Customer Question

I have a Mappin and Webb Dressing Table Set. The set includes a clear glass etched perfume dispenser and a clear class dish. Both have silver and blue green enamel lids. The perfume one is hinges. In the original box are .2 hair brushes, 2 clothes brushes, one lace up gadget, one shoe horn and one hand mirror. All have silver and the same blue green enamel. Each has the Mappin and Web Hallmark, the letter B, a lion and what looks like a flower.
Could you please tell me something about these items.

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.

I am a long-term collector and dealer in and of English silver.

To give you the most accurate answer, I need some photos.

Please send photos of the set and of the marks.

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 "reply to expert" 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.
