Re: Need help identifing this mark

Hi Don Smoka,

I'm finding the marks too difficult to interpret due to their diminutive dimensions...but looking at their position, plus shape and decoration of the set itself, speaks volumes as to its origin. Everything about it shouts Italy to me. Wait and see what Amena has to say...

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Please help identify silver hallmark on snuff box

Hi Gerox,

Everything about this box suggests Simon Rosenau of Bad Kissingen (Hanau, Germany) to me. Makers mark SR under a crown. Check out :

Re: this tea pot not too sure about at all please help me

If you look on the rim above the Gorham maker mark of lion, anchor and letter G....you will see the word STERLING. I assume you understand that this means solid silver of 925 parts per 1000. The numbers 3355 are of no significance. They are internal manufacturing numbers either relating to the patte...

Re: London Silversmith's Mark

Hi Kevin, I agree with AG2012 and his attribution to Carrington & Co and I'd just like to point out that your pattern is actually Queens rather than Kings. They are very similar but the main difference between the two is the shell on the front is convex on the Queens and concave on the Kings. Ch...

Re: Silver hairbrush, Wilhelm Binder?

Hi Dandelion, I concur with it being Wilhelm Binders mark. The centre T is very distinctive leaving no doubt in my mind. I have seen the poorly struck B on several occasions now and wonder if possibly a damaged punch was used for a period, or if it is merely the result of the curved surface and the ...

Hi and welcome to the Forum, The marks show your beaker to be solid silver and made in Nuernberg (Nuremberg). I'm no expert in this area, however we have members who are, and will be able to date it more accurately than I, and may possibly be able to identify the maker. If my comparisons of your Nur...

Hi All, Hope everyone had a great Christmas. I found this nice little snuff box online, sold by a third party seller who claimed to specialise in antiques and collectables. Clearly silver is not an area of expertise as this guilloche enamel box was listed as a base metal in an obscure category...eno...

Hi Patagere, I agree with your assumption re the ability to positively identify the marks, hence the lack of immediate response. We have some forum members who specialise in German silver and so if they haven't chimed in yet, it's a pretty good indication that a positive Id may not be possible. From...

Hi Ol Silver, I can quite honestly say I'm stumped as to the purpose as at 45cms is too long for most table implements. The only thing I can suggest is a drinks stirrer for a jug of Pimms or similar. The maker is interesting too as the mark certainly could be a match for Charles Francis Hall. The le...
