What year for cruet set hallmarked Hardy Brothers - misprint

Hi all,

I would need some advice on this cruet set hallmarked Hardy Brothers. as I don’t know the year. One has a misprinted ‘Made in England’ mark over Hardy Broth.

YOur help is appreciated.
Cheers
Tom

This cruet set, assuming that all of the marks on the other pieces are similar to the ones you show, is not silver as it does not have any silver hallmarks. Indeed the “A1” mark shows conclusively that it is electroplated. As such it is impossible to date.
