Art Deco French Silver Sugar Tongs - Maker Identification

Good evening, Please can someone advise the maker of these Art Deco French Silver tongs, the Geometric styling is very much of the 1920/1930's period. Maker "M R" and what looks like a strawberry in between: https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg Many...

Small Toddy Ladle - Merrill shops?

Apologies if this is in the wrong section. I have what I believe to be an piece of American silver (could it be Merrill Shops?), what I think may be a small hammered toddy ladle (measures approx 5 inches long including bowl). The bowl is just under two inches in diameter. http://i41.tinypic.com/2cqz...

Hi Mike and Phil,

I have taken another couple of photos of the marks:

I agree that the camera is playing havoc with getting an accurate shot of the pellet.

Hello Mike,

Many thanks for the reply, let me see if I can obtain a better photo of the maker's mark to see if I have been interpreting it incorrectly.

Chester Telescopic Pencil - Makers Mark identification

Hello, Please could someone advise the maker of my Telescopic Pencil. I believe it is hallmarked for 1887 (although the shape around the Lion did make me suspect it was earlier - but I don't think pencils of this style were made in the 1820's) http://i41.tinypic.com/s2xqms.jpg http://i41.tinypic.com...

Re: 1794 Sugar tongs - Solomon Hougham or John Lambe

Thanks Buckler, good point raised - admittedly I did not realise it was the maker or sponsor that struck their own mark - I learn something new. Therefore there could be any number of scenarios on how this came about, I wonder if SH sold stock to IL at any time, or even if IL made it initially but h...

Re: Help Identifying the hallmark on spectacles frame (GOLD?

Hello Tom,
It looks very similar to a mark I have on a pair of pince-nez Spectacles which are 10ct rolled (or plated) gold and of a similar vintage.

Re: London Gold Mark - identify maker - "W&A.M."

An update: A complete Faux pas on my behalf - I have mistaken the 1870 date letter where it is actually a lowercase "p" for 1930. I contacted the Goldsmiths Company in London and they were very helpful in pointing me in the direction of W&A Mussett who registered the mark in 1921. Woul...

R.P. springs to mind Robert Pringle, I know he had a prolific silversmith business in England but unsure if they went into the jewellery side of things, any chance of a photo?
