New Research Project -Identifying English Silver Hallmarks

I found this lovely item this weekend.  Actually I didn't notice it had the hallmarks on it until I checked it out at home. I was so excited!  It's the first piece I have found with the silver hallmarks, don't really know if they are English or not.  It's just something that I have always wanted.  I think this box is just beautiful, a chrysanthemum shaped flower on the top, with small decorations around the sides.  The marks on the bottom are very faint, and I'm not having much luck so far in my research.  Researching a piece is very time consuming, you always seem to find that piece that you just can't find any information on.
I think I might just have to hang on to this for awhile!
