The case is made of Sterling silver (the lion).... in Chester UK (the shield mark) and in 1898-99 (the 'P' date mark). The workings may have been made anywhere(Possibly UK or Switzerland).... are there any markings which give a clue?
Best wishes, Mike.

Appears to be the 'A' for Sheffield 1975 but cannot make out the makers mark. Best wishes, Mike.

Information obtained from Jacksons Hallmarks.... 1971 not 1791... sorry. I am sure this will be corroborated by another person on here. 1791 mark would have the sovereigns head duty mark. the particular 'q' date mark shown is for 1971. Best wishes, Mike.

The 290w is hand engraved and could be a working jewellers repair mark. If it is only on the one piece then this is likely... if it is on them all.. I have no idea. Best wishes, Mike.

It must of course be remembered that a lot of "One Off" patterns were coined at this stage in spoon history and many were never registered so short of finding a match.... I guess you could call it whatever you like.....
'Diball' might be a good name...
Best wishes, Mike.

Looking at the items in the background I would imagine it is 8-10 inches long which would make it rather a breadbasket than a bon-bon dish Miles, what do you think?

I have seen the 'Four Seasons' figures in silver/porcelain/pottery etc.... and this surely looks like one of them... I wonder if she was part of a set of desk implements? What do you think?

I have just realised that my comment perhaps made your silver sound less than what it is.. it is a lovely piece.

These wares are quite common... Tea and coffee sets made by them were quite plentiful and good quality.

Can I suggest you take a look at this:-[url]http://www.silvercollection.it/englishsilvermarksXW3.html
It suggests that William Bayley and William Bennett are both attributed to the same mark[/url]

The hallmark is for London 1917/18 and the W.B maKERS MARK has been attributed to William Bruford although without certainty As to whether he is the correct maker.

The nearest mark I can think of is John James Whiting of London.... close but perhaps not close enough.... see what you think.

The first person who came to mind for the period was Richard Evans.... but I (sorry, from memory) believe he had only one dot between his initials...
Sorry not to be of more help Miles.

There is no doubt that it is Hester Bateman..... the only mark that may really be confused with it is Henry Baileys... but there are distinct differences. Your hat can protect your head for a bit longer!!!!!
