Re: WMF Modell for Deco Forks

Hello, pattern 2000, no name to the pattern, first listed in the internal "WMF Mitteilungen" in March 1930 (!) as new, which strikes me as odd, I would have dated this to the middle of the 1920ies. Maybe it took years from first idea to actual production. Regards, Bahner

Re: Need help - Germany, WW1

Hello, believe the maker is Paul Ditges (do not have access to my books right now). You are absolutely right about the dedication. It reads: Marine-Oberstabsarzt der Reserve / Doktor Otto / seinem lieben Marine-Oberassistenzarzt der Reserve / Doktor Wallé / zur freundlichen Erinnerung / Brügge 1915/...

Hello, in NO WAY did I want to question your knowledge on eastern European marks ! Just wanted to get the ball rolling once more. Currently I do not have access to my Scheffler. Czikak did not help ? (never got around to getting a copy and never checked whether it is online by now). Regards, Bahner

Re: How old is this fork??

Helo, this is the mark of Heinrich Boeker and Co. from Solingen, Germany, founded in 1867, if I remeber exactly. I would date this to around 1900, give or take two decades. Is the handle hollow or solid ? Regards, Bahner

Re: Sugagtong where from???

Hello, I would not exclude the possibilty that this is a mark from one of the small (formerly German( towns of the eastern baltic states. This would also go well with the name Burmeister. Regards, Bahner

Re: Wagner 12 - maker/age help

Hello, indeed some German flatware makers plated their 800 fine pieces to make it more shiny and "silver like". Plus it was easier to polish and it did not tarnish just as fast. Don*t know when they started doing this (before 1945 ? after ?) but it continued well into the 1970ies (maybe un...

Re: German 925 Sterling Tray

Hello, don`t see a maker`s mark here. The word Sterling was rarely used as a mark by German makers before 1945, so i would date this - very roughly -to 1960ies till today. Regards, Bahner

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
