Hi again... yes the style of the item suggests 1930's to 60s and the mark is for... shield on the right London.... silver standard mark the lion..... and the 'T' for the date as recorded in all marks books covering this era. Best wishes, Mike.

Have seen examples of William Edwards smallwork similar to this but I believe he did not register until 1800. worth checking. Best wishes, Mike.

Looking at the item, I would suggest it would be much nearer the turn of the century.. first 30 yrs of 20th c. Best wishes, Mike.

Can I suggest that this piece is too grand to be a jardiniere, rather that it is an ice bucket... and a 'high class' piece at that. Best wishes, Mike.

The lion is the standard silver mark for 925/1000 silver in the UK... the mark you refer to as the crest with lances coming out is actually the London mark... a leopards head... Best wishes, Mike.

I believe you will find the UK has never produced 14 carat gold items... more likely to be the US.

To clarify the position a little... it may be a plated or solid silver copy of that period..... we need to know if it is solid silver. Best wishes, Mike.

Suggest your first port of call is to get it tested to see if it is solid silver or silver plate... then maybe we will have something to work on. Best wishes, Mike.

To be frank, I have never heard of a potato fork other than the garden implement used to dig for potatoes. I believe you have an ordinary fork which has had the tines splayed for toast making over the fire as was done in Victorian times.... Best wishes, Mike.

The four letters on their own are EPNS which is for Electro plated nickel silver ... which establishes it as silver plated and not solid silver but I cannot make out the makers mark.

Not wishing to throw a cat amongst the pigeons but the mark as displayed looks like two 'B's and not PB..... albeit the first B is a little faint but certainly when examined carefully on your pic I see B and B.
Best wishes, Mike.
