Re: 17th century English spoons reworked in the 19th century.

Thank you all for your observations, very enlightening. Again seems to be the age old problem, do we retrain what has been passed down, sell it, or bring it up to-date? For those rising up the social ladder, how to look respectable with little cost. Although have seen a few examples of appraisers re...

17th century English spoons reworked in the 19th century.

Good day, Was reading through some old posts on English and French spoons when I spotted a comment made by Trev on a 2008 thread about an English spoon. He stated that "when originally made would have been plain, the decoration is a later Victorian addition." Having recently acquired a Ebe...

Re: 17th century Norwegian spoon?

Looks like it's worth a bump.

Matt can you rotate image three to the 12 o'clock 3, 6 positions to see if it sparks an idea from anyone?

Re: JFT in a crossed Pickaxe and Shovel

Good evening, Was also confused by this mark then found an entry in silverflatewarefashions.com for E.J. Towle Mfs. Co. Note the two marks have different positions for the same letter. T over E and J then E over J and T. https://www.sterlingflatwarefashions.com/Silversmiths/SST4.html Hope this helps...

Re: 1730's coin silver spoons?

Good evening, Looking at the image with the marks, to the left there appears to be to be a partial city mark for Hamburg Germany. Was looking through the list of Hamburg marks on this site, very few of the cartouche conform to the shape of the gate except Johann J Wienickle 1858 - 1865. The letter i...

Re: Mysterious Marks on Gothenburg Spoon

Thanks Trev, Always happy to help when I can. Going through Tacitus.nu more slowly today, it was stated that regimental standards had two different motifs. On the obverse was the provincial coat of arms and the reverse were the Royal cypher. Some the provincial coats of arms do bear a coronet at the...

Appears to be another good lead. After reading your post Trev, in English titled: The Swedish Cavalry Regiments of the Napoleonic Wars by Bjorn Bergerus. Most of the units recruitment was through the Crown's Allotment System Office. Although there was one unit made up of Nobles referred to as The Fl...

Re: Missing town mark

Good Day Matt, Right that IR in oval cartouche appears to be John Robertson of Newcastle. This particular mark has been seen between 1795 - 1797. Upper case G in clipped cartouche is the Newcastle date letter for 1797. From my reading here had assumed that the lack of a city assay office mark took p...

Re: Who’s mark is underneath George Ferris’ mark?

Thank you Phil much appreciated. Brings up a few questions: Did Father and son use the same makers mark registered in London then at a later date in Exeter? Appears that both men were alive in the circa 1815 time frame, so in Matt's case did the father or son use old stock to create the finished dec...

Re: Who’s mark is underneath George Ferris’ mark?

After re-reading Phil's London entry on GF it does say that this mark was seen from 1798 - 1819. The comment about about the over stamp does appear on the end of that same column.

My apologies.

Good day gentlemen, Am particularly interested in your discussion since I had just be doing some research on George Ferris myself. As I read Phil's comments on Ferris, he stated in the Exeter section that his marks had been seen from 1812 - 1832. Also noted: flatware maker mentioned in Exeter record...

Re: This one has me puzzled!

Looking this makers mark again it appears to read either JP conjoined, JHP, or JH. There is a post on 925 for a York partnership of John Hampston & John Prince. This is not their mark but gives you some idea. Also looking through Theo's site nothing came up on JHP in particular but you can see o...
