Can you help with these marks on a silver cane?

My husband has just bought a lovely walking cane with a silver top. We’ve looked at lists of marks but can’t find these. Could anyone tell me something about it?

The four marks are, from left to right:

  • maker’s mark: I can’t work out what this is so can’t name the maker
  • date letter: a for 1916
  • lion passant: sterling silver
  • leopard’s head uncrowned: assay mark for London

Thank you so much, I really appreciate you taking the time to help

Any images

Not apart from the one in the first post. I could take some more if it would help?

Hi Dawn
I think ‘Michael’ is rather confused. Go with SSM’s initial answer, with which i totally agree.

SMM even :slight_smile:
