Help with marking

I have a tea/coffee set I would like to know more about

You’ve got a bit of a mixture there.

W&H is Walker & Hall, a Sheffield company and the hallmark is Sheffield 1895/96 (date letter “c”).

The mark with the large B in a shield is Walter & John Barnard, London gold & silversmiths. This hallmark is a London one with the date letter O for 1889/90.

The next one is the mark of William Hutton & Sons Ltd, a Sheffield company, although this hallmark is London 1900/01.

The final mark is, as it says, Elkington & Co. This has no dating information.


Thank you for the help. Did seam odd that it was different hallmarks on a set that was give to us as a trophy from the New York Racing Association and the Phipps family.

I also have a platter that I would like to know a little more about.
