British Hallmark?
by: Anonymous

I have a key ring and fob marked Asprey JG&S
Hi thank you for writing in with the following hallmark question:

"The clip which holds the ring is also marked:

JG&S , a picture of a crown, figures 375, an anchor on its side, and the letter N

whilst the fob is marked:

JG&S , a picture of a crown, figures 375, an anchor on its side, and the letter M

Can you tell me when it was made, and why the marks should differ"

Perhaps a latter addition.

JG&S GRINSELL & SONS (Sterling & Silverplated wares, Watches & Clocks, Birmingham & London, UK) - ca 1871 - 1903

However there is a dot between J G.

So I don't think this is a British Maker's Mark...

could you please attach three photos and send to the following email address:

  • One photo should be the actual marks
  • The second that of the entire item, and
  • The third that of a larger area surrounding the mark

    Also any information in relation to the following:

    1. When and how acquired, for example: inherited from grandma 10 years ago when she was in her 80s  OR  purchased at a Flea Market or Auction 6 years ago  OR  picked it up at a Garage Sale from a French family 2 years ago etc

    2. Any related family history that may help in focusing our research to a particular Period or Region, for example: I remember seeing it at my grandma's house since I was a little child while still in Virginia  OR  my grandma brought it with her from Germany in the 1950s  OR  my husband found it at a Flea Market in Oregon 20 years ago etc

    3. Any other information you may have already discovered and any other details that will help.

    with regards
