Hi there

I am thinking about buying this as my first antique however I have ALOT to learn about hallmarks. Searching the internet only confused matters so I am hoping some kind sole here could point me in the right direction. Also if possible a max price to pay for it?

Thanks in advance !!! Very Happy

Hi John,
The picture strongly suggest pewter to me. Probably, given the size, some kind of measure for spirits. I'm not familiar with pewter marks but COTTERELLS OLD PEWTER is a reference work which may help.

If this piece is silver it has marks which bear no similarity to any with which I'm familiar.

I hope this helps put you on the right track.
Tony

Hi Tony

Thanks alot for the information. I will look further into it. So interesting trying to find out about an item. I think I am going to like this antiques collecting. Im english but live in Norway so hoping I can either buy from the UK and sell here or vice versa.

Thanks again! Smile
