i have acquired a knife and fork set but have no idea what the marks mean. i take it the (D&A) means DANIEL & ARTER Birmingham?? but im at a loss with the rest of the marks… is it even made of silver? any help much appreciated [/img] iv attached the hallmarks hope some one can help
It seems you have the same image as on this site silvercollection.it/electrop … .html#ART1
Which may answer some of your questions.
However, indeed Daniel & Arter. The ‘E P’ in gothic form stand for ElecroPlate, The ‘A1’ in your case would be, I think, the grade of silver application. The cross hatched circle would be one of their trade marks, and the Rd number would be a design number.
