i hope it is not being gratuitous but i have two (more) items with marks i need help with.
The first is a goblet which i previously questioned about on this forum but did not have pics for. It was fairly beaten up and i wondered if i should purchase it but decided to take a chance. If i recall correctly, it was reported to have been early French, but i can find no reference to these marks. On the rim is an oak leaf with a letter x and on the base is stamped what appears to read: “I G VINE HV T”.
The other is a spoon i have had for some time which i believe may have come with a Georgian tea caddy, but i am not sure. It may be common knowledge but i have not seen what i am assuming is the Birmingham town mark and duty mark accompany a star and find nothing for a maker “M.P” (except perhaps Michael Plummer from London).
Any assistance anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated!
