Re: 18th Century Swiss goblet - marks?

Hi both of you - Thank you for the help with researching! Oel, I can't believe you identified the mark from that awful picture! Here are some more pictures of the item - any help is really appreciated. Its initialed underneath 'MD' conjoined. http://i63.tinypic.com/2wfmouv.jpg http://i64.tinypic.com...

18th Century Swiss goblet - marks?

Hi all - I have a question regarding a piece of silver which I believe to be late 17th Century Swiss. Can anyone shed any light on the marks? One appears to be oval with some visible texture, somewhat indecipherable, and the other possibly a maker's mark? LK below a coronet. All help much appreciate...

Re: Unknown makers mark

Hi Phil -

Thanks so much. Could I ask what the source is? I did check your website, but had no luck! Don't have any of my usual resource books to hand at the moment so I'm a bit stuck in a rut!

Re: Russian Fork Identification

Hi all,

I thought it was against forum rules to post asking questions only with a view to selling the object immediately on auction websites! There was once a time where I received a stern ticking off and was issued with a 'board warning' for doing so.

All the best,

Unknown makers mark

Hi all, Does anyone know the maker of this spoon? As far as I can tell it is a German piece dating from the late 18thC. 27cm in length and weighing 97g. http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj239/ammolithmine/656a3c10-1cfa-4e06-8091-069496ba41b3_zps29vyvkb9.jpg http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj239...

Re: Articulated fork / spoon serving tongs

Hi Trev, Many thanks, this is what I thought. The pair are 9" in length, and very interestingly, are clearly made for purpose as opposed to being a rehash of an existing fork and spoon. Also worth noting is the presence of a full set of hallmarks on both the fork and the spoon, plus a heraldic ...

Unknown Dublin Makers Mark

Hi all, Does anyone know who this unknown Dublin silversmith is? I can't find the mark in Jackson, or anywhere online... The hallmarks are for 1838. http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj239/ammolithmine/19712558-3805-428b-9f87-6b60696d8f8d_zpstjjswqni.jpg Any information much appreciated. P

Re: You only have to wait ten years....

Hi Goldstein,
Very nice objects, but I think you've made a little mistake here! The second object isn't actually a matchbox - it's a pocket disinfector. I'm sure Qrt.S will vouch for this ;-)) We all make mistakes.

Re: Quiz time

I didn't feel there was any need at the time to show the marks as this question was about the use of the object, not who made it, when and where. I will post clear photos tomorrow when I have the objects to hand.

The marks on the pieces are exactly as they should be. Warsaw 1908-17, Piotr Latkowski.

Silver trowel without makers mark

Hi all, Can anyone shed some light on this piece? It is a large trowel (around 12" long), would it have been used as a presentation piece, or? There are no inscriptions on it. Also, the only two hallmarks on it are the George IV right facing duty mark and the crowned harp - so it must be from 1...

Re: Patent Registration Lozenge Mark

Hi AG,
Yes, they were indeed copied by Alessi, however this isn't one of the Alessi reproductions. It certainly isn't an 'original' Dresser teapot (they sell for £100000+), but I suspect that this is an older reproduction.
