ID help? :)

Postby rustyspoon » Wed Mar 13, 2019 10:43 pm

Hello.

I have this nice necklace, not sure if it is Irish or Scottish and the marks are so tiny, can hardly make it out.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hi Mike,

That's the mark (MG) of Malcolm Swanney Gray, trading as Ortak Silvercraft of Kirkwall, Orkney.

The other marks (upside down in your image) are those of the Edinburgh Assay Office.
