HP conjoined

Postby mk209 » Wed Aug 12, 2020 3:25 am

Just wanted to share this small 15cm dessert fork. It’s marked only with a lion passant and HP conjoined. Assayed before the date letter D started in York in 1779/80. One of the earliest forms of Hampston and Princes’ mark.

It seems from what I’ve seen the JHP conjoined is the first mark and this HP conjoined is second in the timeline.

Hi Matt,

Great find! Thanks for sharing this with us. The conjoined 'HP' mark was noted in use from 1776 to 1784 and seen with the incuse duty mark.
