These two forks have got me puzzled , but I am still learning , I have now got all the books and recognising things slowly but struggling with these two … The forks look interesting though ? Anybody throw some ideas on them please ?
The larger plain one has marks ’ W H & S, b ?, p? , MP/B ’ , but on the front it has ’ CITY OF LONDON SS ’ , which is a ship that sank in 1881 with the loss of 41 lives .
The patterned one has ’ F N & S , ? , ? ,? , A ’ , and what looks like the letters ’ J C ’ on the front . I was going to sling them but decided to look more closely - you never know ?
I also have some plated spoons with the word ’ ORUBA ’ , and ’ W & H inside a triangular flag ’ , reference to another Ship I think ?
