Re: Possible Scottish provincial marks

Cheers Trev, always good to get another's opinion when unsure. Just wasn't sure if the thistle punch was Edinburgh or not, as it was the standard thistle mark I have seen previously. I didn't find the maker mark looking under Edinburgh. I'll keep searching.

Thanks Phil, trust me to have the mark upside down. I knew I had seen the makers mark before, just couldn't remember!

Possible Scottish provincial marks

Not sure if these are Scottish provincial marks or not, I have searched, but have been unable to find a match on the maker anywhere, Makers mark is either MR or MP (more likely I think). The thistle mark is not typical of Edinburgh's thistle mark. The item is a spoon. http://i58.tinypic.com/149qu1k....

Yeah, it was a mistake, I think I had Birmingham on the brain for some reason at the time of posting it!

I am unsure of the makers mark C & A is for Corke & Apthorp or for Collett & Anderson

Item is a silver and tortoiseshell hatpin if that helps and is hallmarked for Birmingham, 1919

Re: Colonial hallmarks? R IK B on salt ladle

Forgot to add, I originally thought this might be Scottish provincial, but was unsure after I checked my little book that has minor guild marks in. Glad my initial thought were correct.

Re: Birmingham Hallmark

They are English hallmarked silver, but they look like a dressing table set, hairbrushes from the photos, if so, they are silver mounted.

Re: Need help in identifyingThis marks

There is probably more to the makers mark, but has probably worn away, sometimes using a loupe and getting the mark in the right light, you can sometimes see more.
