Queen Victoria Silver Mark Help Needed


#1

Hello,

I am trying to identify the background on a silver serving piece I inherited. An expert in Scottish silver told me it is not from Scotland - but could perhaps be from England or the U.S. I inherited the piece from an elderly aunt (born 1895) who collected antiques.

Below is a URL of pictures of the piece, which is hollow-ware. It has been packed up for many years so it needs polishing. The expert on Scottish silver said that it may be a Queen Victoria Jubilee piece.

Thank you in advance,
Julie T.

Hi Julie,
Is the mark you have photographed the only mark on the item? If so, then it is not English silver, as it is not hallmarked.

It may well be American but I cannot confirm this.

Regards
Daniel
