Re: Spoons

2 – 0 to me so far. And both of you are mind readers. Well Traintime, thought transfer across the Atlantic. Is there money in it? I too had thought that the “slimmed” trademark might have been part of the “careless talk costs lives” program. However that only came to me as I walked to get my newspap...

Re: Spoons

Hello, I came across this old post when doing some research into companies who make War Department cutlery. The presence of a “broad arrow” mark identifies this cutlery just as same mark identifies most other British Army equipment. The cutlery also almost always carries the year of manufacture/requ...

Re: English Tea Set Hallmark

Hello I think I have some images (and an idea) to go with this post. First we have some other examples of the cannon associated with the electroplating company of Abram Brooksbank & Co. http://i64.tinypic.com/1zd0kzt.jpg The label is on the box that contained some forks carrying the shown set of...

Re: P R Horsehead 90...Is it German or Dutch?

Hello, Jennifer_sita, I hope you are still looking to see if you have been replied to. This is an occasion when I do not need to answer my own post about a Dutch silverplate mark with the “horse’s head” image. It was in 2013 and 2014 that I posted similar images to jennifer_sita’s without response. ...

J Birdsall, Skipton. Part one?

Hello, this post is a bit like an auction mixed lot and I was not sure about where to post it. Sorry you got the short straw. It was to be a post concerning a jeweller based in the North of England with the name “J.Birdsall”. His jeweller’s shop was in the market town of Skipton in North West Yorksh...

Re: Early 19th Century spoon with “balloon” mark

Thank you Theoderich for your quick up date on the maker of my spoon. I had a quick look on the internet with the name. I found nothing different on line to give a more precise date for my spoon. It is obvious that "G.A.Scheel" was working at some period while “Georg Friedrich Persch” was ...

Re: I think this is German - Marked 12

Hello, I see that Theoderich has not made any suggestions as to the maker of this spoon. Do we assume that the second mark is not a maker's mark? My first careful look at the second mark was that it looked like a Roman numeral "XII", and could be just number 12 again. Sorry to ask but I ha...

Early 19th Century spoon with “balloon” mark

Hello I just bought the serving spoon shown in the picture below as it had crisp marks and I did not recognise them. http://i68.tinypic.com/30calhw.jpg If I have posted it in the correct section on the forum I have obviously learnt a little about the spoon now. I believe it is silver and we see “Sch...

W.P. Mark? William Page of Birmingham Electroplate?

The William Page Company trademark consisting of the “WP” inside a crown or inside a diamond, inside the crown, was about the first 19th century electroplate mark that I immediately recognised. Accompanying symbols were often in the style of “pseudo hallmarks” and although a letter “A” or an odd ”C”...

Re: Does anybody recognize this spoon mark?

Hello, just came upon this post. Can not tell exactly where this mark is on the bowl, but wondered if it was a pre manufactured fancy "blank field" for a local jeweller to inscribe a buyer's monogram. Surely that would give the opportunity of easy personalisation of a "stock" ite...

Thank you Mhmorningstar to show this both interesting looking knife and annoying set of gothic style maker’s marks. Is this a butter knife? Do the serrations go all the way along the edge of the blade and was this type of knife typical of any particular time period? Trev suggests a “marriage” of an ...

Re: Spoon England 1954 marks

Hello, I can possibly give you some pointers for this spoon, but I will need to ask you a question first. Is there a "crowsfoot" or "broad arrow" mark between the "K" number and the 1954? There is not a lot of contrast with the spoon. worktop and the flash. I believe th...
