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

Re: ask for help with the identification

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

Re: Norway 1803 Spoon <crown> C VD - makers mark help

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

Re: 17th century English spoons reworked in the 19th century.

Thank you all for your observations, very enlightening. Again seems to be the age old problem, do we retrain what has been passed down, sell it, or bring it up to-date? For those rising up the social ladder, how to look respectable with little cost. Although have seen a few examples of appraisers re...

17th century English spoons reworked in the 19th century.

Good day, Was reading through some old posts on English and French spoons when I spotted a comment made by Trev on a 2008 thread about an English spoon. He stated that "when originally made would have been plain, the decoration is a later Victorian addition." Having recently acquired a Ebe...

Looks like it's worth a bump.

Matt can you rotate image three to the 12 o'clock 3, 6 positions to see if it sparks an idea from anyone?

Re: JFT in a crossed Pickaxe and Shovel

Good evening, Was also confused by this mark then found an entry in silverflatewarefashions.com for E.J. Towle Mfs. Co. Note the two marks have different positions for the same letter. T over E and J then E over J and T. https://www.sterlingflatwarefashions.com/Silversmiths/SST4.html Hope this helps...

Re: 1730's coin silver spoons?

Good evening, Looking at the image with the marks, to the left there appears to be to be a partial city mark for Hamburg Germany. Was looking through the list of Hamburg marks on this site, very few of the cartouche conform to the shape of the gate except Johann J Wienickle 1858 - 1865. The letter i...

Thanks Trev, Always happy to help when I can. Going through Tacitus.nu more slowly today, it was stated that regimental standards had two different motifs.

Re: Missing town mark

Good Day Matt, Right that IR in oval cartouche appears to be John Robertson of Newcastle. This particular mark has been seen between 1795 - 1797. Upper case G in clipped cartouche is the Newcastle date letter for 1797. From my reading here had assumed that the lack of a city assay office mark took p...

Re: Who’s mark is underneath George Ferris’ mark?

Thank you Phil much appreciated. Brings up a few questions: Did Father and son use the same makers mark registered in London then at a later date in Exeter? Appears that both men were alive in the circa 1815 time frame, so in Matt's case did the father or son use old stock to create the finished dec...

Re: Who’s mark is underneath George Ferris’ mark?

After re-reading Phil's London entry on GF it does say that this mark was seen from 1798 - 1819. The comment about about the over stamp does appear on the end of that same column.

My apologies.
