Customer Question
I have a set...

I have a set of parfait cups - silver that I am not sure how old they are.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

The marking looks like it maybe Glasglow with a capital R inside a sheild.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

The number is *****

I see that you tried to relist, but that is considered a duplicate question and was closed.

I would need to see a photo of the items and a photo of the marks in order to assess, will you be able to do that?

Let's try it this way. Here is the Glasgow mark and those that would include a shield and an R would be 1888.

Let me know if this looks like your mark and I can continue.

I actually think your pieces are something else, but we'll start here.
