Completely lost identifying the hallmarks and the meanings.
Lion passant is silver
Leopard indicates London
Capital Q in a shield with a pointy bit in the middle looks like 1891.
Capital F in a circle?
I have forwarded on the image to a friend who gave me the book!
Any idea what is
Q and F seems to be a year, but together?
As of ETR - it seems to be manufacture. Which one?
I think ETR must be the maker but a quick Google wasn't much help.
Hopefully my friend will be able to help as he collects a lot of silverware
It could be ETB not ETR
ETB into a chamfered rectangle (Edwin Thomson Bryant [ L ] ) end 19th c.
So, Q (1891) makes sense with ETB
F in circle left.
My contact confirms the above 1891 and the Edwin Thomas Bryant info and adds; The F in the circle cartouche indicates that it's foreign silver imported into the UK. The office of assay is London.
