If there are no other marks, I would suggest this is the silver plate mark of Albert Beardshaw & Co of Sheffield.

Hi John,
Thanks for the quick reply, after a bit of searching following your reply I agree …what do the digits mean ?




That would be their design/catalogue number for that item.
Is there a swing handle missing?

Yes it is broken off can be seen to the side in the first picture…Ah well probably of no great value but thanks for all the help…Its nice to know…Ill move on to my next couple of Items
