Marks. Arthur Grimwade mentions in his “London Goldsmiths 1697-1837” that, as during the New Standard period makers marks for silver consisted of the first two letters of the surname, this mark was possibly reserved for gold only, unless it was a mistake and corrected by Swann’s second mark in 1715 using initials “SW”.
