Crescent brooch - ? missing agate - ??.H.L - STG SIL

This item needs repair but it has family history so I am hoping to get a wee bit more detail before trying to restore. I am assuming it is missing agate - it is tiny and clearly needs a good clean if nothing else. The pin also appears to be someone's handy work (not original) and the catch is gone. ...

Penannular Brooch - unable to decipher marks

Hi All - I need some help to work out where this penannular brooch may have come into our family. My mother is from Scotland and with several other items we have been able to work out the marks and potential era/original owner.

Re: Duchess Plate - is this a process or brand

Thanks for the reply - May be slightly older than I was thinking. Not convinced it isn’t a bent spoon rather than a loop spoon as such. Regards Grid

Duchess Plate - is this a process or brand

I have a spoon - not sure if it is a true loop spoon or just had handle bent as it doesn’t sit well. Stamped with Duchess Plate - what looks like EPNS in a shield. Does anyone know anything about what timeframe this is from - assume 20th century and is it a brand from an individual maker or a proces...

Re: Birmingham maker RR - 1929 (??)

Must mention this is my first post on the forum so apologies for the repeated entries. Thanks for the welcome Trev. If any of the above ‘RR’ names can be eliminated that would also be of great help as it just seems a rectangle and plain initials are reasonably common. Looking forward to hearing from...

Re: Birmingham maker RR - 1929 (??)

Sorry - just noticed I said Richard when I meant Robert Rutland. It is the Birmingham that is throwing me. Who knows the RR linked with Birmingham?

Re: Birmingham maker RR - 1929 (??)

Is this big enough to see - the RR is in a rectangle with no dots or dashes. Just the letters.

Birmingham maker RR - 1929 (??)

I am having trouble isolating the silversmith for a loop spoon and pusher. RR has reference to Richard Richardson - Richard Rew - Richard Rugg - Richard Rutland but I can't see if any of these had links to Birmingham. I can see RR in a rectangle - anchor (Birmingham) - lion (silver) - E (?1929).Is s...
