You just missed one mark. The walking lion. I know that its common knowledge, but maybe your friend does not know.
The walking lion is british for sterling 925/1000 and called "lion passant"

Ok that a lot af silver smiths.
My interest in silver is primarily before 1900 - and even best before 1850.
But still its fun to discover and become vice.

Sugar sifter - that was the word I was looking for.

It is not sterling - Sterling is 925 and 3 towers is (at least) 830. So silver it is. Or 13 1/4 lod (lod is the old term used for centuries) 3 towers is used since 1608 and yours if from 1950 - you can see it from 50. 13 1/4 out of 16 - where 16 is 1000. SJ is the guardein. look here http://www.925-...

Silver mug

I have this piece for snaps. I soppose that it is from the 1700. No marks. The bottom has been fixed so a new bottom has been added on top of the old one. Doing so the mark has disappered.
