Nice find.. Lion could be citymark, but one more should be next to, so must be stering mark for 925/1000 - Dating mark I think is King William IV.. 1834 to 1837.. Without city master could be difficult to find.

Then you are correct in "King George III" 1786 to 1821..

well done Danzigman! (John)
Nice find...I love a bit of hallmarked silver. It is very satisfying being able to pin an object down to an exact date and place of manufacture. Usually that is possible only with coins.
Live long and prosper.

Nice piece of hallmarked Silver.
Whoever came up with the system has made identification and dating far simpler.
Well found, :thumbsup:
Dave.
