By way of introduction; I am fairly new to collecting, starting only a couple of months ago. I have been reading and studying the topic for about a year. The more I read the more facinating and exciting the field becomes.
At the moment, I am buying items which are clearly hallmarked, nil repairs and attractive to the eye. Rarity and investment has not been a factor (as yet).
I have found that I am gravitating more towards the Georgian period and have purchased a number of nice items by Hester Bateman, Peter and Ann Bateman and David and Robert Hennell.
One of my early buys was an 8" sugar castor made in Edinburgh 1892 but in the Georgian style. It is clearly hallmarked but the maker is one which I am having difficulty in identifying.
The maker is J M T.
Any assistance in identifying this silversmith and any information on them would be greatly appreciated.
I am looking forward to being an active member of this forum.
