Re: Help Identify Marks (likely Europe/Dutch)

Qrt.S -

Under these circumstances, in my opinion the best policy is to provide as many facts on the issue as possible, allow the contributors to state their point of view in a civil manner, and let the readers make up their own minds!

Re: Help Identify Marks (likely Europe/Dutch)

Hi Dad - Of course it is made earlier than the Russian hallmark's year 1773. It lacks the Russian maker's mark because it is not made in Russia but imported from Hamburg/Germany to Russia. I have said a thousand times and say it again: If an object object carries only a Russian hallmark but no maker...

Re: Help Identify Marks (likely Europe/Dutch)

Hi - Before that the customs brought imported goods to the assaying office in order to test it for legal minimum fineness i.e. 84 zolotniki. If approved, it was hallmarked and the import granted. Therefore there is no maker's mark on the cup. The assayer Ivan Frolov was active in St. Petersburg 1738...

Re: GU Hovedvandsaeg 1750?

Hi Aguest - now it is clear what it is - a vinaigrette and not a hovedvandsaeg. Hovedvandsaeg were in the scandinavian countries used - vinaigrettes in France, England, Italy etc. In this counties you have to look for the marks - I opt for Italy. typical hvedvandsaeg: https://abload.de/img/p1090965r...

Hi Aguest - please clean the marks and make sharp photos! I enclose some Danish marks in the from you mentioned time span - but the quality of your photos is much to bad to say something... and please show a photo of the object! The country of origin (form, type, style) could be a great help. https:...

Re: Silver salt cellar

Hi madej -

the townmark on the salts is as far as I can see (the reason why photos from the marks should be bigger and clearer) from St. Petersburg. Heskes is from Moscow.
Effery detail is important: form of the cartouche, font, dot or no dot etc.

It is still a riddle...

Re: RUSSIAN SILVER SPOON

Hi - just to remember: the 9th Moscow Artel (1910-16) worked only in art nouveau and traditional style (tea-strainers, sugar tongs, spoons). The 2nd, 5th, 11th, 13th, 14th and 15th Artel worked also only in art nouveau style. Maybe you should change your mind based on the facts..... Regards Goldstein
