I’m new to this forum so this is a first post for me.
My daughter has inherited a silver plate box (see photos) which we are trying to get some history on.
I believe the makers mark to be Elkington’s & Co, Birmingham, Date code R either 1877 or 1903 (both are letter R I believe) and my guess is this is a tea caddy.
There is also another engraved mark below the pattern No. that I would like to know the origins of. Would this be the artists mark or perhaps the sellers mark?
Have I got these details right? If anyone can shed some light on this piece for us, we would be very grateful.
Many thanks in advance.
