Re: 19th Century Italian Initials

Re: Trust or Bust? Tiffany Sippers.

Circa 1960s, don't see any problem with the marks, typical in style and location - see this thread from 2010: http://925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=18974

Re: Help with ID Black Starr Frost pattern 1894

Hi ~ welcome to the forums (good job on posting pics). Black, Starr & Frost were primarily retailers, your pattern is Dominick & Haff's 'Renaissance', introduced in 1894, and there is indeed a 'North Wind' type face - for future reference, any marks on a piece should be included, even if the...

Re: Schleswig-Holstein spoon w/red glass stone - HOG

Thank you so much, Theo. A quick search finds that you already have the mark - really do miss your site, any hope of it being back up in the near future?

And thanks, Silverly - was aware of the similarities in some Schleswig-Holstein marks...

Re: Schleswig-Holstein spoon w/red glass stone - HOG

Thanks for the effort, but seems extremely unlikely that this spoon was christening gift for a little girl in America - truthfully, my searches were focused on the shipping industry.

Hopefully one of our European members can come up with the maker...

Re: Possible bird with head facing right, letter A, & anchor—need help identifying maker

Hi ~ welcome to the forums. For future reference, a much more clear image of the mark is usually necessary, but I know this pattern well - it is Alvin's Orange Blossom (Old), introduced in 1905 - please look here for Alvin marks and an example of your pattern: http://www.925-1000.com/ax_alvin.html ~...

Schleswig-Holstein spoon w/red glass stone - HOG

Hoping to find the maker on this nice if well used spoon, just under 9" (22.8 cm), town mark appears to be Kiel or Schoenberg or thereabouts, and the maker 'HOG'. The pricked engraving looks to read, 'C.H.Bartram 1832.', thought it might possibly be a captain's spoon, the name seems English, an...
