Sterling Hammered Silver Teapot, Help w Maker PT 905

I have a beautiful large sterling silver teapot, 995 grams marked on bottom PT905 inside a kite shape.

Help to identify mark. Two standing animals under a tree under a crown

Have another mystery. Have looked through the silverplate marks pages and can't find this one. Looks like there were two calligraphy letters on each side of the mark that have rubbed off. Possibly an S on the right hand side. This is on a footed clam shell serving dish with candle holders. Any help ...

Repousse Sterling Top Dresser Jar - Help deciphering mark

I have a glass dresser jar with a sterling top. Looks like the makers mark is hand engraved and I can't make out the name. Does anyone recognize this signature? The makers signature is followed by the word 'Sterling' and then followed by another number that looks to be 911. Any assistance is greatly...

Help to ID PT 905 Mark on Hammered Silver Teapot

I have what I believe is a well done hammered teapot. Mark on bottom reads PT905 inside a shape similar to a diamond. I'm not sure of the composition but am certain it is silver or silverplate. Any ideas as to who could have made this piece or the origin? There is also a calligraphy G monogrammed on...

Have a set of 3 7/8" silver spoons. All of them are punched on the back with several markings. The only clear mark, to me, is the standard mark 800. The makers mark looks to be of middle east origin. There is what looks to be a quality mark but it's just too small to see with the equipment I ha...

Help with marks on bowl

I believe this to be solid silver and not plated. However, cannot find anything regarding the marks on this bowl. It's beautifully done. The work is intricate. It's reticulated with raised draping rosettes, and scrolls and birds all worked into the design of the bowl and foot. Measures 6 7/8" w...

Re: Covered Bowl Help w/Marks

I greatly appreciate all your help. I am trying to do more research and was wondering if you looked at the small symbol at the top of the main 3 lines of writing. I wonder if this is a purity mark? It looks like two circles with a line above them extending out to what looks to be a hook. I'm attachi...
