Re: Maker's Mark / General thoughts 1753 Snuffer Tray

Thank you all very much for the help. I went through the London makers’ mark list, and found about 4 candidates (John Harvey, James Morrison, John Payne, Thomas Whipham). Admittedly I have not yet compared against the Grimwade book. However, looking online at Simon Jouet marks, it seems like he is t...

Maker's Mark / General thoughts 1753 Snuffer Tray

I understand this to be a snuffer tray with a London assay mark and date letter of 1753. On the reverse underside I see what appear to be a sterling mark as well as a maker’s mark, which unfortunately, appears slightly damaged.

Sifter spoon with rampant beast and unclear maker mark

Re: 1754 London (?)

Phil,

Thanks for the welcome and help. Weight is about 56.5 grams and length across is about 3 and 1/8 inches. There are also engraved initials M.E.W.W. on the bottom. The bottom appears to be solid.

Many thanks.

Re: 1754 London (?)

Sorry All - hit send button before finishing post - I believe this dish has a London assay mark and 1754 date letter - unfortunately a bit worn. If these aspects are correct, I would be curious to know if anyone has a thought on the maker - first letter appears to perhaps be a stylized E? Many thank...
