Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.I will be pleased to help you.
Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment.
Please send me a photo of the marks.
Also, please send a photo of the whole salver.
You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.
If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.
To send photos you may use the "add files" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.
An explanation of this method can be found here:
Electroplated silver was patented by Elkington in 1841 or 1842. Many Georgian styles have been copied over the years as well.
I am an English silver specialist. I have been a collector, a dealer and appraiser of English silver for 57 years.
The correct interpretation of the marks is essential.
I am sorry you cannot get pictures to me.
