Thanks,I am just trying to find out the year of this piece.
London - assay year 1852/53.
Thankyou very much,how collectable is a piece like this? It has been in our family for a long time. I was also trying to find more information on Robert victor Dumenil and what year he started as a silversmith.
Robert Victor Dumenil registered his first mark on 14th November 1895 but Culme in his “Directory of Gold and Silversmiths, Jewellers and Allied Traders 1838-1914” notes that he took over the business of Frederick Dumenil on the latter’s death in 1894.
Thanks Phil,that answers the questions I had about Robert Dumenil,how popular is Robert Davies’s work?
