    It's the retailer's mark (not an official maker's/sponsor's mark) of Child & Child (partnership of Walter & Harold Child) of Seville Street, London SW. The Childs also had an official mark of WC over HC in a flower-shaped cartouche.

    J.B is the mark of Brownett & Co, the initials being those of Jane Brownett, widow of Abraham. The hallmark is, of course, a London sterling mark for the assay year 1885/86.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    Did you acquire this silver item in New Zealand? Is it very common to find antique London silver there? I would love to visit New Zealand someday. (I'm in the U.S.)

    I unearthed this in Rutland in the UK. But yes, there is a fair bit of antique London and Birmingham silver doing the rounds in NZ!

    A lot of Brits and their descendants. And probably export from 'the Motherland'.;)
