Customer Question
I have small silver...

I have small silver knife and fork the knife engraved with a delicate scroll pattern including a bird, The only marks I can find are HA in a small panel with possibly an E beyond on the blade. Can you help me with this ?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

The knife and fork are very old given to me by my Mother and she always suggested they could be from a dolls house set for nobility. I am 87 years old and have had these since 1975ish. Oh they were English.
