The maker’s mark is actually JD&S - a very distinctive mark of James Dixon & Sons of Sheffield. The hallmark shows that it is sterling silver assayed in Sheffield during the assay year 1911/12 - if the date letter is “t”. However, to me it looks more like an “i” which would move the year to 1901/02.
