The maker will be WE as there are no known VE makers. Unfortunately there are 3 apparently identical WE marks to choose from:
- William Eaton, registered as a plateworker in 1813, died 1845, but mainly known for flatware
- William Edwards, registered as a smallworker 1800 & 1809; later marks with pellet between letters registered 1823 onwards
- William Ellerby, registered as a smallworker 1804, died 1826; but probably using a different mark in 1814 (pellet between letters in an oval punch)
The balance of probablities seems to favour William Edwards as the maker.
