Hi, I have been collecting old silver, mostly plated for a few years. Don’t know alot about it though. Found a helpful post on this site explaining Mappin and compy.
I have a mug/tankard marked Mappin & compy Sheffield, 71 & 73Cornhill city & 77 & 78 Oxford st, London.
I believe this means it is 1860 - 64. The only other marking is the numerals 1747 and a hallmark that could be a stylized ‘P’
I thought it was a date at first but obviously not. I would like to know more about it and whether it would be considered a collectors piece. (ie. worth anything at all?)
I know alot depends on condition, unfortunately I am unable to get a decent photo as I rely on a cheap webcamera, But any thoughts/info at all is appreciated…
Will post what i can picturewise
