I understand that the use of stainless steel at Keswick began in 1931. By 1933 it accounted for half of the sales and continued to be a large part of their production until the School closed in 1984.

I believe that it was sold through Heals in London in the 1930s.

See SP's post above. Keswick can be a nightnare to date as they used the
same mark for the 100 years of their existence.

I think a lot of these are from the 60s. Any engraved patterns kill it.

Some staybrite items, with the less desireable engraving on the 2 coasters.

Nice recent find, a set of six Keswick Coasters with bird design in their original box.

Do you know what the numbering is? I'm guessing it's a pattern code?

The X is the year cypher and the numbers are the job number....Keswick used a dating system using the alphabet A through to Z then back to A again....year and job numbers started in November 1905....the next A would be in 1930 and so on 1956 and 1981....
