Hallmarks Cover

The Sheffield Assay Office is proud to announce that the 35th edition of the Bradbury’s Book of Hallmarks is now available. This unique little pocket sized reference book is of great value, providing you with the marks of origin on English, Scottish and Irish Silver, Gold, Platinum and Palladium and on foreign imported silver and gold plate. There are updates on the amendments to the Hallmarking Act of 1973; it also includes details of further marks that appear on precious metals until 2020.

Ashley Carson, Assay Master at Sheffield Assay Office says “I am delighted that we are launching the 35th Edition of the famous Bradbury’s Book of Hallmarks. In my opinion it is the most complete and comprehensive book on hallmarks available.”

Monica Slater, Sheffield Church Recorder Leader at the National Art and Decorative Fine Art Society comments “Bradbury's Book of Hallmark's is essential when recording the silver items in a church.  NADFAS (National Art and Decorative Fine Art Society) Church Recorders weigh, measure and describe all silver articles. This reference book allows us to date establish the metal and date the year of assay.”
