I recently purchased this wonderful goblet on line. It is silver over copper with just a touch of copper showing through the rim base.I have never seen real Sheffield plate but this seems to meet most of the requirements.Crossed keys, crown and a kings head?

Can you date this for me and give the real scoop?

hi there,

I'm not sure if these marks qualify your item as "sheffield plate". My Bradbury's says that marks with the Cross Keys are most appropriately termed electro-plate. The fact that the crown is present would indicate that, if the maker was a law-abiding citizen, he or she would have made this item pre 1896. So, my sense is that the item is electro-plate and pre-1896. I could be wrong, and if so, I'm sure one of the many experts here will set the matter straight.
