Berlin sifter.

This is a sugar sifter from Berlin. There are pricked initials on the back ‘H & CH 1819' It has a script letter’ A’ and what I presume is maker’s mark of ‘AW’. Can anyone help me with the identity of the maker please? Paul. http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/4b57308c-4dc4-40ac-9...

Large Plate Cilp.

This is a silver plated plated plate clip made by Walker & Hall in 1910. It is larger than the usual fish bone clip. It is actually pictured on a side plate, so it it not as large as it might seem, but it is still the biggest one I have seen. Would anyone have any ideas for it purpose. Dipping s...

Thanks Miles. I thought you might know. I can account for one tea spoon, so I will keep a look out for the other 29,999.

Merry Christmas.

Last Exeter Hallmark.

This is a nice example of a hallmark from the last year of the Exeter Assay Office. I don’t know how rare or common this mark is, but after looking out for one for years, I was really pleased to find this spoon. http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/Forum2/th_Ex2.jpg http://i1264.photo...

Sundial

Can anyone shed any light onto the origins of this unusual sundial. It is about 1" long (about the size of a watch fob). The cast doors open to reveal two armoured arms holding a sword as the gnomon of the dial. Paul. http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/th_dial1.jpg http://i1264...

Re: A flask

A simple matter of a Trade Mark. Many silversmiths used their trade mark in addition to the hallmark. James Dixon, Walker & Hall, John Round to name but a few.

Can anyone shed any light on this rather unusual variation on a fiddle pattern. It is by Richard Hodd & Sons, a company for which Christopher Dresser was a designer. I cannot find it in any books that I have, although it is similar to design devices which he used in textile designs. Paul. http:/...
