Seller: kalfredphisser (640) 100%, Location: Newton Aycliffe, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 113898785583 THIS LISTING IS OF 3 ANTIQUE/VINTAGE SILVER PLATED SALT AND MUSTARD SPOONS.THE FIRST SPOON IN THE LISTING, THE SHORTER OF THE 3 SPOONS, IS AROUND 9.5 CENTIMETERS LONG AND IT CARRYS A SET OF MAKERS MARKS BETTER SEEN IN PHOTO 3. READING FROM THE LEFT THE FIRST MARKS "WH & S" RELATES TO THE MAKER FOLLOWED BY THE GOTHIC LETTERS "BP" FOR “BRITANNIA PLATE” JUST INDICATING “BRITANNIA METAL” WAS THE BASE METAL TO HAVE BEEN ELECTROPLATED FOR THIS SPOON. THE "WH & S" RELATES TO A WELL KNOWN AND LONG ESTABLISHED “SHEFFIELD” ELECTROPLATING COMPANY "WILLIAM HUTTON & SONS". THE “”MP” OVER “A” MARK IS ANOTHER OF THEIR TRADE MARKS. “HUTTON’S” SHEFFIELD CONCERN BEGAN PRODUCING IN THE SECOND THIRD OF THE 19th CENTURY AND WENT OUT OF BUSINESS ABOUT 100 YEARS LATER. CLOSE DATING THE SPOON IS THUS DIFFICULT. IT IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION CONSIDERING IT WAS FOR SALT AND ONLY HAS LIGHT SCRATCHING AND VERY LITTLE IN THE WAY OF TARNISH OR PLATE LOSS.THE REMAINING 2 SPOONS ARE OF A SIMILAR SIZE, AROUND 13.0 CENTIMETERS LONG AND BOTH ARE IN FIDDLE PATTERN STYLE. THEY ARE LIKELY MUSTARD SPOONS. THE MIDDLE SPOON IN PHOTOS 1 AND 2 IS IN GOOD CONDITION AND HAS LIGHT SCRATCHING WITH A LITTLE TARNISH OR PLATE LOSS. ITS MANUFACTURERS MARKS ARE SHOWN IN PHOTO 4. OBVIOUSLY IT HAS THE TRADEMMARK “ALBION SILVER” TOGETHER WITH “L&W” A “SHEILD” AND AN “S”. THERE IS A REFERENCE TO “ALBION SILVER” BEING ASSOCIATED WITH THE SHEFFIELD ELECTROPLATING COMPANY OF “LEE&WIGFULL”, EXACTLY THE MARKS WE HAVE, INCLUDING THE “S” FOR SHEFFIELD. THE LOWER SPOON IN PHOTOS 1 AND 2 APPEARS TO BE THE OLDEST OF THE 3 SPOONS. IT IS IN LEAST GOOD CONDITION WITH OBVIOUS MARKS AND PLATE LOSS AND HAS RUBBED MAKER’S MARKS (PHOTO 5). THANK YOU FOR VIEWING THIS AUCTION ITEM. THESE SPOONS CAME TO ME AT AUCTION WHEN BUYING SOME OTHER SPOONS I WANTED. PLEASE SEE THE OTHER ITEMS I HAVE FOR SALE, AS I WILL ALWAYS TRY TO REDUCE POSTAGE ON SECOND ITEMS WHEN IT IS POSSIBLE TO SEND ITEMS TOGETHER. I OFTEN USE RECYCLED ENVELOPES/PACKAGING AND HOPE MY MAIL CHARGES ARE CONSIDERED REASONABLE. FOR UK BASED WINNING BIDDERS ONLY, I WILL ACCEPT UK POSTAL ORDERS AND CHEQUES AS AN ALTERNATE TO PAYPAL. E-MAIL ME IF YOU WISH TO USE A NON-PAYPAL METHOD. WILL ANY OVERSEAS WINNING BIDDERS WAIT FOR AN INVOICE BEFORE PAYING AS THIS ALLOWS ME TO PACK AND WEIGH THE ITEM AND MAYBE GIVE A MARGINALLY LOWER POST PRICE. I HAVE USED AIR MAIL SMALL PACKETS. FOR THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND ONLY, SURFACE MAIL IS A METHOD OPTION. MY LISTED COST OF INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE IS THE HIGHEST ANY BUYER COULD POSSIBLY PAY. TO EUROPE WILL BE CHEAPER. UNFORTUNATELY EBAY HAVE CHANGED THE SELLING SUITE AND IT SEEMS OVERSEAS POSTAL OPTIONS CANNOT BE LISTED DIFFERENTIALLY. I PROMPTLY LEAVE MY FEEDBACK WHEN THE WINNING BIDDER HAS CONFIRMED WITH FEEDBACK THE SAFE RECEIPT OF THEIR ITEM. Product: Spoons, Age: 1900-1940, Composition: Silver Plate
