Re: Dutch silver miniature figurines

Your AXE is OK, smells good. The hatchet (Axe), the 1853 duty mark for old silver objects of national origin returned to the trade. In accordance with several resolutions with further clarifications, this mark was intended for objects with the hallmarks of the ancient Netherlands silversmiths compan...

Re: 17th Century Hoorn Hoof Spoon?

Ida is a girls name. G for born (geboren) or perhaps married (getrouwd)
