Thanks in advance for any help in identifying this item or it’s hallmarks. We purchased this item at an estate auction. It is a scalloped edge glass bowl in a very intricately embossed sterling pedestal stand. To our mostly untrained eye the glass bowl does not look as old as the sterling stand but it is a perfect fit.
More importantly we are trying to figure out the hallmarks. From my research I believe the first is the Lion Passant Guardant which tells me the piece is Sterling and that is British. The middle hallmark looks like a crowned Leopard which I believe is the city mark for London pre 1822. I’m guessing the third mark is the makers mark which looks more like a pictogram than a set of initials but I really can’t tell what it is a picture of. There does not appear to be a date mark which is what really has us confused. There are two small indentations to the right of the makers mark which are in the photo but barely visible. I think these are just indentations but I guess it could be possible that it is the date stamp which did not make a clear impression.
We would certainly appreciate any information or ideas.
