pseudo-marks used on Chinese export ware and on early North American silver. It is very ...

Re: Is this silver?

I don't think it is Joseph Rogers - that doesn't look like an asterisk on the left and the letters appear to be (probably) H I or I H the other way up. I don't have any other suggestions though.
