English kluk-kluk decanter with silver collar

Can anyone please identify the silversmith’s mark on this kluk-kluk decanter? I would love any info on who may have made the glass as well please…

TS is Thomas Stapleton who registered this mark on 19th September 1888, just a couple of years before the 1890/91 hallmark on your decanter. Stapleton was a long-established goldsmith and jeweller having been born about 1825. He had premises in Poland Street, Soho, London.

Thank you Phil for the detailed info. I can’t find any reference to him online, so he must be quite obscure!
