Re: need help with the mark

. Some explanation why I was surprised by it. The same rules apply in France and in Belgium In France / Belgium, retailers are not allowed to use a lozenge shaped / a barrel shaped, that is only reserved for a silversmith. Instead, the retailers use a square or something else. When someone does this...

Re: Confusing hallmarks on a silver wine taster

. Both marks (A 800 and possibly maker`s mark next to it) are consistent with Belgian marks. What about the Belgian marks? I defer to the Belgian experts, but would agree that the taster was probably marked when imported to Belgium. Come across this by accident while browsing this site If you are st...

Re: That "other" Christofle solid silver mark

It does not seem logical to me, if you have to make your big success shortly before a new breakthrough, and that you then opt for your firts silver makers mark that you know it is based on opposition.
