Hallmark Help-Thank You!

Hi, Does anyone know the details of these two hallmarks? I appreciate everyone’s help on the previous Robert & Belk. I have two more which I can’t determine. I was able to sort out the others.



Thank you so much.

Your first image shows a Sheffield sterling silver hallmark for the assay year 1913/14 (date letter v) with the maker’s mark of Joseph Rodgers & Sons. The flower and cross are their trademark, inherited from precursor companies dating back to the 18th century.

The second mark is Dutch. The date letter m in that style is 1871. The Minerva head is the duty mark and the lion shows the silver standard by a number beneath it. In your picture the number is damaged but it is probably 2 for .833 silver. The last mark is the maker’s mark.

Phil, Thank you so much. Yes, another piece had the two much clearer. Do you know what company produced the dutch tea set? Thank you again, Janet

Sorry, no idea - I can’t even work out what the initials might be!

Are any of these any better? Thank you for all your help.






It was nice and clear before - I just couldn’t make sense of the mark. Anybody else want to have a go?
