Question
Hi Jim

I have 2 silver wine goblets, in their original box, left to my husband by his grandmother.
They have a continuous grape vine etched around the upper half, and a tiny M stamped near the centre of the underside.
Can you please tell me what you can of the origin and value.

Thanks
Beka

Answer
Hi, Beka.

The "M" could represent a number of manufacturers. Since there is no mark to indicate that they are made  of sterling, they probably are made of silver plate or some other metal.

Is it possible for you to send a picture of the "M" mark? Also, is there any information on the box?

Sorry I've been no help so far.

Best wishes,

Jim
