I am having some real trouble identifying the following marks on what appears to be an early 19th Century Irish or Colonial Silver Fish slicer.
At the top is an unidentified duty mark, underneath the letter Q, underneath that is Hibernia??? underneath that a Harp without a crown and then under that the makers mark CK.
My feeling from doing some research tells me it is Colonial silver possibly made by an irishman who wasn't too keen on the English Monarch and decided to drop the crown on the harp, or chinese export silver?
Any help is greatly appreciated!http://s984.photobucket.com/user/Justoneon/slideshow/colonial%20silver
