Many Thanks Martin http://i63.tinypic.com/ivh4bb.jpg http://i66.tinypic.com...

Damaged or pseudo marks?

Hi I have posted here as these marks are London marks or purport to be so, I would welcome any opinions on whether these are genuine but somehow damaged London marks, or are they pseudo marks? Many Thanks Martin http://i66.tinypic.com/15q6d1x.jpg http://i68.tinypic.com/28iyivn.jpg

Re: Maybe part of a bowl from Edinburgh

I think it's a stylised M as in Electro Plated Metal.

Correct with minne - but thats not original bit a later inscription. The original is the prick engravement. 100 years older.


Thank you very much for taking the time to try to find the maker.

Hi

You haven't given the dimensions, but it looks like a wine bottle coaster with the wooden base missing.

Re: Very large basting spoon

Thank you both for the information. Steve my spoon is a little bit smaller, it measures 38cms, but is certainly very similar in style.

Thanks again

This is overwriting an earlier dot prick inscription, I know it may be rrelevant to the spoon's origin but it might provi...

Very large basting spoon

Hi I have put this in the Scandinavian section, purely because it looks most likely to my eyes to be from this part of the world. However there are no town or country marks, just the makers mark stamped twice. Does anybody have any ideas? Many Thanks Martin http://i63.tinypic.com/9a7ntx.jpg http://i...

Re: Help with marks

I don't believe pieces marked like this are so called "duty dodgers", as you say it would make no sense to sign your name to a criminal act. Maybe the item was made for personal use or as a gift to a family member of the silversmith, or possibly a piece of silver brought in by the customer...
