My wife and I are complete novices regarding silver. Yesterday, we bought a pair of ‘silver’ candlesticks which we really like.
We would love to know more about them - including if they are really silver and any details we can find about their maker.
A search of the internet left me rather confused by the hall mark, but I did find one reference to TEW and the name Thomas Edward Whitehead :
silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Make … ham-T.html
However, the anchor seems to indicate Birmingham, but why is it at 45 degrees? If TEW is the maker, who or what is AEW?
Any help would be much appreciated.
The candlesticks weigh 494 grams and 502 grams and stand 185 mm high
If I can provide more/better information, please ask.
