Sterling Silver Pipe Rack - Hallmark identification needed!


#1

As the title suggests the item I am attempting to find out about the hallmarks on a (believed to be) Sterling Silver gentlemens pipe rack. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi there, and thanks for joining us on silver-collector.com.

The hallmark is for London (the leopards head) in 1958 (the date letter C). The lion passant tells us that the piece is sterling silver, i.e 92.5% pure silver. The makers mark is a little obscured on the right hand side, can you tell me what the last letter is? I can read A E ?.

If you let me know that I will try and find a possible maker for you.

Best regards
Daniel

Thanks for your responce. The picture is about as good as it gets really, but I think it could be an ‘I’ - making it AEI?

Maybe ‘E’ - making it AEE?

I thought it might have been an I.

Unfortunately you have stumped me on this, I don’t know many modern silversmiths (modern for me being post 1900).

I will have a look in a few resource books and see what I can find.

Regards
Daniel
