I have this lovely item and no idea where or when it’s from please help
Your bottle has a Birmingham sterling silver hallmark with the date letter “m” for the assay year 1886/87. It also has a partially worn maker’s mark which is recognisable as D&F for the Birmingham company Deakin & Francis.
My hero massive thanks for this it’s greatly appreciated
Does that also indicate as solid silver? Thanks again Andy
Sterling is 925/1000 purity. The hallmark guarantees this. “Solid silver” encompasses many purity levels from as little as 500/1000.
