Re: Does anybody recognize this spoon mark?

Hello, just came upon this post. Can not tell exactly where this mark is on the bowl, but wondered if it was a pre manufactured fancy "blank field" for a local jeweller to inscribe a buyer's monogram. Surely that would give the opportunity of easy personalisation of a "stock" ite...

Re: Spoon German Ship Line

Re: England R&B mark

Thank you Mhmorningstar to show this both interesting looking knife and annoying set of gothic style maker’s marks. Is this a butter knife? Do the serrations go all the way along the edge of the blade and was this type of knife typical of any particular time period? Trev suggests a “marriage” of an ...

Re: Spoon England 1954 marks

Hello, I can possibly give you some pointers for this spoon, but I will need to ask you a question first. Is there a "crowsfoot" or "broad arrow" mark between the "K" number and the 1954? There is not a lot of contrast with the spoon. worktop and the flash. I believe th...

Re: Beehive maker’s mark? Rudge Retailer?

Hello again, I think I will stop buying old electroplate cutlery so I do not have to keep replying to my own posts. Researching an old meat cleaver turned up another Sheffield cutler using the “Beehive mark”. Picture below. https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jp...

Re: Gold Ring. London Newcastle Sheffield?

Thank you Dognose and Ag2012 for you quick if disappointing replys. I did see the possibility of “PLAT” but knew that it was not a plated ring. Platinum never entered my head. Most of the rings I have examined previously, though that is not many, had obvious makers marks on.
