Physical description of a large Dutch silver Coffee Pot, late 17th century.

Dear silver specialists, This may well be a rather odd question, but i'm cataloguing a rather large private collection of fine art which contains a majority of great contemporary and post war paintings (my specialism) but also some very attractive silver objects.

Abraham du Castel maker's mark?

Hello everyone, I have a dutch Silver Caster and Mustard Pot from 's Hertogenbosch (Forest Tree), (K = 1735) but i contains two marks that are unclear to me. The items are attributed to Abraham du Castel (d. 1713). So one of the marks could well be a maker's mark. (if so what does it represent?) One...

Re: Dutch Teacaddy

Hi Gary, welcome to the forum. The tea caddy appears to have Islamic Indian and or Persian motifs. The unclear marks do not have any resemblance to the known VOC marks used in former Batavia or Ceylon, as such I would not call the tea caddy Dutch.
