The Chester Mark is Back!
The Chester Assay Office closed its doors in 1962. From this date, the Town Mark of three wheatsheaves and a sword in a shaped shield have remained dormant. Although no longer a hallmark, the Town Mark can be added alongside our current hallmark, separated by a double space to avoid confusion. Lucy Quartermaine has chosen to add the Chester Town Mark to her Jewellery, representing her heritage and paying homage to the this amazing city, the place she calls home and has chosen to raise her own family. The Lucy Quartermaine brand is based in Chester and proud of the history of both the Chester Assay Office and Hallmarking.
