Re: IS THIS A EARLY ALEXANDER STURM SPOON?

Hello, looks indeed like the Sturm clover. JLN / DLN (?) would be a retailer, no idea though. Not sure what you mean about "early". 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...

Re: German Silver Marked 800 Only?

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

Re: Help with mark identification (silver spoon)

Hello, Steinkopff is just the retailer who originally sold this, no idea who he was. Maker is Koch und Bergfeld from Bremen, Looks like one of the patterns designed by Hugo Leven for that company shortly after 1900. The Koch und Bergfeld mark is the incompletely struck sign left of the 800. Compare ...

Re: Theodor Heiden II

Hello, this certainly looks like one of the marks used by the Heiden workshop. The mark with the TH and the figure of the "Muenchner KIndl" is incompletely struck, but I am not aware of another Munich gold- and silversmith of that period with those or similiar initials. Regards, Bahner
