Re: Mark on cigar cutter - Austrian?

Hi Krisztián,

You are absolutely correct, it could also be Hungary. Hopefully Patagere can confirm whether there is a town letter and if so, what it is,which will also be a step in the right direction in possibly identifying the maker.

cheers,
Steve

Re: london made spoons, date identification

Hi,

Your spoons were made in Newcastle and not London. The maker is Alexander Kelty and the year 1805.

Re: sampson mordan?

Definitely not Sampson Mordan. If you look closely at the second letter it is missing the top serifs of the letter M. I'm convinced it is the letter W... meaning the mark is WS.

It looks like a good match for William Schofield to me and 1828 is within his time. See what others think.

Re: Pair large 8 1/2"spoons in box what was their use.

Hi Guido, The crest on the spoons is that of King Edward VII. Your serving spoons were made in 1901(as you pointed out) which is the year his mother, Queen Victoria died, and he ascended the throne. I believe they were made as commemorate items of this royal event and would have been sold to both to...

Re: date seems confusing

I agree the maker is Henry Matthews and the date letter is the italic letter v for 1895. I know it looks a lot like the letter b but if you compare with the example on Phils site below you will see that its a match. After bringing up the page, click on the column containing 1895 and then on the indi...

Re: Photo frame

Id' like to clarify a minor point. Ag2012 has stated that it was made in Florence and imported into the UK. The hallmarks show it to be the other way around do they not? I see domestic Sheffield 1992 marks, not import marks.

Cheers,
Steve
