More than 5 years ago, Mike got me all the paraphernalia that goes with having a hallmark, as a birthday present. I have done it at last! I now have a new range, (the MARCHIATO range) of purely those hallmarked. This consists of: my makers mark, the 925 silver purity mark, the Scottish Lion, the castle from the Edinburgh Assay Office ( the letter r, indicating 2016. These are all either heavier than 7.78g or more technically complicated or both. Hopefully it won’t be another 5 years before I send off another batch!
