Hi and thank you for taking the time out in hopefully helping me out.Ive recently bought a house and inherited a few things.One of which is this strange tankard/vase/trophy Ive done a bit of research on the net and think that its electroplated but am not sure.
Any help would be much appreciated, I dont want to throw it out incase its worth anything
Yes, electroplate - A1 is often used on electroplate, supposedly to indicate quality, but it has no legal significance. I believe that the letter under W&H’s flag trademark is a date code, but I don’t have any reference which allows me to interpret it. Does anybody else out there?
In answer to the question about the date letter source. I am just in the latter stages of completing a small work about Walker and Hall. The main reason being to publish the date letter code system. I will post details of where it is available in the Books section of the Forum when it is complete.
Just a personal opinion, but I don’t think it would be worth spending much time and effort on it. However before you even consider restoration you should try giving it a polish to get some feel for how much, if any, plate loss there actually is.
