I have a set of 6 miniature tea glasses with pewter holders. Each holder is marked with slightly different combinations of symbols some of which appear on more than one holder. I believe one of the markings on multiple holders is the lower case n from Sheffield 1905. Any assistance in identification would be appreciated.
There was no law demanding standardization of Hallmarks in the Hanau region of Germany during the late 19th century. ::: Sometimes the Hanau marks seem to deliberately mimic antique hallmarks from other countries, including France and Portugal, in an attempt to create a new object that looks like it was make 100 years prior. :::
