I was given a Silver lamp which I am thinking was converted into a lamp, can someone give me information on the maker and the year, I believe it was made Sheffield in 1918 but I cant seem to find the exact makers mark

I have some flatware with similar shaped marks to yours. I have attributed mine to be of Barraclough & Sons (James Henry & Herbert Barraclough).
Our moderator may be able to confirm?

John

Yes, I think that John has got it right. The mark was originally JHB over HB. Zachariah Barraclough & Sons was a company based in Leeds.
