This is a trade mark rather than a hallmark. It is on electroplate and is a mark of Watson & Gillot of Sheffield.

thanks, its a fish knife & fork set, not sure how old ? if its silver or just plated ?
how could i find out ?
thanks :slight_smile:

Watson & Gillot were active 1897 to c1940. That’s about the best I can do as far as a date is concerned. As I said before it is electroplated; had it been silver dating would have been simple.

thanks for your help
