Hallmark’s identification

Hello, I’m new to this and was hoping that someone might know what the sequence of hallmarks mean on some old fiddle back forks? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

These are the marks of an electroplater so they are not, strictly speaking, hallmarks. I believe that this particular manufacturer has not been positively identified.


Thanks for the information Phil. The forks are also stamped Reno Silver. I couldn’t find anything similar on Google. Thanks for your time.

Reno Silver is the sort of exotic-sounding name that companies used to give to their proprietary base-metal alloys. These alloys contain no silver at all so I suspect that your forks are probably not even electroplated.

The cross and triangle symbol was one used by William Page & Co of Birmingham. They also used some fanciful names for their alloyed ware including Bolivian Silver, Roumanian Silver and Roman Silver.

Thank you for your reply. I was hoping that the forks were worth a few bob, but they obviously aren’t if there is no silver content. I appreciate you taking the time to respond. Best wishes,

Hi, I have a makers mark here and I’m wondering if anyone can help identify it?
