Is it even silver?

This is a hallmark on a very old looking candlestick. Hope someone can help. Going to try and clean it tomorrow and hoping I don’t mess it up.

This is an early silverplate mark of James Dixon & Sons of Sheffield. Your candlestick probably dates from the 3rd quarter of the 19th century. Clean it carefully with a good quality silver polish.


Thank you so much for your help. I love buying things at auctions and finding out about them. This candlestick seems to have had a rough life and not in good condition so I’m hoping with a little TLC it will look lovely again.
