I purchased a fish-set recently and on the knife it has the following hallmarks. I would appreciate more information on it.

Thank you.

Hi Johan,

I′d like to point out that the marks are not hallmarks. Unfortunately the true meaning of hallmarks is being lost and many people think that any mark punched or cast into a shiny item is a hallmark.

Hallmarks are marks applied to items made from solid precious metals only. They are applied by authorised persons on behalf of a governing body to prove that the item conforms to legislated and or mandatory conditions. These conditions include such things as country of origin, silver fineness(purity) and whether applicable taxes have been paid plus others such as date of assay and/or whether the item has been imported.

Your set is silver plated and therefore does not have hallmarks. The marks it does have were applied by the maker and are called makers marks. They simply show that the set was made by the London company of Roberts & Dore.

Cheers,
Steve
