Hello,

These hallmarks are from a beautiful rose gilted christening mug, from what I can find out online, I think thy might be from around 1798, however I can't identify the makers mark W.K. can anyone help? Am I completely wrong with the date?

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I make the date 1833/4 - so William IV, with the makers mark of William Knight II.
Regards
John

I agree with John. Notice how the Leopard's head is missing his crown? This means its after 1821/22.

Cheers,
Ben
