Hi again Nikki,
So, the salts look like they were made in the 50’s, which is when silversmiths started using copper as a base metal again rather than nickel, hence Old Sheffield reproduction, even though the process of making these items was completely different from the original way of making them (originally Old Sheffield plate was basically a heat fused copper sandwich with silver as the bread, in the 50’s they worked out a cheap way of electroplating copper).
The mustard pot with the JH & Co mark is made by Joseph Heming & Co (the JH & Co mark) in London in 1911 (the date letter q). Joseph Heming & Co began life as a retail shop in the 1890’s, registered their first hallmark in 1902, and in 1912 became Heming & Co. I believe they were in buisness until around 1980.
I’m afraid I just can’t read the marks on the mustard below this, can you describe them to me? is the letter r a capital or small? Is the R P mark on its own or is it R&P?
The candlesticks are lovely, I have seen them before, typically late Victorian in date. Yours appear to be made in Sheffield (the crown mark), but I cannot see the date letter or the first initial of the makers mark so at the moment can’t tell you anything else on these. The tusk is usually from a poor defenseless Boar…
The bottom image of the oblong mustard is hard to see also, but I believe it is made by Deakin & Francis, in Birmingham (the anchor) in 1901. Deakin and Francis registered their first mark in 1901, and I think were still making in the 50’s, but I may be wrong…
If you can describe the rest of the marks I will fill in the gaps.
