Re: Anyone recognize this "J Morub" signature, likely Native American

Agree with Silverly - I read that signature as "J Morris".

Re: Help with identifying cutlery set

Hi Irma I'm not an expert in the area of Silverplate, but the marks on the knife blades are interesting, and may provide a rough date. To quote from this page here (http://www.cutlers-hallamshire.org.uk/history/brearley-and-stainless-steel): "The Firth-Brearley Steel Syndicate was established t...

Re: Unknown maker - Exeter (?) spoon

Cheers Trev. Have had a look at a William Auld mark, and agree it could be him. Date range consistent too.

Thanks

Unknown maker - Exeter (?) spoon

Hi Missing the Lion Passant and a date letter. Town mark looks like Exeter though (happy to be corrected if it is Edinburgh!). Looks like a male duty mark too, for date range. Any idea? http://i66.tinypic.com/348ksqe.jpg http://i64.tinypic.com/2q8ubva.jpg Thanks in advance for everyone's time Cheers...

Re: Maker - Austrian spoon

Thanks AG2012 - agree with your conclusion, and the mark fits.

Maker - Austrian spoon

Hello all

A fairly standard fiddle back shaped Austrian spoon, assayed in Vienna after 1867 (from the assay mark). Maker is either HS or SH (depending on which way up the mark was stamped). Any idea? Picture below (hopefully!)

Identification - Unknown Maker

Hi all It's been a while between visits. About 7 years in fact! Anyway, life moves in mysterious ways and I've re-discovered my passion for sterling silver and hall marking! I've got a fairly plain fiddle back spoon. It was purchased in a (motley?) collection of spoons, the rest of which have been i...

As for your comment re type of soldier, to my eye he looks to be an infrantryman, European, circa 1700-1800. The bayonet was only introduced in about 1700 into the British army

Unknown napkin ring

Dear all Please find following pictures of a napkin ring I picked up about a year ago. While there are not any traditional sterling markings (well, as far as I am aware) it certainly appears to be silver. Any idea as to history? I reckon North America / early 20th century? http://i245.photobucket.co...

Very hard to date silverplate pieces with any certainty as they did not get struck with a date letter (unlike British sterling). Periods of operation, periods of use of different versions of marks, style, are your best indicators. Also, it is EP without a doubt - there is no Lion Passant etc to sign...

Hi Shirley

It might be worth writing to the Silver Society of Australia with your query - they are quite helpful and have a number of authors published on Australian silver among their members
