My second post as a new collector.
I have an electroplated Ink Stand or Desk Set which has some marks that I would like help with. The marks are,
J D & S which I believe are for James Dixon and Son.
E P a vertical stamp for Electro Plate.
The last mark is the one that has me stumped. It is on a shield and looks like abird with outstreached wings and small tail wings. A modern description would be a plan view of a fighter plane. Hope this makes sense.
Under this line of marks in heavy text is stamped M 8 80.
The washers under the wingnuts holding the handle in place are marked Sheffield.
Thanks in advance.
