Swedish date letter

Hi All. I have a Swedish silver spoon with the apparent date mark being J5. In all my references there appears to be no letter J in any silver date mark ie there is an I and then a K, but no J! Would be grateful for any comments. Many thanks. John

Re: Maker of German silver egg cups

Many thanks Bahner, AG and Trev - much appreciated!
Any ideas as to approximate age/date of the cups? From Trev's Borse report it seems he was working around 1900.

Maker of German silver egg cups

Hi all. Can anyone help identify the maker of these rather unusual German silver egg cups. They are about 4.3cm high and are made from quite heavy gauge silver. They are marked to the base as follows: 800, crescent moon and crown and makers mark U with superimposed V? or even a cojoined M. Any help ...

Amsterdam Caddy Spoon?

Can anyone help to identify this caddy spoon please. It looks like Amsterdam around 1805 to me.... but the marks don't seem quite right. Many thanks. John. http://i68.tinypic.com/a5bb8.jpg http://i63.tinypic.com/2gvpoid.jpg http://i63.tinypic.com/2gvpoid.jpg

Re: Southern Suburbs Horticultural Society Medal

Both Capetown and Johannesburg have suburban areas colloquially known as the 'southern suburbs'. I don't know much about horticulture, but some of the plants on the medal look like protea, in which case Capetown would be most likely. Regards John

Maker KD below a crown

Hi All. I have a smallish decorative spoon that looks Dutch in style. Makers mark only KD below a crown. From my limited resources it could be for Klaas Djurrema. As always I am a little concerned about false marks. Would be grateful for any comments. Many thanks. John http://i65.tinypic.com/1ywh07....

Re: Is this spoon English?

Yes - it is the crest that mainly makes me inclined to think it is English. However there are also examples of decorated Hanoverian spoons with thread stems from 1st half 18th century, I think mainly by Huguenot silversmiths. I did wonder about John le Sage as he has marks IS below a crown, but none...

Is this spoon English?

Hi All I am trying to identify where this teaspoon was made and if possible who the maker might be. The shape of the spoon is typical English Hanoverian and I would say it dates 1740/50. However - the front of the stem has a reeded edge and there is a moulded leaf? design at the end of the handle an...

Re: Gmund or Austro Hungarian ?

Thanks AG. Are you saying that the beakers were made in Gmund and then moved to the Austro Hungarian empire where they were marked with the co-joined VR ? Regards

Gmund or Austro Hungarian ?

Hi All. I have 2 similar beakers which appear to have hallmarks for both Gmund and the old Austro Hungarian Empire. The Gmund mark is the unicorn head facing left and the Austro Hungarian mark is a co-joined VR which I think may be a duty mark. Both beakers are stamped with the 13 standard mark and ...

Re: 18th Century snuff box

Many thanks Wolfgang. I have followed up on your comments and have indeed found the mark for Jean Malquis le Quin - also another mark for him registered in1735. But have you any suggestions on what the other marks on the box are? Thanks again.

18th Century snuff box

There are 3 sets of hallmarks struck 3 times, one on the inside base, once on the inside of the cover and once on an inside wa...

Leeuwarden ?

Hi all. Can anyone help identify town, date and maker of this tablespoon. The marks indicate Leeuwarden, but I may well be wrong. The back of the bowl is engraved : Bakkers Gilde and Lepel 1783. And also a crest, presumably of the Bakkers Gilde. It is 20cm long. As always with Dutch spoons I am a li...

Provincial Wine Label ?

Hi. Can anyone help determine by whom and where this wine lable was made? It is crescent shaped and engraved PORT. Looks Georgian. Stamped with makers mark three times to the back. IM or possibly WI. No other marks. Many thanks John http://i66.tinypic.com/1zr0xnb.jpg http://i64.tinypic.com/2z671xf.j...
