Your tongs are not silver so the marks are not a hallmark. Although I don't recognise the maker from their initials (either A L, with the second L signifying London, or A L L). The BP mark shows that the tongs' composition is Britannia Plate, i.e. electroplated Britannia metal, the latter being a pewter-like white metal.

Thanks Phil,

This is probably why i struggled, I have some family heirlooms which I want to get checked out too as one has no makers marks but i'm sure they're some sort of silver but wondering who would be best to take them too to get checked out - i don't want to take them to a pawn shop but i don't know any other type of business that would do this?

Why not give us a try? Just remember to start a new topic for each item.

Hi,

To my knowledge this is a product of John Round & Sons of Sheffield.

The 'ALL' being a shorten part of their registered full trade name 'ALL ROUND THE WORLD'

Thank you Trev, but still Britannia plate / pewter and not silver right? I googled their hallmarks but couldn't find any similar to this.

Thank you for this, a nice find that!

Don't suppose you can date it from the hallmarks?

Not a clue I'm afraid. Hopefully another member can add something.
