Hello to you all,
I'm extremely new to collecting silver,
This is my very first piece bought from an auction online. I really just liked the look of it.
Having trouble with markings, correct me if I'm wrong, far right Victorian, F is around 1881 and two circles with CB is Charles Boyton II. I'm unsure of the other two.
Any help would be appreciated. My 2nd piece I bought is a Stuart Devlin, One of the greatest and born in Australia, what a legend.

Certainly 1881 & Charles Boyton. The lion rampant is the standard sterling mark indicating silver purity (.925), and the leopard's head (city mark) indicates the item was assayed in London.
Regards
John
