Re: What is the purpose of markings on brass (?) spoons

Hello, my guess is as good as yours. This type of spoon was not uncommon in Germany either, usually dating from the late 18th to the middle of the 19th century, with some makers even later. I suspect a production around 1830-1850 and wonder if this was not made from white metal / German silver or si...

Re: german silver cup identification

Hello, just a gut feeling really but I would date this to ca. 1820/1830, give or take a decade or two. The style of the cup is too modern to be much older. Believe the 13 to be authentic and the makers and/or city mark just to be badly struck, not overstruck with something else. As to the engraving,...

Re: IAL (Ascribed Julius A. Lemore) Striegau German Silesia

Hello, yes, this is Lemor. The fineness of 70 rather than 12 or 13 Lot was introduced when the metric system was being introduced in Germany since the 1850ies. So I would date this around 1860, give or take. The Striegau city mark rather than the Breslau city mark was used by Lemor, for reasons unkn...

Re: Maker of silver spoons

Hello, this is from Berlin. I do not have access to Scheffler right now, so I cannot be more exact. The D on the left hand side is the letter of the second warden, the mark in the middle is the Berlin city mark with the letter of the first warden, the mark on the right hand side is that of the maker...

Re: What kind of knife?

Hello, the 12 stands for 12 Lot, but the use of this fineness was not limited to Germany. This is probably a fruit knife. Regards, Bahner

Re: Munich/Theodor Heiden?

Hello, believe Blachian to be the maker. Heiden also used the Kindl, as other Munich makers did and do, but in combination with his initials. The Kindl is used by modern Munich makers for traditional reasons. Regards, Bahner

Re: Maker I.D. please

Hello, not sure what the Hamburg guild would demand but it should have been 12 or 13 Lot, which equals 750/1000 or 812/1000 parts fine. 900 was not in use in Germany at that time. Regards, Bahner

Re: Maker I.D. please

Hello, cannot read the maker's mark either. But a concessionist's mark would only be necessary if the object had actually been made by a concessionist. If the master had made it, no concessionist was involved and no concessionist's mark necessary. Regards, Bahner

Re: Tremolierstich

Hello, your questions can only be answered in very general terms. Usually German guilds oversaw the punching of hallmarks and control of fineness. It was pretty much up to them when or if the many local rules and regulations were inforced. There is no pattern where control was stricter than in other...

Hello, I see nothing that connects this to Hanau, the piece was quite crudely done. Btw Hanau makers were not exempt from German hallmarking laws. I feel a non European origin of this piece is also possible. Regards, Bahner
