Dear All,

I have tried researching this for a while now and have come up with nothing, other than it's made in Edinburgh.

Does anyone know the maker, date and what this is used for?

Any help would be welcome

Regards

T.

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

I believe that is the mark of Shetland Silvercraft, see:

viewtopic.php?f=38&t=31210&p=122828&hilit=shetland#p122828

As can be seen, they were noted for their reproductions of Norse and Shetland antiquities.

The date of assay was 1965.

Dear Trev,

Thank you so much for responding so quickly.

I would have never have found that out.

Do you know what it is?

Best.

I'm really not sure, hopefully another member may know.

What is the size of the piece?
