Gold Ring. London Newcastle Sheffield?

Hello, I just had possession, for a very short while, of a family ring on its way to the next generation. Evidence for dating this ring was not strong with me and I made some quick photos in the hope of help from the forum. I am sorry the photographic quality is not as good as I like to upload. Phot...

Re: International Silver Company subsidiary jug.

Thank you Traintime and Aguest for your quick replies and comments. With Traintime’s pictures I can see the “ knights helmet with plume over a shield “ that flipper in a sailboat is supposed to represent. Thank you for condensing a lot of information about “ISC” in one post. I am sure plenty more pe...

International Silver Company subsidiary jug.

Re: Made in England - Creamer - unknown marks

Hello I thought this image could be a useful addition to this post. Tsarbucks has uploaded a nice photo of the “Britanoid” trademark and “Unity Plate” used by Barker Brothers but below there is another trademark identifying some nickel silver "NS" spoons. https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg...

Re: Spoon maker with “rabbit” figural mark. Another Chenailler?

Thank you Blackstone and JayT for your insightful comments on my post a so very rapidly. It seems first that unfortunately for research, the spelling of both the Christian name and Surname, of this “BC” may cause problems for others in addition to me.

Spoon maker with “rabbit” figural mark. Another Chenailler?

Hello, I’ve had to come back to France as I am having a bit of trouble with rabbits and chickens. I recently bought a Harlequin “set” of French, probable grapefruit spoons. (second opinion if possible). Below is a composite photo of one of them and some larger images of the marks. The spoon is 13.5 ...

Re: Need help with AJD maker's mark

Thanks for your comments Peter. How clever were those mid 19th century Dutch Guild masters to stripe that “l” cartouche knowing that in 150 years a silly English man would not be able to tell the difference between an “l” and an “i”.

Hello, nothing very solid in the way of help, but if the pictorial part of the mark is a lighthouse could "Faro" be part of the name. I see there is an Italian company Faro Linea. I know for some of the Southern European countries "Faro" is lighthouse. I see from a post by Dognos...

Re: london made spoons, date identification

Hello I think we may require a referee for the maker. Although these are Newcastle spoons and very likely assayed 1805 as Steve says, I believe the maker’s mark cartouche is an ovaloid and not an oblong (as Kelty's is) and the maker is most likely “Ann Robertson” the widow of John Robertson and her ...

Hello, just noted this image on line. Seems very similar to the marks discussed in this topic. I know we are in the silverplate section but is that the definitive answer?

Hello, I must admit to you Phil I was very pleased to read your comment about the “spurious” 1804-20 duty marks. After looking at a large number of Newcastle marks over the past week, I had concluded the “Jackson’s” illustrations of the lobed duty mark may not have been correct. I suppose confirming...

Re: Newcastle Duty Mark Mystery

Hello, I am correcting myself. I just looked again at http://www.silvermakersmarks and now see that Newcastle seemed to change their duty mark from the “cusped” mark to a normal type head in the roundel from 1800. Does that mean that there are only up to 4 years when that “cusped” mark could be foun...
