These are the makers marks on a Napierian Coffee Maker that belongs to my parents. We have only recently found out that it is a Napierian Coffee Maker and made by Roberts & Belk, Sheffield. I’m totally stuck on the other marks.
The stand and egg shaped part are relatively light weight but the large cup is heavier by comparison. The marks appear on the bottom of the cup.
Silver is not my main interest but this Coffee Maker has fascinated me for years. We would love to know more about it.
Thanks in advance for any information provided.
The ‘s’ looks very similar to the 1910 date letter for Sheffield it maybe something significant happened to the company in that year and that was their way of commemorating/celebrating the event. Georeg V came to the throne but it’s unlikely to be that. The last device looks a bit crownish could be intended to indicate Sheffield.
Fun this speculation stuff isn’t it. It might not help but fun.
