Re: Silver Chamberstick Maker Identification

Hi,
Welcome to the forum.
The mark is probably 176 FI.

If so,the maker is from Florence, Italy.
PAMPALONI ERMINDO di PAMPALONI FRANCO Via del Gelsomino, 99 FIRENZE

The mark is used 1944 - 1968.

Re: POMANDER 13luth

Not all string holders were hand (wrist) held.Sometimes they were placed on the floor.Even if meant to be suspended on the wrist, they were often placed on the floor for easier knitting.

Re: POMANDER 13luth

Hi, Krisztián is right about Radelpunze F1 for Olmütz in Bohemia.The same unidentified maker on top compared with your mark. It is a Biedermeier string holder, more commonly seen in Central Europe but there are e.g.American as well.Have seen several in museums of applied art, so there is no doubt ab...

Hi,
I think it`s the statue of Columbus monument on Piazza Acquaverde in Genova, Italy.
Columbus actually came from Liguria.

Re: Trying to identify the maker of this spoon

Hi,
Unfortunately,identifying the maker would be an impossible task if there is only Reichsmark (crescent and crown) and purity.
The mark was used after 1886.

Re: Compass pendant date

Hello again,
Could be 1886 (or 1911). Cannot see the cartouche, but letter cursive ``m`` looks Gothic (Old English).
There are small items without Victoria sovereign head duty mark.

Re: Compass pendant date

Hi,#
Most likely 1911 but images are really too small.
I suppose 2011 is too late.Is there 925 in an oval ?
Try better close up.

Re: Candlestick ,empire

Yes,there was another socket. If you insert a candle into the leaves and light the candle the wax will drip uncontrolled over the whole candlestick.
There are silver sockets to match the opening,if not found, there are antique glass bobeches - candle wax catchers.

Re: Candlestick ,empire

Yes, the same leaves on socket and legs.
Unusual construction of the socket,though.I mean, being without the bobeche (wax protector).Additional candle socket is often detachable and possibly missing here. Inserting candle directly into this socket does not seem practical.

Re: Candlestick ,empire

Take care;the leaf decorated capital (top part of the candlestick which holds the candle in place) was possibly taken from another candlestick.
How is it fixed to the column ?

Re: Who is the maker?

Hi, Silverfan is right.It`s Otto Schneider, Berlin. Your mark is on top, Compare every detail. Even the crown is almost the same. What looks like an animal is actually worn out mark resembling contours of e.g. a rabbit (the eye, ear etc) but nothing like that. Just worn out letters. Regards https://...
