I am sorry to hear that. But at least I know more than I did this morning so all is not lost.


Thanks so much Trev.

Sugar Tongs

Some time ago I (or someone else) bought a pair of silver sugar tongs from a local antique shop. I looked with my spy-glass at the marks and I said they were not English. There is a fleu de lis on it which makes me think French. But the image of the Viking Longship next to it makes me think possible...

Re: Dutch Spoon by SBL

I think I am getting a bit bogged down in the marks Oel. So the sword mark denotes quality to be the very minimum of .833 and the lion rampant seen in the bottom pic means it is the very best quality of silver/highest content of silver which is .934? Am I correct? Also does the presence of the key b...

Dutch Spoon by SBL

Bought this silver spoon hallmarked Samuel Boyce Landeck dated 1897. The second pic from the bottom with the lion rampant above a key indicates it is 934 silver that was exported. The one at the bottom is the sword mark but the one next to it I am unclear. That is all I know. Any help would be immen...

London Maker - Unregistered

I have had in my possession for some time a pair of salts from 1763 hallmarked for London. I asked a fella' by the name of Phil who is with silvermakersmarks.co.uk back in 2011. This is not the exact mark that appears on the pair of salts as most of it is rubbed. But this is what it likely looks lik...

Re: Box

Hi, Welcome to the Forum. It's good to hear that you are enjoying your time here. The mark is 'J.S over M.J'. Who used the mark is unknown to me, but they were noted as being an importer of silverwares in the 1960's, and using the services of the London Assay Office. Hopefully someone else can iden...

Box

I am new to the site and I am loving it here. I have had in my possession for some time a neat little box with very intricate work on it. You can see the detailing on the first pic. But I know it is foreign because it has an import mark. But the makers mark stumps me. The mark is an "S" ab...
