Width 5 3/4" Traditionally, the hallmarks are 'struck' using steel punches. The problem with traditional punching is that the process of punching displaces metal, causing some distortion of the article being marked. Also to insert the wooden base that silver had to be worked after the punches had been placed. The re-working usually reduced the clarity of the marks and sometimes removed them. The date mark S has been moved over the town mark, the crown (Sheffield). John Roberts worked in London and Sheffield. At the time of the date mark S ( 1807) he was working in Sheffield.
