Early 19th Century Matthew Boulton & Co. Old Sheffield Plate Wine Cooler : EBTH

We had the whole house on the front of the street and there was a lady up the top of the yard whom I called Granny White. She used to assemble the door locks for Rolls Royce. Also in Barker Street lived a family called Giblin. As far as I remember the Mum was Jean and there was a daughter whom everyone called Lolly. Aunty Jean and her family moved out in the redevelopment era to St. My dad was a very bad cripple and I had poor eyesight. I remember being so proud of being able to get some messages for my Mum and Dad from Ricketts. I also remember going down Nelson Street with a basin to fetch tripe and onions and also remember the fruit and veg shop down there. He had nine brothers and sisters and his Dad my Grand-Dad was a blacksmith.

A certain misapprehension has always surrounded the subject of silver from Sheffield. Popular belief holds that it is the same as Sheffield plate. This belief is justified up to a point, for there certainly was an interlocking of interests between silver from Sheffield and Sheffield plate, as the story of the Sheffield candlestick shows.

It was new in July or August with Kingstonian fleet names. An Ian Allan fleetbook correct to January gives it as carrying its name. If you Google “B40UAG”, the first result should give you a photo by the late Roy Marshall taken in Hull in and shows the name being carried between the windscreen wipers. Is that a remaining green gantry pole opposite Kingston Vets on the same side as the Apollo pub near the roundabout?

To the best of my knowledge, trolleybuses did not extend beyond Ings Road on the Holderness Road route after they directly replace the trams on this route in The green traction pole you refer to at Diadem Grove roundabout does indeed look like a former trolleybus pole. I suspect this was one of many to be re-planted at various locations for street lighting purposes following the withdrawal of trolleybuses in Hull in It begs the question as to why it is still there, apparently serving no purpose.

Your identification of which type it is would be interesting. David Beilby That photo looks more like a sewer vent pipe than a traction pole. I never knew such things existed on a public road.

Sheffield Plate is a cheaper substitute for sterling, produced by fusing sheets of silver to the top and bottom of a sheet of copper or base metal. This ‘silver sandwich’ was then worked into finished pieces. At first it was only put on one side and later was on top and bottom. Modern electroplating was invented by Italian chemist Luigi V. Brugnatelli used his colleague Alessandro Volta’s invention of five years earlier, the voltaic pile, to facilitate the first electrodeposition.

Unfortunately, Brugnatelli’s inventions were repressed by the French Academy of Sciences and did not become used in general industry for the following thirty years.

People aren’t necessarily looking only for sterling; they just want to know what they’re buying. Most of the time, you can find the answer simply by turning over the teaspoon, fish fork, ice cream saw, or cheese scoop antique flatware is that specialized. On the reverse side, you usually find an indented mark or series of marks that holds a wealth of information about the item — not only what it’s made of, but sometimes also where, when, and by whom it was made.

This applies to hollowware — such as cups, bowls, teapots, and vases — too. The first step in deciphering these marks is to learn what kinds of silver are out there. Some of the oldest American silver is coin, which contains an amount of the precious metal that was set by the U.

It was a spotter’s paradise, and I wish I could have gone there more often, but as the journey involved catching a train from Leeds and changing stations at Manchester, my mother had a morbid fear that her small boy could get lost somewhere along the way. It never dawned on me that she had another, more tangible reason, like ‘Mother Love’, for example, but since she offered no other explanation, her refusal seemed very unfair.

Didn’t she realise how important this was to me? But the answer was an emphatic ‘No, no, no! A few weeks later I met the doyen of young train spotters called Bonzo. Aged thirteen, he was a veritable professor on railways, who taught me all I needed to know about the Stanier ‘Black 5’ two-cylinder s with Belpaire fireboxes, tapered boilers and outside Walschaerts valve gear; the 3-cylinder express variant ‘Jubilee’ class and rebuilt ‘Royal Scots’, and the 4-cylinder ‘Princess Royal’ and ‘Coronation’ class Pacifics.

The ‘Coronations’ included the ex-streamlined locos which had been stripped of their casing in , yet instantly identifiable by their bevelled smokebox tops. The LMS hierarchy was keen to have a crack at the record and upon completion of they invited the press for a special run from London Euston to Crewe on June 29th In order to get the best performance out of the loco a section of the WCML’s maximum speed limit was raised for the attempt, but it wasn’t until the special train got perilously close to Crewe that the LNER record was eventually beaten – the LMS claimed a peak of mph recorded on the chart of the loco’s speed-recorder.

Sheffield Museum Knives

It might surprise you to know that the tool you use to eat with every day was once considered immoral, unhygienic and reminiscent of the devil! Before the introduction of the fork, most people preferred to eat with their hands. There would be a ewer and basin at the table for cleaning hands, and the table napkins and tablecloths were frequently changed during the course of the meal.

If an utensil was necessary, a spoon was used and the nobility might eat their meal using two knives, one in each hand. When in Maria Argyropoulina, niece of the Byzantine Emperor was married in Venice to Giovanni, son of the Doge of Venice, she brought with her a little case of golden forks, which she used at her wedding feast.

Tuesday, February 2, Researching… Sterling Silver And Silver Plate My wife and I visit in excess of garage sales, estate sales, auctions, and homesteads every year. Multiply that by the 31 dealers currently at A Classy Flea and you can imagine that we come across a myriad of interesting finds. Fortunately, one of the biggest joys I receive from working at A Classy Flea is that I love to research the more interesting things that I come across.

I am lucky that I have the ability to remember much of what I have researched and am able to apply that knowledge when I come across similar items later. The other dealers in our shop know they can use me as a resource for identifying and assisting in valuing their finds. Lately, they have been bugging me to share my secrets so they can research their items without taking my time, so that is what is prompting this weekly blog.

I, like many other people throughout the world, enjoy collecting silver over gold not only because of the considerable difference in cost, but it can be found in so many different forms. I have seen sterling silver in coins, flatware, jewelry, tea sets, platters, trophies, lamps, candelabras, statues, drinking cups, baby rattles, knife rests, and on and on and on!

So, what are the marks and what do they mean? To better understand silver marks, lets start at the beginning. It was discovered that this combination gave silver the best of all properties of luster, workability, and strength. What may be surprising to you is this is not a recent discovery. Though silver was mined as far back as BC, the sterling alloy likely originated in continental Europe and was used for commerce as early as the 12th century in what is now northern Germany!

There, the pieces would be inspected for quality and stamped with a city stamp to show that they had passed inspection.
