Hallmark on brandywarmer

Hi,

My dad is trying to find out a bit more about a silver brandy warmer he has the hallmakr has H&H and a bird which looks like a dove, we cannot find any information on the dove any ideas?

If this is not enough to point us in the right direction then I could probably sort out a photo.

Thanks

Sounds like a silverplate mark used by Hukin & Heath of Birmingham England.

Thanks for the reply, that looks like the mark any idea of the year?

These are the only marks we can see on the item.

Jonathon Wilson Hukin and John Thomas Heath used that silverplate mark for decades. Very difficult to date silverplate pieces.

Believe Hukin & Heath was in business roughly from 1879 to 1953.
Some of their pieces were designed by Dr. Christopher Dresser (1834-1904).
