In Part I, I gave a brief history of the development of the British silverplating industry in the 18th and 19th centuries. Now I would like to offer some tips on how to determine whether a given object is silver, Old Sheffield Plate or silverplate. In England silver has been marked in some manner since the 12th century when it was first regulated by Parliament. The marks made it possible to trace the maker and the place of manufacture.
This helped to protect the consumer, for if it was determined that the silver object was not actually pure enough to be marked as silver, the culprit could be found and punishment could be meted out. As silver objects made before are quite rare, I shall restrict my comments to those made after that date. In Parliament established the standard for purity for sterling silver and instituted a mark indicating that an item is of sufficient purity to be deemed sterling.
That standard means an item is made of The mark is a Lion Passant -the image of a lion walking, facing left. You may be sure that an object bearing this mark is English sterling silver made after

Whilst baking some cakes this week for the Pot Luck party a party where you bring a random dish I measured out a table spoon of sugar into a bowl, using the same spoon I have always used for doing any kind of baking. However, this time was different, with my new found interest in silver I spotted it had some hallmarkings on the back. I knew it wasn’t any kind of silver as I didn’t recognise any of the markings and from the way layers were revealing underneath I knew it definitely couldn’t be solid sterling silver.
Curious I headed to google to find out more. To prevent confusion the desk bell was added to the hallmark with James Dixon using a bugle symbol.
