Re: Help reading the cursive signature mark on this pair of earrings

Hi,

I'm fairly sure that is the mark of Gerhard Herbst, a jeweler working in San Diego CA.

Cheers, Fin

Re: Silver Deutsch tray. Maybe Hamburg?

Hi,

Beautiful piece of Spanish silver, Madrid 1790. I am unsure of the maker, a possibility is Francisco Ruiz, but hopefully another member will be able to identify the silversmith with some surety.

Re: Is this an (Italian) assay mark?

However, I have seen the "Hecho A Mano" and "900" hallmarks on pieces from Peru, so I'm not ruling out Peru as a possible candidate, but it seems quite strongly rooted in Mexico with a very slight chance of Peru, perhaps further research will help :: The style of the tray is fai...

Re: Italian Flatware Mark & Pattern

Seems to be their Donatello pattern, still in production, but yours seem to be much crisper than the current offerings.

Re: arabic Necklace - origin and age?

Hi pinksteel, Yeah, I gotta admit that this whole region is confusing when it comes to marks. Egypt and Iran used a very similar standard/city mark format. Admittedly, the numbers seen on this piece of jewelry are identical with Iranian 800 (^''), but Egypt also used the same numbers in the same sty...

Re: arabic Necklace - origin and age?

I think that is an Egyptian 800 standard and city mark.

If you search the forum posts for Egyptian posts, you might be able to identify the city.
