Re: need help with the mark

The barrel shaped mark could indeed be a Belgian registered retailers mark. The oval fineness mark could be a Belgian legally regulated unofficial standard mark struck by the Belgian retailer, not by an official Belgian assay office. At the moment no access to my Belgian reference books Source: L. B...

See Hanau silver:

If CR under crown it is to me unknown German maker.

Re: Maker of Dutch cream ladle

Depending which guild city town assay office, early 18th century cream ladles often marked at the reverse of the stem. Later 18th century around 1800 often marked front of stem, close to the bowl. However the maker's mark on your cream ladle is the right way up with free space for an assayer to put ...

Hi John, your mark: https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/921/I323Th.jpg WAS no entries. Difficult one. Could it read W.S in an oval shield? Without town mark difficult to attribute. For example W.S for Willem Scholten, registered in Deventer 1776-1809 https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/320x...

Re: Are these Hanau marks and can anyone identify a maker?

Hi Ian,

The British importer registered in London J.S for John George Smith, See: http://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Make ... JU.html#JS


The pseudo marks could be for Neresheimer. See https://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_hanau_marks_01.html #[s513] and S[s520]
