Silver hallmarks help

Hoping someone can decipher these hallmarks

The square box is sterling silver. It has a Chester hallmark with the date letter N for 1913/14 and the maker’s (or sponsor’s) mark C.C of Colen Hewer Cheshire, a Birmingham silversmith.

The round piece is electroplated, not silver, and has the manufacturer’s mark of Atkin Brothers of Sheffield. Dating this is not possible as we have no information about when this mark was in use. Atkin Brothers existed from 1853 to 1964.


Thank you very much!
