Apologies for the apparent duplicate post, I registered as a new user and didn’t realise I would only be able to add one image to my posts at first.
My father inherited a number of items from his grandparents, and we need some help identifying the origin, age, and possibly history of each item. Any help will be appreciated, thank you!
1. SERVING TRAY
My first post, Identification needed: serving tray, shows item 1 of this collection. Thanks to @silvermakersmarks for the help on this item already.
2. SERVING DISH WITH CERAMIC BOWL
This dish screws open and allows hot water to be poured into the silver receptacle at the bottom, to keep food warm. The ceramic looks to be hand-painted. Unfortunately, the only mark on the base is a number ‘2’
Goblet standing ±250mm tall, with a repeating pattern around the cup and base. The markings are in two separate rectangles, showing ‘WMF’ and ‘NS’. There are two other marks as well above and below this lettering.
4. SILVER KETTLE ON BURNER
Kettle with a stand, including a burner. The kettle can be tilted inside the stand, or removed from the burner completely.
5. SILVER BOX WITH AUTOMATIC DOUBLE-DOOR HANDLE
Silver box with a hinged handle mechanic, that opens doors on both sides as it is lifted. The box is held within a stand which seems to emulate branches or sticks. (Our grandmother used to hide Quality Street chocolates in here from the kids )
