Marks on the underside of the guard.

  1. I would be of much interest to see a collection of curent makers hall marks complete with names, regions and working dates.

  2. I have been working on a collection of marks for different makers. Adding the regions will not be a problem, however the working date will be a challenge. Some of the makers change marks, especially Hershel.

  3. Open question to all,
    And what exactly do we call this art movement? The inspiration for most of us has come from original artifacts as it was for the creators of the "Arts & Crafts" period circa 1890-1930....so what will this current period be called when we are gone?
