Can you Identify the Maker FB Please?

Postby emptguy » Wed Jun 09, 2021 6:00 am

Hello Forum.

I bought this pepperette yesterday which has Chester Marks for I believe 1876.

The maker's mark FB is clear and set inside what seems to be a quatrefoil shape. I can't seem to find who that might be though. Any ideas?

The grid on the main picture is cm's by the way so you can gauge the size.

Thank you in advance,

Hi Ian,

That is the mark of Alfred Wathew Butt (Francis Butt), 69, Eastgate Row South, Chester.

The date letter is 1883. The mark was entered with the Chester Assay Office on the 16th June 1880.

Thank you Trev. Of course the date letter is a 'u' not an 'n'. That makes sense.

I had seen the Francis Butt mark before though not in that form.

Thank you again for your help.
