Monogram on silver beaker

Hello there,

I have recently joined these forums and was hoping somebody could offer some assistance.

Attached is a monogram on a silver beaker I recently purchased. It is English with a London hallmark for 1933.

Is the engraving indeed a personal monogram? I am unable to decipher the ornate lettering and I cannot identify the crown. I assume the foliage and wheat are also if some significance.

Many thanks and best wishes

It's nothing I recognise, I'm afraid. I think you probably need an expert in the area. Maybe the assay office where the silver hallmarks were registered might be able to point you in the right direction. Good luck!

The crown looks like it might be Ethiopian, and the lettering could be Ge'ez script. I've tracked down the monogram of Emperor Haile Selassie and there are similarities, but not a match.

What a great find.

Following your lead, I found an Ethiopian medal that has a similar crown to the one on the silver beaker.

Thanks for the prompt reply. I may try to contact the maker as they are still in operation.
Happy New Year!

Thank you for this! I would never have guessed Ethiopia. Some extra research for me! Happy New Year.

Cypher is please.

Good day.
I'm new to the forum but have a quick introduction on the newcomers thread.
However, I joined up as I often find copper cookware with cypher & monogram inscriptions.

Any help with this one would be greatly appreciated 🙏

All the best, Steve

Victoria & Albert ?

It is almost identical to the monogram of the Dutch King, here on a button worn on uniforms of his palace staff: https://www.paleisamsterdam.nl/media....width-500.jpg

Many thanks Duc_et_Pair.
I think you are right. Ideal!
I have found the exact mark searching for "Victoria and Albert cypher"

Thanks for your suggestion.

All the best, Steve

French Crown/Coronet ID help request?

Good day all.
Hope you can help with the ID of any of these three marks?
Sourced from France so I presume they are french marks?

Any enlightenment would be greatly appreciated.

All the best, Steve
