Cutlery "Fish knives and forks with server"


#1

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 silver-collector.com.

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
Daniel

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.

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