Help with Makers mark and assay office

Postby nickcox » Mon Sep 05, 2016 2:56 pm

Hi,

Can anyone identify this makers mark and the assay office?

The item is a silver belt keeper and it is marked J.W & S then has the lion silver mark and the date letter of h. No assay office is mentioned and I am trying to identify who the maker was, the assay office and the year it was made.

Many thanks

Nick

The form of the lion passant and date letter punches mark this as being a Birmingham mark from 1907. The maker's mark is that of J Wise & Sons who registered this mark in 1904 as "military ornament makers". There is only a partial hallmark because the rest of it is on the other part of the belt.
