Re: London Date Letter For 1866

Hallmark charts can only ever be approximations to the real world. There would have been a number of date letter punches in use during an assay year with different sizes needed depending on the item being assayed. In addition some would have had to be replaced during the year because of wear and tea...

Re: Help with London hallmark please

Hi and welcome to the forum.

This is the mark of William Pimm, registered as a smallworker on 25 Sep 1860. The hallmark is also the 1860 assay year.

Re: London Hallmarks on a vinaigrette

That certainly looks like Birmingham 1836 and TS may very well be Thomas Shaw.

Re: Silver Collared Glasses - checking marks and date please

As there is no "tail" on the top left of the letter I am sure it's 1895.

Re: London Hallmarks on a vinaigrette

The date should be really easy to determine but your picture of the mark in the bottom of the case is not good enough to show whether the town mark is the crowned leopard's head which was in use in 1787 or the uncrowned leopard's head in use in 1827.

Re: Silver Collared Glasses - checking marks and date please

I think it's 1895 but a clearer picture would confirm it either way. As an illustration of the difference between 1895 (c) and 1909 (r): 1895 http://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Dates/Sheffield/1895.jpg 1909 http://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Dates/Sheffield/1909.jpg Phil

Re: Date and Makers Mark on Queen-Anne era silver porringer?

The maker of your porringer is Thomas Port who registered this mark on 3rd June 1713. I cannot work out what the date letter might be.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Your S&B mark appears to be in a shield. A similar mark in a shield has been identified on another site as that of Slack & Barlow of Sheffield.

Re: Can anyone determine the maker?

The date is either 1759 or 1769 - the difference between the 2 would be obvious if the worn part were clear. The maker's mark doesn't have any distinctive features so there is quite a wide choice; it could be BC for Benjamin Cartwright or Benjamin Cooper, PG for Philip Goddard, RC for Robin Albin Co...

Re: Sterling Hallmarked Souvenir Spoon?

Date letter G is 1912. The chart on this 925-1000 site has a spurious extra letter in the previous cycle - the 'u' at 1901 should be 'v' so all succeeding letters are one year out. JWK is J W Kirwan & Co, a Birmingham company. This implies that that the spoon was specially made for the Scottish ...

Re: Roberts & Belk Silver Plate Marks

R&B is for Roberts & Belk and the gothic / Old English letters are EP for electroplate. However the S is normally thought to be for Sheffield. The fleur-de-lis is part of R&B's trade-marking system, as is the oil lamp. The number 1386 is indeed some sort of factory identification number....
