18th century Swiss ladle ?

Hi. Can anyone help identify this silver and wood pierced ladle? The little research I have done suggest it may be Swiss. It is about 22cm long. It is hallmarked with what is presumably a town mark (a shield type device), and a makers mark WB. Would be grateful for any help! Many thanks. joho. http:...

Re: Help needed!! German marks ?

Hi Amena Yes, AG2012's comprehensive answer was a great help. It got me to Venice. I am sure that without it I would still be looking north of the Alps!! Here are a couple more pics. I don't think they show anything more, but as you say a photo does not hurt. By the way, is it possible to determine ...

Re: Bowl from Venice ?

Many thanks Amena, that is much appreciated.

I have another item posted on the German forum that another member has suggested may be from Venice. I will see if I can get it moved to this forum. I would value your opinion.

Thanks again

Bowl from Venice ?

Hi All. Can anyone identify where this bowl is from? Looks like it was made late 18th or early 19th century. It is heavy for its size and is 12cm long. There are 2 marks on the base. The one looks like the winged lion of Venice with the letters NP with pellet between, below. The other mark is only p...

Re: Lion passant facing right

Thanks Trev. Can you leave it with Newcastle as well as Provincial and Colonial or is that against the rules?

All the best

Lion passant facing right

Hi All. Can anyone shed any light on this 18th century teaspoon. Its appearance dates it to 1720's or 1730's. It is bottom marked with maker's mark IG with a pellet between and a lion passant facing right (not very well struck, but discernable), in a straight-sided rectangular punch. My initial thou...

Re: Maker of Dutch cream ladle

Many thanks Peter. Agreed - the SVM mark looks very similar.

Is there any convention on which way up the marks were struck?

All the best

Maker of Dutch cream ladle

Hi all. Can anyone help identify the maker of this small cream ladle? It is about 10cm long. The maker's mark is stamped on the front of the stem where the handle joins the bowl. It is in an oval punch. There are no other marks. The maker's mark could be WAS, with the W and A conjoined, but the mark...

Help needed!! German marks ?

Dear All. I am hoping someone can identify the marks on the base of this round silver box. It has a pull off lid surmounted with a cast pear with leaves. The box is about 7cm high and 6cm in diameter. Weighs 105 grams. Two of the marks look as though they could be spread eagle wings but I can't be s...
