Re: Need help identifying a pair of fighting roosters

@Peter, Yes, they could be solid silver, but they seldom are. I haven't seen such roosters in silver but many silver plated like mine. They are so called "discussion activators" and meant to be put on the dinner table in order to activate discussions during the dinner. They have the same f...

Re: Need help identifying a pair of fighting roosters

Sorry, but your roosters are hardly silver but silver plated. Of pure curiosity I took the risk and open the links because i have similar objects. What I believe has happened is that an acid test has been made. It showed very high silver fineness. The reason is that an electronically plated object's...

Re: Help needed in identyfiyng Russian or Baltic XVIII c. silvermarks

Yes some ideas, but.... Nonetheless, it could be from Lithuania and from late 18th, early 19th century because it hasn't Russian control marks. They were implemented around 1860. Unfortunately I cannot either find the maker in my sources, not even in Lietuvos Auksakalysté XV-XIX amzius, sorry...

Re: Austrian Art Deco mocha set with Diana Mark

Mind my saying but the same Diana Kopf was used in Hungary 1919-1937. This era fits better the Art Deco style (1925-39). The "little coffee pot" to the left is in my mind a creamer or do you mean the sugar bowl to the right? It has no lid, or? Anyway, it is not for sure that a sugar bowl a...

Re: Swedish Crown top christening spoon

We found the maker! You see, your text on page 71 says “Silverspoon (crowned) …….:Marked with Skien’s town mark (192) and the unknown maker’s mark R (195), length 11.5 blade 5,4 cm...” More or less the same information is found in my much newer book than yours and, in addition, the name Rasmus S…? a...

The Rasmus I referred to lived in Skien and not in Stavanger. Besides his surname begins with S. In addition, please read the text for your Stavanger Rasmus. It says that: "Av ham kjendes for tiden intet arbeite." If Norwegian is unfamiliar to you its says that no known work made by him ar...

Re: Swedish Crown top christening spoon

Your asking for an opinion… Well, my opinion is that this is a rather difficult case. Anyway, by trying to eliminate what country of origin it cannot be (probably not...) gives the following result: First of all, like you said, it can be a newly made copy, but it can also be an old renaissance spoon...

Re: Beautiful Russian Silver Ring With Hallmarks

First of all, never mix imperial Russia with the Soviet Union. Secondly this is a Soviet made piece and the difference in quality i enormous in favour of old Russia. Your ring is made by "Завод Эмитрон" i.e. factory Emintron in Moscow 1974

Re: Spoon, "GN", 1664

@AG2012 No, the form/style is not unusual for Norway's 17th century. Here another rather similar spoon. Pay attention to the form and the location of the mark. The same place as on orthogonal's spoon (red arrow). Both the style and the mark's location made me suspect a Norwegian master. I believe we...

You are welcome. Here a hint to find a suitable glass. I see that your location is Helsinki. You might find a suitable glass in second hand shops or flea markets.

Re: Spoon, "GN", 1664

Yes it could be Scandinavian. After an intensive search I have found one possible master punching GN. He is Gjert Jørgensen Niemand in Skien in Norway, born in December 1632, master 1660 and dead in January 1679. Is it a match or not, I don't know. Anybody has a better solution?

Re: Help with identifying maker's marks, please.

The maker's initials are actually ПДЕ (Latin PYeD) He is Pjotr Yermolayevich Davidov, active ~1874~1882/94 (?) in St. Petersburg and Kronstadt. That is a really nice podstakannik. Really pity that there is no glass or have you the glass?
