Hi everyone. I have a set of 12 spoons, which allegedly were brought back from the far east at the end of the 1st world war. Marked Hong Kong and 84 on bowl and handle.

Birmingham, I think 1895

I have a large silver hairbrush and I think the hallmarks are for birmingham 1895, however, not 100% sure as in the books, it shows that 1896-6 isn't closed at the top; what does everyone think. Appreciated as always. gary https://i.postimg.cc/T3bGWy7N/SAM-5057.jpg https://i.postim...

Appreciated as ...
