The hallmarks on a silver tray now owned by Michael (b.1939) indicate that it was made in Sheffield, England in 1907. It must have been bought and engraved for Claude as a wedding present (by his father?) at Jay & Co.of Oxford Street, London. It shows once again the tiger crest and motto of the arms granted in 1568 to the Osborne family who became Dukes of Leeds.

|Claude was given the name Ogden from his great grand-father George Seton Ogden. George Ogden was descended from John (the Pilgrim) Ogden who settled in the US around 1640.|
