Re: ID? Art Nouveau Vanity Jar "Star 572 MI 925"

It may even be that this company bought the old molds and used them as this design it is so very similar


Not very likely.
Art nouveau floral motifs and wavy lines were popular and reproduced for many decades and worldwide.

Interestingly, Pavlov G.K. continued to work after the revolution ! According to the directories, he can be traced up to 1931 (inclusive). Но самое интересное, и после революции Павлов Г.К. продолжал работать! По справочникам он прослеживается до 1931 года включительно. He moved to Barmaleeva street...

Re: Cloisonne salt cellar

Looks more complicated. About the marks ГП и Г.П Г.П (with dot) - this is the mark of Pavlov Gennady Konstantinovich. I remember a powder compact with the image of a horse, with which this topic began - there is 875 standard and maker`s mark Г.П and it was Pavlov, who worked under the Soviets. Mark ...

Re: Cloisonne salt cellar

Hi,
Enamel is of rather poor quality and marks have several issues.
In my opinion, not authentic.

Re: Gold Ring. London Newcastle Sheffield?

Hi,
Trev`s comment makes sense because diamonds are set either in white gold or platinum to enhance their white colour and sparkle.
Prongs made of yellow gold are usually avoided because they add unwanted yellowish tint to diamonds.

The third mark from the left is definitively an attempt (unsuccessful) to depict the imperial eagle.

Hi,
Trev is right about French silver plate marks.
Could be Christofle and 5 g denotes 5 grams of fine silver used for silver plating.

Re: Confusing hallmarks on a silver wine taster

I suggest to have it tested (electronically,accurate and not aggressive).
Difference of either .950 or .800 may shed some light on French provenance.

Re: Confusing hallmarks on a silver wine taster

Hi,
Both marks (A 800 and possibly maker`s mark next to it) are consistent with Belgian marks.
Cannot tell if French marks are genuine.

Re: Russian Silver Basket Hallmark Identification

Curiously,though, there was another mark overstruck with maker`s mark, whose name is written in old orthography (mentioned in PL book).
As said, search for more marks, possibly only 84 and КП.

Hi,
There was Constantin Yakovlevich Petz (Константин Яковлевич Пец) in Moscow, working at the time when your basket was assayed.
More marks are expected (handle, basket sides).

Re: Silver bowl with coin, Dutch marks?

Demand for ``antique`` silver dictated pseudo and fantasy marks. Difficult to say if this was done with a clear intent to deceive.

Re: Silver bowl with coin, Dutch marks?

Hi,
Welcome to the forum.
I think the set of marks belongs to Hanau pseudo marks, but cannot attribute them to any particular maker.
For unidentified crowned ``L``and crowned lion see here (scroll down):

Re: vintage cameo found in Cyprus with hallmarks

Hi,
It`s photo locket pendant with glass stones, much older than the clasp on the chain, attached later.
In short, most likely only the clasp was made in Italy.
