Hi, I have tried the above links and none are coming up. If you click on the file upload button here within our post and follow the prompts the photos should upload. If for some reason they do not you may also email the photos to me at***@******.*** and in the email please put "forCustomerin appraisals" The company will then send them on to me. The email does take a day or two to forward to me however I will post my evaluation back here promptly. Please let me know if you email the photos so I can keep abreast and watch fro the forwarded photos from the company.

From the description you have given me so far I am able to tell you the following:

Pattern: 28586 (Silverplate, Hollowware) by Walker & Hall

Pattern Number: 28586

Description: Silverplate, Hollowware, Gadroon, Shell

The business was established in Sheffield in 1845 by ***** *****. Becoming an assistant of Dr. ***** ***** who had conducted important experiments on electroplating Walker secured the royalty of electroplating for Sheffield. The business was joined by ***** ***** and became in 1853 Walker & Hall. The factory was at Howard Street, Sheffield, while showrooms were opened in 45 Holborn Viaduct, London. Branches were opened in Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Edinburgh,Newcastle, Cardiff, Belfast, Hull, Bristol, Melbourne and Adelaide (Australia), Cape Town (South Africa). Walker & Hall was converted into a limited liability company in 1920 under the style Walker & Hall Ltd and combined in 1963 under the British Silverware Ltd with Mappin & Webb and Elkington & Co. Walker and Hall Sheffield were primarily Sheffield Makers, but items with Birmingham, London and Chester Assay Marks can also be found.

I will be able to date and value the tray once I can see the markings. Thank you and I look forward to finishing this for you.
