Cutlery "Fish knives and forks with server"

We have just purchased some of the above but we are having difficulty in finding the hall marks.

UD&S followed by a heralds trumpet with a flag hanging from the trumpet.

Can you help please?

Kind Regards Mark

Hi, thanks for joining us on

I should imagine that the marks are actually JD & S, for James Dixon & Sons. He started using the trumpet mark in 1879, so your fish knives and forks must have been after this.

Hope that helps a bit, if you can post a picture on the site I can confirm this and give you a better idea of the age by the style.

Best regards

Hello, I hope the attachment is clear enough?

The marks refer to 12 knives and forks with a large decorative Fish knife and Fork presumably for serving.

Hi Mark,
Unfortunately your attachment hasn’t worked!

Thats fine I can see that perfectly well. It is the mark for James Dixon & Sons, post 1879 as i thought.

Best regards

Thank you Daniel.

Can anyone identify the hallmarks from this set of 6 knives and forks?

Much appreciated if anyone has any suggestions.
