This looks like an electrotype to me. This was a method of copying an original piece by taking a mould and building a replica by electro-deposition. Elkington were the masters of the art, but other companies such as Mappin & Webb and Walker and Hall also produced pieces in this way. Their main s...

I have always assigned the EV mark to Viners. The mark on the far right of this set of marks is the commemorative mark for the silver jubillee of King George V and Queen Mary. As this was the first time a mark was struck for purely commemorative reasons it does add a little to its interest to collec...

This is a bit of an anomaly. As Pat correctly says, the flag logo along with “Walker & Hall, Sheffield” was struck on Walker and Hall pieces between 1861 and 1890. However, the “G” in the shield below the flag is the date letter for 1956, at which time the words “Made in England should appear be...

Fiddle Dessert Spoon

I have had this fiddle dessert spoon for years, but it has defied all attempts at identification. It is in a standard English style fiddle pattern and of a good gauge. It is marked on the reverse of the shaft with AD beneath a sunrise and a pellet below in an oval shield. Any help with this long sta...

Thanks Pat. You have solved a long standing mystery. I suspected that it might be Canadian, as that is where there is a gap in my reference library.

Happy New Year

Mustard spoon

I cannot find the marks on this spoon in any of my references. It is an English style fiddle mustard spoon of a good gauge silver and gilded in the bowl. The pseudo marks suggest that it is colonial, but my searches have not turned up any answers. The maker’s mark is MSB in a cut cornered rectangle....

Tongs

You are most welcome. I should have added that the pattern was called "Henley"

silver tongs.

The mark is actually A.P. & Co for Arthur Price & Company. They were founded in 1902 by Arthur Price, as spoon makers in Birmingham. They are still in existence under various names, mainly Arthur Price of England. They still have factories in Birmingham and Sheffield, Although the company is...

Walker & Hall

I know this is a long time after your original question, but as I used to work for Walker & Hall I can add a little more information. The firm of Walker & Hall was established in 1845 and your heated trivet bears a date mark for 1908.

Walker & Hall

I know this is a long time after your original question, but as I used to work for Walker & Hall I can add a little more information. The “W” is a date letter, as suggested. Depending on the style of the letter is could either be 1915 ( a “wavy” W) or 1949 (a straight serifless W). The number 81...
