Thanks to the “date letter” any piece of British sterling silver can be exactly dated. Old Sheffield Plate and Electroplated silver are not subject to this practice and the regulation issued by the authorities had the main objective of preventing possible frauds by unscrupulous sellers of plated ware. The best-known initiative is the prohibition effective from c. Elkington was forced to change its mark in of stamping plated wares with the “crown”, to avoid misunderstanding with the symbol identifying the Sheffield Assay Office.

A Hummel figurine can be dated by the marking or trademark on the underside of its base. This mark is also referred to as the backstamp, stamp, or figure. This is very important as Hummel values are determined by age as well as scarcity. An older version of a figurine can command a much higher price than one which was made at a later date. It’s also important for authenticating a figurine as one lacking one of the following marks is quite likely to be a forgery.
The following markings are the standard backstamps you are most likely to see on the vast majority of Hummel figurines.

The Art and Archaeology of Clay Pipes A short history of Clay Pipes is presented here along with photographs for your enjoyment and for help in identification. Please note these images are copyright and you should write to me if you wish to use them in your publications. The earliest clay pipes known in England and Europe are generally thought to date from c.
English mariners setting up the first colonies there were introduced to smoking which was cermonial but it was not long before smoking was taken up as a habit by mariners who travelled from port to port around the globe. The site of Historic Jamestown has recovered early examples during archaeological excavations and Sir Walter Raleigh’s Colony at Roanoke Island is one of the places where the clay pipe was seen and recorded by John White. Although the use of tobacco leaves was known by Europeans since the time of Columbus in only small amounts were brought back as an exotic herb for medicinal experimentation at first.
The ancient people of Ecuador were using pipes as long ago as BC and the region of Central America first colonised by visiting Europeans would have been very diverse in what it had to offer. It is not until the mid to late 16th Century that we begin to find written references to the smoking of clay pipes in England.
Tobacco would have been smoked, sniffed and chewed by mariners and as we so often read about the oceans of the world at this time were used by traders, fishermen and of course pirates. Exactly who arrived back smoking a pipe is not known but pirates, privateers and early sailors were the first to bring it to the attention of people here in England and the smoking of a clay pipe was taken up very quickly.
Smoking attracted a lot of publicity among the rich Courtiers and soon after the common people. Sir Walter Raleigh is said to have made the habit more popular and also offered Queen Elizabeth a pipe.
