Hi and thanks for any help you can advise me of.
I had a quick browse of your sticky and help on identification but nothing appeared to be fitting what I have. I am new to this and it is a bit of information overload.
To give you a little background, I work in a charity shop and we get items from time to time that are silver, I generally pick up on this whereas others don’t like the collectors bangle with trinkets on it that was a mix of German and Italian silver with British Sterling silver.
We had a donation and it contained some silver that was a mixed bag of what I call generic
shiny shiny wears as they were just nice looking shiny silver, one was a candle holder and another looked like some kind of sacrament plate on a stand, one was definitely plate silver from Spain and very modern as it has “Made in Spain” on it.
One item was a rather heavy silver electroplate vase, standing 10" tall and the markings I could only just make out as in the image.
- undistinguishable marking, could be 31,
- Castle or Crown??
- Thistle ??
- the letter S
- a trumpet / Bugal in a shield
Then a set of numbers 129-7090
a symbol and followed by a number 67
Whilst I was not in the shop, the manager was cleaning the vase and other silver items and someone expressed an interest and offered to buy the items.
So I am more curious as to where and what the date letter dates this piece at, its not been looked after
that well, it may not be worth much but I would be interested to know as much about the piece as possible so we can decide on whether or not to put the item in the hands of someone who would buy it for its marketable value and not some
Del boy deal
Any advice is appreciated.
