Hallmark identification. Help needed..!

Hello every one, i was hoping some one may be able to help identify a silver hallmark…? These are a pair of silver sugar tongs i purchased. i have spent hours on the net trying to find them when i came accross this site.

This does not look like a silver mark. I believe that it probably reads S&TM and this would most likely be an electroplater’s mark.


Hi Phil, thank you for taking the time to respond, it is appreciated. And yes, I do believe you are right. I have also so noticed a tiny bit of plate ware…! Thanks again.
