Hi, I’m new to this list and hope someone can point me in the right direction please.
I have a letter opener made by Elkington & Co and I don’t know if it is silver or silver plate. It is stamped E & Co, theres also a shield and in it is a little crown with E & Co underneath.
There is also a diamond shape stamp and there is a C or possibly a G stamped inside the diamond.
Would anyone know when this was made and also where I can get Elkington date stamp information from. I’ve googled but can’t find anything.
There are no other marks on it so would I assume it is silver plate or could it be silver? I would have attached a photo but the camera has gone walkies…
Thanks in advance of any information
