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.

Re: Silver brooch

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.

There are no published references or lists for modern (since 1914) London sponsors' marks. However you may get a response from the London Assay Office if you contact them directly: https://www.assayofficelondon.co.uk/contact.

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.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

You are going to have to include a larger image of the hallmark - the one you have embedded in you query is far too small to see any detail.

Re: Identify Makers Mark & Year

JD over WD is, as you have identified, John & William Deakin, trading as James Deakin & Sons of Sheffield. I think that the date letter is actually P (on its side) for 1915. Chester date letters appear both sideways and the right way up for this letter cycle (1901-1925) but I have not been a...

I don't think it's the same mark - and the Edinburgh Incorporation of Goldsmiths don't show a matching mark.

No, we can't, although we normally guess that it's probably a pattern number or some other form of internal factory identification number, the significance of which has been lost and was probably not very important anyway.

Re: Very ornate teaspoon with unknown maker's mark

The marks are not maker's marks but British Design Registration marks. A key to reading them can be found here: https://www.925-1000.com/registry.html. So that means we can rule out silver as the material as there would be a British hallmark.

Re: British sterling?

These tea tongs look exactly as I would expect a pair of London tongs from before 1784 to look. It was normal for only the sterling lion passant and maker's marks to be used; after 1784 a duty mark would also be applied. SA is indeed Stephen Adams.

Re: Frustrated with identification

I can't help with the original manufacturer but the mark in your second image is a London import mark (upside down) with the date letter E for 1979. The CLd mark looks as if it has been applied by a different hand to the original "925" and manufacturer's mark so is most likely to be the ma...
