R. Blackinton & Co Hallmark date

Hello. My name is David. I found an old Silver Makeup case with the R. Blackinton & Co Hallmark on it. I have read that the company stopped using there original hallmark in 1900. Is this the original hallmark I have found? I am trying to date this Makeup case. All the info I have found puts this case before 1900. Please let me know. I have included the picture of my hallmark. Thanks. David
