Happy Twelfth

Dear Members, Happy Birthday to the forum, we are 12 years old today. When I began this forum back in 2005, I could never have imagined that it would mature into such a fine (and large) community dedicated to the sharing of knowledge. It has only been able to do so thanks to the excellent work of ou...

Re: SPOON. P&M. CAN'T ID MAKER OR MARKINGS. HELP?

Hi, Welcome to the forum. You have a very nice American spoon with an interesting decorated drop. I believe it is by Rowland Parry and James Musgrave. The following excerpt is from Ensko's "American silversmiths and Their Marks" PARRY & MUSGRAVE 1793, Philadelphia, Pa., at 42 South Sec...

Re: Possibly Scandinavian Beaker

Hi, I agree with Cheryl, the marks seem more consistent with Japanese manufacture than any other location. On the other hand, I'm fairly sure that the design is by Alphonse LaPaglia, dating from his days at International silver. Believe I had a couple of these goblets with Lapaglia/International mar...

Re: please help with unknown hallmark

Hi,

McGrew "tentatively" attributes the mark to Montgomery & Co. and/or Morgan Morgans, successors to Albert Coles. However, I believe it is more likely a "W", as does Cheryl in http://925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=35384

Re: A sugar bowl

Hi,
Looks like a Hanau piece, suspect the marks are pseudos we've not seen before, Simon Rosenau of Bad Kissingen seems a good possibility for the maker.
