Hi Jim You are indeed correct with the maker, Emmanuel Levy - EL. The fork was assayed at Exeter 1816-1817. Between the maker's (rather, the sponsor's mark) and the Lion Passant you can see the remnants of the duty mark. I am not sure what the fork is used for, but potatoes would make sense. Someone...

My apologies, I should have said Joseph Gloster. Mike thanks for correcting it. My dyslexia come out occasionally!

Hi Brad The date of the safe box is 1906 assayed in Birmingham and made by Joseph Foster, I have several match safes made by Foster. Pieces assayed from 1784 to 1890 would show a duty mark which would be the head of the reigning monarch. So if your dates had been correct it would be the head of Quee...

Thank you for the input. I was not aware of the Plate Act and your comments make good sense.

I tried to get a clearer image of the makers mark. I believe you are correct, through the loupe it is clearly WI.

Thank you.

Maker and a strange mark

Hi I recently got this jug in a job-lot, it is London 1752-53. The maker's mark is only partially showing, any guesses to who it might be? The third photo is a mark at the bottom of one of the feet, IHR covering a star, could this be a journeyman's mark? http://d.imagehost.org/t/0947/PICT0001.jpg ht...

Age of Sweetbread Basket

I've bought this sweetbread basket which I believe is Dutch (see the two marks), it is 0.833 silver. There are no other marks on the piece. Would anyone be able to place an approximate date for the piece? http://c.imagehost.org/t/0752/PICT0096.jpg http://c.imagehost.org/t/0111/PICT0034.jpg http://c....

Buckler,

Thank you so much for the explanation. That makes a lot of sense.

I didn't realise that the registers were not complete.

I K on Loving Cup 1769/70 Perhaps JOHN KING

We have this very nice two-handled cup. The marks are for London 1769-70 and the maker is John King (Grimwade 1445-6). There is also a photo of a John King mark in Jackson (p. 213) for a tall coffee pot and dated 1769-70. http://aycu29.webshots.com/image/51268/2003280993055751298_th.jpg http://aycu4...
