Silver Collared Glasses - checking marks and date please

Postby squeaking » Sun Jul 26, 2020 2:58 am

Hi there, I have a pair of sliver collared glasses and have researched but am unsure of the date - what I think I have (newbie) is
Maker Henry Atkin
.925 Sterling Sheffield Silver
Date 1853 ?? unsure

I think it's 1895 but a clearer picture would confirm it either way. As an illustration of the difference between 1895 (c) and 1909 (r):

Thank you for your replies - much appreciated I will try and get a better picture of the letter and have a closer look. the comparison photos are great thank you.
I did try and search the glass maker to no avail but did find the pattern but not a date for it.
I will have another look at it all

thanks for your time

As there is no "tail" on the top left of the letter I am sure it's 1895.
