Here (Australia) We have a silver christening mug thought to
We have a silver christening mug thought to having belonged to my wife's g.g.grandmother. Wife born 1942, her mother 1912 and her g.mother 1872. Mug clearly has Birmingham, sterling silver and Barker Bros marks (BB over SLd. No duty mark. We are having trouble with the date mark. Letter Q, upper case, in a shield with shoulders shaved off and a point at base. Most closely resembles 1788 but BB not operating until 1801. Other possible but slightly less similar date could be 1865 but that shield has no point at its base and that date seems a bit late for the g.g.g'mother of a 1942 born person. Could you please resolve the date and the absence of a duty mark. Many thanks. *****: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?… read more
