Hello everybody
I have recently purchased what I believe is a silver plated milk jug, can anyone tell me what the marks are , top right a 15 with what looks like star or ships wheel, bottom right ABS I presume the makers mark (looks too modern to be Adel Bellamy Savory,
the 15 cl is obvious but the 10 underneath is a mystery to me. The symbol engraved on the front is I presume impossible to identify.
My GGG. Grandfather was Adel Savory so I am hoping it's by him Smile
Thanks

As there are no fineness marks we have to assume that your jug is silver plated and, regrettably, not by any member of the Savory family. I guess that it is probably a French manufacturer, certainly not one I recognise.

I am interested that you have named your ancestor as Adel Bellamy Savory. All of the references to him have his first name as Adey. Was it a slip of the finger on your part or is there perhaps an interesting story to the variation in name?

As a matter of interest Adeys' grandson was Joseph Savory Lord mayor of London.
