many thanks,
Jake

The makers are Walker & Hall of Sheffield. The psi is a date code, but unfortunately these are undocumented so I cannot give you an exact age; it is probably before 1900 due to the use of the crown. One of our members is working on W&H date codes and may be able to help if he sees your post.
