Re: Please help identify German maker's mark on a cigar box

Hello, have seen this mark on flatware and holloware in combination with the marks of major German silver manufacturers (Wilkens, Koch and Bergfeld etc), so I suspect this to be a retailer`s mark rather than a maker's mark. Regards, Bahner

Re: mark identification

Hello, there is some damage to the letters, that is why the name is not completely readabale. It should be read as REU, Fritz Reu from Germany. They no longer produce cups like that, I would date this to the 1960ies to 1970ies, give or take. See their homepage on fritz-reu.de Regards, Bahner

Hello, this is not the "Lloyd" pattern of Wilkens / Koch and Bergfeld first mentioned in this post, but an older one, also used on that shipline. The marks seen here also are the older ones, preceding the better known Wilkens / K&B marks on plated pieces. The symbol besides the Wilkens...

Re: Date identification of Christofle silverplated fish knife

Hello, Christofle used various marks on its flatware over the decades. I have seen marks like these on pieces in art nouveau style, produced ca. 1900 onwards. I do not doubt that Christofle used these marks well into the 20ieth century and I would date your pieces ca. 1900-1920ies, possibly even lat...

Re: Z&C fork

Helio, this is Clarfeld and Springmeyer from Hemer, Germany. See here

https://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_marks_a1884_2.html

for the mark on a silver piece.

CHS is for China-Silber, a white base metal. So in this case it is plated. Regards, Bahner
