Unknown silversmith Dalt, probably Italian, 1926

I have bought a famtstic enamel plaque set in a silver, maybe silverplated frame. Probably an exhibition or master apprentice piece and dated 1926. The silver (plate) is unmarked but carries the scratched signature “DALT”. The enamel plaque looks British but based on the (indecipherable) signature I...

Re: Unknown London sponsor mark

Sort of! The later Birmingham Guild mark is surrounded by a rectangle. It is readily confused with Bromsgrove Guild later Birmingham marks (c 1925) which look like this but slightly different type face.

Re: Unknown London sponsor mark

The London assay office have been kind enough to get back to me and this mark is for Birmingham Guild [of Handicraft] Ltd, registered in 1927.

Unknown London sponsor mark

Does anyone know this makers mark dating to London? Dated 1939. Images attached. BGLtd. I believe it may be a later Bromsgrove Guild mark. Their silver was typically assayed in Birmingham and they registered a mark like this in 1922 and 1925 in Birmingham but I wonder if they entered a mark for Lond...

Re: Albert Henry Jephcott

Courtesy of some offline help below is where I have got to. Albert Henry Jephcott of A H. Jephcott & Sons, 1 Regent Street Leicester. The AHJ mark was registered in 1937 and almost certainly relates to Albert Henry senior (1885-1955) – his same named son (1903-1976) is listed in 1939 as an “elec...

Re: Albert Henry Jephcott

Yes, thank you very much. Also a bronze piece in the 1906 Exhibition. I have a feeling the later silver which is occasionally seen, c 1945, may be made by the son, who is “invisible”. I also think there must be a photo of their shop somewhere!!!

Thank you. Unfortunately Goldsmiths Hall won’t repease sponsors names registered after 1974 due to the Data Protection Act. (Or something similar).

Re: Unidentified Swedish mark

I will answer my own question - please comment. I think the crowned M is the “logo” of MGAB and probably indicates they had a Royal Warrant (or Swedish equivalent). The M in GMAB is very similar typeface to the Crowned M, and reminds me of the (Danish) Anton Michelsen logo when they gained their roy...

Unidentified Swedish mark

Hi I was hoping someone could help identify the top left hand assay mark of the M with crown in an oval? All the other marks are clear to me - this is from a small swedish quaich type bowl made in 1954 by MGAB, from Upsala. 800 standard. But what is the M mark!!? Thank you. Anthony https://i.ibb.co/...

Brilliant thank you very much - even if an unexpected and slightly disappointing outcome! Totally unlike their normal work, I wonder if it was for an exhibition. Regards. Anthony

London 1935 unclear mark

Hi, can anyone identify / guess at this slightly rubbed makers mark. It is on a very unusual 1935 London silver and enamel bowl. Thank you Anthony https://i.ibb.co/16fxrKn/C2-D5-D5-C4-D4-EC-4545-9900-FCCA46-B046-AB.jpg https://i.ibb.co/gFwnrK5/BFB7-CC42-4-BAF-42-E4-A4-BB-5337782081-BA.jpg

The mark is that of Arabella Stuart, registered in 1974 but I have been able to find nothing else about her.
