Can anyone help with this hallmark, I cannot find reference to BHA in rectangle as maker or the town stamp. I think the letter g is london 1902. the only BHA i can find is Barnet Henry Adamson but he is a silverplate maker i think and this has the lion mark for silver.
please help i keep drawing blanks.

Barnett H Abrahams (not Adamson) was a manufacturing jeweller, retailer and importer. This is his mark, with a London 1902 hallmark as you suggest.

As I said, it's London - the normal uncrowned leopard's head.
