Re: Mystery Spoons. Has anyone seen these 5 spoons?

Hi,
They are definitively Italian.I have examples with gondola finial and the same putti on the stem (Venice).
Statue finials were popular with souvenir spoons, the statues being either from antiquity (Ancient Rome) or saints.

Re: unknown maker on a chamber candlestick holder

Hi,
Looks like one of the marks used by E.G. Webster & Son,Brooklyn, NY 1886-1961.Plumes mark is perfect match and E.P. most probably stands for ``electro-plated``

Re: Sheffield Sterling 1881 - Help with maker please!

Hi,
Hanau (Germany) pseudo-marks.
Most likely B.Neresheimer and Sons:

http://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_hanau_marks_01.html

Crowned H is perfect match and they were well known exporters to UK.
Hanau silversmiths used various combinations of pseudo-marks.

Re: The napkin ring. Enamel.

Scandinavian enamel was (and still is) of superb quality.For example, Anton Michelsen of Denmark mastered one of the most difficult enamels, i.e. blood red translucent enamel.
