The 1762 date mark is a definite, however, the makers mark would appear to be the second upper case mark of Ebeneezer Coker, who was a prolific salver, candlestick and spoon maker at that time. It would also appear to concur with his particular handiwork. I am not however versed in Elizabeth Cookes ...

The 925 is the value in parts per thousand of the silver...which is the value of sterling and the squiggle mark is as you say for David Anderson 1888-1925. The piece looks like a 1920's one of which I had one similar some years ago.
Best wishes, Mike.

I may be able to give a definitive answer but am I missing something? I can only see a picture of the salver and not the mark. A picture of the mark would assist.. Best wishes, Mike.

Fraid I'm no expert on patterns but I believe this is known as a 'fiddle pattern'. No doubt someone will correct me if I am wrong.

Your brooch was made in Edinburgh in 1970-71 and I don't know who the maker is as my book does not list the modern makers. Best wishes, Mike.

I believe the cartouche shape is from the 60's and the spoon is probably around 1967...strange that the 'R' seems more like the nineties one. Best wishes, Mike.

Hi there.
What you appear to have is a Britannia silver item which has a date letter for London 1928-9..... Britannia silver is of higher grade than the usual sterling 925. As I remember it is around 958 parts pure but don't quote me on that.
Best wishes, Mike.
