Re: Celtic Cross 825 Mark?

I'm in agreement with Steve here. A combination of lyre bird feathers and opals, plus the hallmarking, makes me think it is more likely than not that this piece is Australian.

Cheers

Re: Birmingham hallmark, but reversed Victoria duty stamp

Hi Jazzman111 - if it were a Birmingham piece, you would expect - in addition to the anchor - a date letter and the lion passant. Given that the date letter letter, the anchor and the lion passant were applied together by the Assay Office, the lack of a complete set is telling. Agree with Phil - the...

Re: H.M.S Rochester

The 1930's dating relates to the 4th ship of the Royal Navy with that designation. Some information, for the sake of completeness (credit to Wikipedia but the information has been abbreviated): [i]MS Rochester (L50) was a Shoreham-class sloop of the Royal Navy. She served during the Second World War...

Re: Serving tray with unknown trademark (coat of arms, laurel)

Somewhat of a coincidence, but this query was answered on another topic very recently.....in short, one of International Silver's many plate marks.

Re: Small wooden box with silver shield.

1902 for me - the top of the "c" is the key for me.

Not sure of the maker as the photo isn't that clear - is it H&F?

Re: Is this Reed & Barton with the 1935 "x" mark?

Yes, I'm in agreement with Cheryl here. If a piece could be stamped "Sterling", "925" etc it would be by the maker, in order to confirm/reinforce the quality and value - the lack of such a sterling silver or silver content mark usually means that it isn't sterling silver or doesn...

Hi Mark

I agree with that the mark appears Brazilian, and your dating appears accurate.

Can't add any more - no other marks?

Re: Small dish/bowl I inherited from my Gram

Maker is probably S M Levi Ltd (http://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Make ... SN.html#SM). That particular iteration of the maker was used 1932-1939, which is consistent with the date letter (being 1936 in my view).

Re: Russian Sterling Teapot

Thanks all - appreciate your input AG2012, Qrt.S, Goldstein and Dad.

This wonderful teapot is one of the main pieces in my collection. I really like the styling (Art Deco I believe). Now, I *think* it is Russian, but am happy to bow to the knowledge of the Russian specialists! I'd appreciate any information (maker, assay office etc). The silver mark looks like that u...

Hi Mick
Yes, it is sterling silver. Assayed/tested by the hallmarking office (Chester) - hence the lion hall mark (Lion Passant).
