    Could anyone shed any light on the brass hallmarks shown in the attached picture please? I seem to have drawn a blank. I really would appreciate very much any thoughts and help on identifying these marks.

    Also I believe the items are cocktail stirrers. Am I correct?

    Many thanks
    Paul

    Hi I don't think those are cocktail stirrers. I think the part at the top can be opened abit and you can place a piece of paper in it, like Reserved or Table 1, etc for a gathering.

    Hi Pearlsnblume, I know where you are coming from with your thinking,(photos dont really show it) but the rings at the top are solid and also the long shaft and have no slit to open up.
    thanks for taking a look

    They might be silverplate marks, more than brass? Are they from the UK?

    Hi, they are definitely brass, not sure where they originate from

    Maker's mark. "Hallmark" is only properly used for the marks on precious metals.
