This particular silver ornament that i have has me baffled i cannot seem to identify the marks. At the back of the ornament there is the markings pp&s accompanied by identation of a hand along with the initials s.p. At the front of this piece of silver there is a vague image of a crown with feathers coming out of it. Could anyone please give me any information on what this could mean??.
Regards, Vincent

Hi there

I suspect it's Sheffield Plate by Padley Parkin & Co. Not only was their sign "a hand", but PP&Co is suspiciously similar to PP&S (as per your item).

Hope this helps a bit
