Vietnam cigarette-case ?

Not sure if solid silver because I cannot identfy the marks. The lid examined from the interior seems to be cast (but could be hammered too). The marks read "VIE T-NAM" over "D.X VD. Could anybody please tell me who made it. Regards silverfan https://abload.de/img/rimg7262blktb.jpg ht...

Re: Austrian Art Deco mocha set with Diana Mark

Thanks huszas76 and AG2012 for telling that Gustav or Gebrüder Resch were the maker of the mocha set. In the internet I found that during the monarchy they were court suppliers. Is this right? Starting from the style I suppose the set to be created between 1918 and 1923, very "Avantgarde" ...

Re: Austrian Art Deco mocha set with Diana Mark

Hi Qrt.S and all, sure this period fits the style better, but the Diana bears 3 and A for Vienna as I said. So the item must be produced before 1923 in Austria. To the left you see a little creamer and to the right a little sugar bowl, in the middle the mocha pot without lid. I have an idea how the ...

Austrian Art Deco mocha set with Diana Mark

These small pieces are marked with Diana 3 and A for Vienna, so they must have been produced before 1923. A very early Art Deco pattern!? Maker's mark reads GR. Who is it? The handle is marked with two A. For Vienna or another meaning? The little coffee pot has lost its lid. How could it have looked...

Re: Russian cup with saucer Petersburg 1857

Thanks again. Last questions. I think the marks on the cup to be punched (slight indentations on the opposite side, impression mark), the marks on the saucer are difficult to judge, because the bottom of the shield looks like the bottom around it, but there is a slight indentation too. When scrutini...

Re: Russian cup with saucer Petersburg 1857

Thanks Qrt.S and AG2012, I am "calmed". @AG2012: I do not understand the russian text after the double point and further down. What means SKURLOV in this context?

Re: Russian cup with saucer Petersburg 1857

Hi Qrt.S, when looking on the cup standing on the saucer the cyrillic letter N is the first letter and the other marks are upside down under the rim. Is it possible that when the maker, following the rule, marked the item first, the assay master marked to the right and to the left? Are the marks on ...

Re: Russian cup with saucer Petersburg 1857

Hi Q.rts. Thank you. Here some slightly better photos. The letters you describe are right, but I think the cyrillic N is the second letter. So it is perhaps another family name. I didn't find the maker in PL. Russian silver remains a difficult thing for me, so that I normally do not dare to buy with...

Russian cup with saucer Petersburg 1857

Some days ago I saw this cup marked St. Petersburg, assayed by Eduard Brandenburg 1857 with a maker's mark I could not yet identify. Two letters: cyrillic N and a letter like the G in the word Fabergé. I know the photos are very bad, but I can not do better at the moment (if I buy it, later better p...

Re: German Silver Tray, marked with maker's mark JB

I wanted to say that - though I know a lot of companies - I never saw this mark and that a tray is not the easiest product for a silversmith. From a skilled silversmith one would have expected to see more pieces.

Re: could this mark be german

Rückert was a silver company in Mainz and the mark on the right could be the wheel, town mark of Mainz. The company was taken over by Gebr. Reiner, Krumbach around 1930.

Re: German Silver Tray, marked with maker's mark JB

In my register of german maker's marks there is only one JB without dots which is attributed to J. Benz, Pforzheim. I am not sure if this is right, because I do not know this company especially not as a maker of a tray.

Re: Dutch salt

Hi amena,
I am not sure, but I do not think it is a eye bath, because all eye baths I have seen have an oval or round shape. Here there is a rectanguler shape, perhaps the glass liner has been lost.

Re: Dutch salt

Hi Peter,
Thank you very much. The salt is older than I thought. When using a magnifying glass I discovered on a normally impossible position and that is on the lower edge the very tiny year letter W for 1831 (see first photo).

Dutch salt

This little salt is marked with lion 2, Minerva in a corner of the bottom (I could not recognize the letter on the head) and a maker's mark which I could not identify. Who is the maker?
