ENGLISH ELECTROPLATE SILVER
I recently received a tilting teapot.

A ‘ ‘ symbols denotes the end of that individual stamp. So what do I want? Any information regarding dating this piece and any history anyone has on the above company. The firm continued to be a family run enterprise until I have found so far that workshops owned by James Dixon and Sons were involved in the Sheffield flood and some dies and stamps were damaged, which could be an indication of where and when my piece was made?
I use to work in the silverware trade until I was made redundant in the late 80’s. A company called British Silverware Ltd now owns several old Sheffield family silverware companies. Hope this as been of use. I believe because of the stamps it has it cannot have been made after because that is when James Dixon and Sons were granted a bugle trademark stamp. Also it couldn’t have been made before because before that the company was known by a different name so the inititials wouldn’t have been used.
I have cross referenced with other stamps online and it appears that it is likely to be James Dixon, but the way the stamp is on there, is different to anything I have seen so far for that company, which is why I thought the dates of the flood may have been relevant.
