    I'm not sure what you would call this piece. It's only about 2 inches long and 1 inch wide. It doesn't have any silver stamp, but it has and "H&T" mark in the middle of the leaf in the third photo, along with an "H" and an anchor toward the bottom of the leaf. I think it might be Holmes & Tuttle, but I couldn't find one of their markings using an anchor. Any additional information on what this piece may have been used for, or the manufacturing company would be appreciated.

      I thought it might have something to do with tea service, but I just wasn't sure! Thanks so much for uncovering the mystery!

      Hilliard & Thomason, Spencer Street, Birmingham, England
      http://www.925-1000.com/bx_Hilliard&Thomason.html
      John Hillliard established his business in 1837/8 in Birmingham. In 1840 John Thomason jointed his business and they started to trade as Hilliard & Thomason.
      In 1910 the company went into voluntary liquidation upon W. E. Thomason's retirement after which the stock, goodwill, plant, machinery and dies having been purchased by E. J. Haseler and N. Haseler, It was re-formed at new premises at 29 Warstone Lane, Birmingham.
      Lower part of date letter cannot be seen.Could be 1856. The same capital ‘’H’’ in different cartouche for 1932 but it`s too late.

      Thanks so much for the information IVAN! I've been helping a friend identify this piece. I don't think she was expecting it was from the 19th century and the clarification on the manufacturing company was great. Thanks again.
