This information is from a book entitled “The Silver and Sheffield Plate Collector” by W.A. Young and is a list of Old Sheffield Plate “devices” and the makers associated with these marks. I do not recall seeing makers marks referred to as devices, but it is a pleasant way of labeling the function of the symbols.
This book is not dated, but I think it originally was published in the early 1900 and has been reprinted several times.

This book, published in 1919, is in public domain and has been available on google books for a while - I check occasionally, since a few old silver books show up as their copyrights expire...

Thanks Cheryl for that information.
While staying inside I have been going through some books that I brought many years ago. Another interesting book is Old Plate Ecclesiastical, Decorative, and Domestic It’s Makers and Marks by J H Buck. This book was published by The Gorham Manufacturing Company in 1888. Gorham was not only a premier silver manufacturer at this time, they also had a serious interest in documenting parts of the silver industry. It is fascinating to see what someone in 1888 thought was important.
