trouble with date mark

I have a crystal jar with sterling lid with British hallmarks but I can't seem to get the date mark. I'm guessing between 1891-1899 because of the shape of the shield, but I would appreciate any better guesses.
The jar is on my site - you can find it with "vanity jar".


Re: trouble with date mark

Your glass vanity jar with the with silver lid was made by Gorham. The lion anchor and Gothic G are Gorhams marks and not English.

Hope this helps,
