Does anybody have any ideas about these silver hallmarks, any help would be very greatly appreciated. These items used to belong to my grandparents. Many thanks, Adam.
Neither of these is a silver hallmark - they are both electroplate manufacturer’s trade marks. The first is that of Atkin Brothers of Sheffield (hence the AB and the S) and the other one is Hukin & Heath of Birmingham. See English electroplate silver: marks and hallmarks of British silver plate: Aa-Az and English electroplate silver: marks and hallmarks of British silver plate: Hi-Hz.
Thank you Phil for the quick response, that info is extremely helpful and much appreciated! We are trying to fairly share out my grandma possessions within the family, so to know what they actually are is a big help.
Kind regards, Adam.
