      The silverplate mark is English.
      JOHN GRINSELL & SONS
      JOHN GRINSELL & SONS LTD
      Birmingham
      A business established in Birmingham before 1864 as Grinsell & Bourne. When the partnership was dissolved (1871), John Grinsell started a new business with his sons (Thomas Bywater Grinsell, James Erazmus Grinsell, Lorenzo Grinsell and Joseph Charles Grinsell) as John Grinsell & Sons. In 1905c. the firm was converted to John Grinsell & Sons Ltd. Later the firm was puchased by Barker Ellis & Co Ltd.

      The porcelain insert is a bit of a tease. There is some talk on the net that it might be Doulton but that is disputed.

      I suspect the Grinsell firm had a manufacturer do the inserts for them and marked them with their mark Semper Paratus. It may well have been a company like Doulton.
