Hi Steve, thanks for joining us on silver-collector.com

The mark is an old Victorian silverplate mark, for John Sherwood & Sons. Sherwood & Sons were based in Birmingham, and their mark was used from 1858-1896.

Best regards
Daniel

Hi Daniel.
Thank you for the information, I thought the crown mark reffered to sheffield, just shows how easy it is to make a mistake.

Many Thanks Steve.......
