Don't wish to upset the apple cart,but I don't think it is, wrong shape and there's that blob between the letters, but I'm not saying it's the wrong firm.

I don't think they are the same, these manufacturers marks are very specific down to the type of letters used and background used for the stamp. As you can see in these two examples both are different. If the manufacturer was only in to white metal work then there is a possibility that the mark has never been recorded anywhere.

If it was William Manton, there were two William Mantons in Brum in 1903, one listed as a silversmith , and the other someone who did gold & silverware, but seemed to be mainly jewellery. I think the former is most likely. If so, then in 1903, which is the possible date given previously, hw was at 103 Vyse St, which later became the Jewell Cafe in picture below (taken 1969)

I knew a Jeweler in the Quarter years ago, He used to drive an old Ford Anglia and throw his old tattty briefcase into the boot.
I have seen enough “shiny Stuff“ as he called it to buy a nice car.


I started out with nothing and Iv'e still got most of it left

I make two trips to the Jewellery quarter each year, the wifes birthday and our anniversary. I sometimes will make an extra trip at Christmas time. It used to be really cheap until a few years back when legislation stopped them selling to the public at trade prices. It never really was trade price, but it was a great deal cheaper than High St retail prices.
