Re: Unknown markings on 1764 serving spoon

Thank you for sharing with us Finn. If you could leave the images posted would be of great assistance to the next person. If you wouldn't mind rotating the marks image would make it easier to read them.

Re: Unknown markings on 1764 serving spoon

Yes I would agree with you, only my confusion of the marks of the father and son make it difficult for me.

Re: Unknown markings on 1764 serving spoon

No Qrt,

I always confuse them myself inspite of the fact that they are clearly marked here. The year mark is the only item that normally keeps me on track. Any thoughts on the makers mark?

Re: german silver spoon 17th century double coat of arms

Worth a bump.

Would it be possible to see both marks rolled over, may make more sense to someone.

Recently read the post where one of our members suggested using Postimage.com. Have signed up but am having difficulty ...

In a number of cases reading through the posts here and on other sites does help track down some of them. All of you have also gotten me looking at work that I would not do otherw...

Re: 17th century german silver spoon

Your right what I spotted had two marks. Would still like to see the mark turned over for a better look. What do you both think of the spoon itself?

Re: Help with marks please

Good day Lee,

The marks are from Persia/Iran. The language is Farsi. If you rotate your first image from the lower right position to the upper left, it will be easier for other members to read. The calligraphy on the central figure most likely identifies who he is.

Hope this helps

This is worth a bump to see if the identification of these marks can be ascertained further.

Glad you enjoyed it Doug,

Have a Norwegian teaspoon with the same marks as yourself for 1806. Was reading through another thread when I spotted the possible maker's mark on mine, just needed to flip the spoon over. Good luck on your search.

Re: spoon, ? copenhagen 1826

Good evening,

The Danish national silver guarantee mark for 1826. The N for Danish national assay master Christian Neaboe who served from 1823 - 1827. Let's see if our more experienced members can advise of the silversmith IAS or JAS.

Hope this helps
