CM 900 Mystery Bowl Mark

Hello All, I am normally quite good at reading marks and with a little help from the archives on this wonderful site I rarely have an issue until I came across this small bowl only marked as - CM 900 In an oval cartouche. When I first bought this bowl a couple years ago I, for some reason, thought i...

Navajo Turquoise Bracelet

Hello, I am having trouble identifying the artist of this bracelet (although its profusely marked).I believe the artist signed it in the Navajo language but also it is marked "JR" and the only reference I can find to a JR is Jerry Roan but the piece doesnt really look like his work. I trie...

Re: Silver Hallmark Bracelet (Arabic?)

Hello,

I think you may be right, I guess I needed a fresh pair of eyes to look at it! It has a slight difference though but the clasp is definitely Portuguese. Thank you for your help!

Silver Hallmark Bracelet (Arabic?)

I have a silver bracelet whose hallmark completely baffles me. Normally I am pretty good at figuring out (eventually) the hallmark and I have searched the archieves here but so far have come up dry. It reminds me of arabic silver markings (and there was a lot of middle eastern/egyptian silver filigr...

Re: Fine Silver Knives MY Mark Origin?

Maurice, I tried both tests by adding it to piece as well as a scratch test. I have a feeling the plating must be quite thick because I made a pretty significant streak and it still came back high purity. I wont bother with this again though as Id rather not damage it and now that I understand 100 i...

Re: Fine Silver Knives MY Mark Origin?

Thank you for the quick reply! After looking at the link the maker mark is definitely WMF so you are dead on with the German identification. I wonder why the acid gave a bright red color though. Thanks for your time!

Fine Silver Knives MY Mark Origin?

Hello, I have scoured the website looking for this mark but have come up dry so I thought I would ask here to see if anyone could provide some information. I am assuming these are bread/butter knives (if not please let me know as the different shape of them threw me off) and they are marked both wit...

Far East Silver Dragon Belt

Hello! I have a piece that has me confused and I was hoping some of the experts here may possibly recognize the piece or the style and point me in the right direction. When I first saw this belt I had just read a book on Russian jewelry through the centuries and the design of the belt links and clas...

Trev,

Thank you again! Its definitely the James Dixon & Sons mark. There seems to be a lot of James Dixon floating around over here in Canada from what I've found.

Idenitfying UK Silver Plate Mark on Goblets

I have a pair of somewhat artistically done goblets (or vases?) that have a base metal of copper and the artist has overlaid it with silver revealing only the copper on certain detailed areas (I believe this was purposefully done for artistic effect rather than just wear). They are both marked (one ...

Hello,

Continental Silver Tea Caddy? ID

Hello! I would like some help identifying the date/origin of this piece. It has a very Rococo look to it but I doubt it dates back that far. I believe it may be European (it has a continental 800 silver stamp) although I have seen this form before but done in a heavy Thai design and style, not in th...

Re: Silver Sugar Dish Marked 90%

Note : Just to add some of what my research has turned up in case someone else has a similar piece as mine. Its apparently a Cambodian Silver Ceremonial Cup which is a combination of rice bowl and wine cup (although other sources say its for water). Some other sources I find it is called a "P't...

Re: Silver Sugar Dish Marked 90%

Thank you for your quick reply! After doing some more research, the comparables definitely look SE Asian in origin so that was a great help! Are your pieces marked with the % as well? I was initially thinking this was part of a tea service set but after doing more research, Ive run across "Wate...
