I just found what I think is a silverplate egg coddler. There is a mark but I was wondering how old this company was and what the marks mean. The bottom says Edward & Sons Glasgow with the numbers Y75I or Y751. It doesn't says silverplate or any kind of metal but I'm assuming it's silverplate, would that be correct knowing these marks. Thanks a bunch. Bobbie K.

Edwards was a retail jewelery shop in Glasgow which retailed good quality
silver items at the beginning of the twentieth century.

You may wish to inspect your piece carefully for possible hallmarks on the body of your piece. Vi

Hi Vi. Thanks so much for your response. I took another look at this piece. On each piece is a . with a - over or under it. That's a dot and a dash. Could that be a Hallmark? Also do you know what the y75I is? There is also the number 96 ED/A very lightly scratched into the bottom. At first I thought the owner had scratched some identifying marks but the 96 is scratched on each piece very faintly. Any ideas?
