unidentifiable Glasgow hallmark

Hi, I’ve had these tongs for some time and I’ve had no success identifying the hallmark. The tongs are quintessentially Scottish with a date mark for 1846. The maker is M.T who I can’t find anywhere. Maybe a provincial maker who assayed his work in Glasgow. Can anyone help with this? Thanks Gerry,

MT is not listed by the Incorporation of Goldsmiths of the City of Edinburgh who have a database of Scottish goldsmiths and silversmiths. I suggest you contact them directly via their web site.

Thanks, I’ll do that.This maker must be listed somewhere. I’ll let you know how I get on.
