Re: Wild man crest on 1813 salt spoon?

Fairbairn's Book of Crests, 1905 ed. maybe plate 185 #2 : A demi wildman affrontee, wreathed round the waist and temples with laurals and supporting a club resting on the dexter schoulder.
Maybe Barr, Corney, Douglas or Lachlan family crests?
Anyone seen any of these family crests for comparison?

Re: 18th century rouge box

Thank you Amena! We thought that the NP was actually I.N over some symbol. With the proper image of Venice hallmark one can see the worn figure is exact. This small box has been cared for very well and being a reliquary would explain the condition more than a snuff box or rouge pot. We have found on...

18th century rouge box

Interesting 18th century French rouge box with worn example of makers hallmark for its unique charge/discharge mark. We believe maybe the horse head for Rennes circa 1768-74? (admin edit - see Posting Requirements ) https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg

Thank you. These cross over pseudo marks makes one think Wolf & Knell may have collaborated with some other Hanau smith in this instance.

Re: Whiting Mfg. Co. without trademark?

Interesting is that if this was made 1871 It was not made in N.Y. but in Mass. The factory, located in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, was destroyed by a fire in 1875. What was salvaged by the ruins was acquired by F, Jones and the production transferred to New York combining its manufacturing opera...

Re: sweetmeat dish or wine taster

Thank you very much. I have added new marks to my understanding of Hanau silver. I believe this is the first one I have found that has been partially hand hammered.

Re: 13. loth box.

Thank you very much for info. These are the only marks on box. I thought this was indeed german made by the engine turned design of wavy lines/diamond shapes on box circa 1850. Found this box and another that had hallmarks unfamiliar will add other box marks on other countries research area.
