My name is ***** ***** I'd love to help.
Use the +Add Files feature next to the SEND button to upload photos of the coffee pot, including the marks you mentioned.
The feature works best when you add ONE picture, put a word in the text box, hit send, then do the next.

This is a sterling silver tea set made in London by

John, Ed*****, *****er & John Barnard (Barnard & Sons) on the year 1836.

These marks on the bottom include the city, duty mark and date code to confirm all of this.

The set has a value of 2500 to 3000GBP.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are (local), (local),,,,,, eBay and (local).
You can also go to or and search their directory for an
auction house near you and consign to them.
