Sterling spoon unknown mark

Not sure on this who the maker is or when it dates from. Doubt it's even that old maybe Victorian? It was a bargain basement desert spoon at £3 so I couldn't pass it up! http://i61.tinypic.com/qstkpd.jpg http://i59.tinypic.com/25f7cxc.jpg The small mark looks like a fancy 'G' but is so hard to make...

Re: Provincial marks?

Thanks Trev, I've only ever seen 'AR' with a sunburst for Alex Ross for Tain/Dingwall. The odd looking sideways 'S' I haven't seen before. I take it the maker is quite scarce?

Provincial marks?

Need help to identify these marks I can't find them listed in books so they may not be British after all?

basic question about British marking

I read somewhere the date in which downward marking started and I can't for the life of me remember when it started and where I read it! It's just that I was going through some of my collection and found a P, A & W Bateman spoon dated 1805 with downward marking with the lion facing right and tho...

E.M Bjorseth

Another one for you knowledgeable folk on here I've had this spoon for a while and couldn't find out the maker at all until I came across one picture online in the Trondheim archives which gave me a rough date of 1918 when the business is pictured. Anyone know anything more about the maker? It's a l...

S.Nielsen Norwegian spoon

I can't find this maker listed, anybody know about this maker and what town the maker was from? The spoon has a date inscribed on the back of 25-11-06 so I take it it dates from around 1906? It also has a very fancy 'MSM' monogrammed on the front. http://i60.tinypic.com/2cwjy4k.jpg http://i59.tinypi...

Tiffany spoons, date help required

I found a Tiffany & Co desert spoon a while back which I thought was quite nice and then a while later saw 6 more spoons for sale in a different part of the country that matched my spoon exactly! The engraved initials of 'EJW' made it certain they were from the same set. So now I have a set of 7...

Huguenot maker? 1741 spoon

I can't find this mark listed anywhere, it's quite distinctive in shape and you can just make out a fleur-de-lys and a letter that looks like a 'C' but with a double line through the centre. The spoon is made in London in 1741. http://www.golfmk2owners.com/pictures/DSC01136a.jpg http://www.golfmk2ow...

Re: Help identifying marks for a very ornate tea service

Thanks Trev that's great news, I just wish I could tie it down to a year but it's always hard with silver plate. I've seen similar sets before but nothing as ornate as this, just as well it was silver plate otherwise it'd have taken a lottery win to get this!

Help identifying marks for a very ornate tea service

I recently acquired this tea service, sold as a Victorian service but I cannot identify the marks. Any help would be appreciated. The set was stunning and it was just something I had to have despite not having deep pockets! http://i39.tinypic.com/9iy4b6.jpg http://i44.tinypic.com/30jhert.jpg http://...
