Hi everyone, I have a teapot and a milk jug that I was given from a great great aunt. I know that they were given to her by her aunt and they pre date 1950.

Teapot:
On the bottom has been printed
SHEFFIELD
PLATE
5
1640

and I presume the numbers are reorder numbers.

Milk jug:
No mark that I can discern other than a small G on the rim that touches the table.

Is anyone familiar with these marks and can tell me about the pieces or date them?

Kind regards,
Matt

From the style and the lettering I would suggest late 19th - mid 20th century. They are, of course, not silver and the manufacturers obviously decided not to put their name on it so, unless someone recognises the actual pattern, I think that may be as far as we can go.

I should also add that it's a coffee pot; tea pots are squatter and rounder.
