Re: Dutch silver

Hi,

Check if you can find a date letter and office mark. The Amsterdam town mark is a pseudo mark. The lion passant above 2 was used 1814-1953.
A clear enhanced image of the maker's mark could be helpful for identification.

Re: Unknown Marks and French Control Mark struck twice - why?

Hi Jonathan, welcome to the forum. Double hallmarks occur when an item is made of component parts of the same precious metal, either hinge or a link connected. The boar and base are considered linked, thus the boar marked with the double swan and the base with single swan. The French swan mark; the ...

Re: Help for this french's marks

Chapeau Dendriet, you are right. The Belgian import/duty marks were applied after the old marks had expired and new marks were introduced when the bowl came up for (re)-sale. Riddle solved. In 1795 the Low Countries are conquered and occupied by the French armies. The Austrian Netherlands, the Princ...

Re: Help for this french's marks

Hi JayT,
I used Marc Rosenberg IV. Band/Ausland und Byzanz (1928) Frankreich Departements ( France departments) and compared with # 5894, it appears the French hawk lacks an "eyebrow"

Re: Help for this french's marks

Hi, yes French with Belgian import/foreign duty marks, the hawk head facing left for medium sized silver work, used 1809- 1814. The Belgian script E under laurel, E is for étranger/foreign for imported large silver-work used 1815-1832. I recognize the French walking rooster in octagon frame for 2nd ...

Re: silver tea pot is this japanese or chines silver

Without image of the tea pot hard to say which time period but these marks were extensively used during the Meiji Period (1868-1912) however some traditional manufacturers still use those marks today. To my knowledge no links available to learn more about Chinese and Japanese silver hallmarks. You c...

Re: silver tea pot is this japanese or chines silver

Hi, welcome to the forum.

The big square mark in Japanese read; Humbly Made (by) Miyamoto. Together they create the logo from the firm of Mr. Mitsuru Miyamoto, located in Tokyo, Japan.
The second small mark reads: silver pure
