Re: Help ID'ing

A quaich has two handles to enable it to be passed from one person to another. This is more likely to be a wine taster.

Possibly Malta.

Possibly Malta. I think that this ladle is Maltese, but I don’t have the Malta silver marks book to verify that. Can someone who has the book help me out please? http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/Forum/th_Ladle2.jpg http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/Forum/th_Ladle...

Re: H&S Austro-Hungarian spoon

Thank you gentlemen. It seems that no matter how many reference books I have, the mark that I am looking for is in another one!

H&S Austro-Hungarian spoon

This is an Austro-Hungarian spoon with a lovely clear maker’s mark of “H&S” but I cannot trace it anywhere. Any suggestions? http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/2015/2015b/th_HampS1-1.jpg http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/2015/2015b/th_HampS2-1.jpg

Miniature Halberd.

Can anyone suggest what this might be. It is a miniature halberd made by Atkin Brothers, measuring just 4" in length. The top spike has striations which show that is has been scratched by something hard. The spike is too short and broad to pick anything up with. Both the hook and blade have rea...

Re: Inhereted Silverplate help

You are spot on with the idea that they may be later reproductions Trev. These are Walker & Hall entre dishes made in 1906.

Merry Christmas!

Am I seeing this correctly? Does it say "W&X" in the pennant?

Re: Marks on a spoon.

Thanks Alex. That is spot on. French silver is a great gap in my knowledge, but if we all know something about something, then someone will have the answer!

Marks on a spoon.

I hope someone can help me with these French marks. They are on a rather nice little parcel gilt spoon. The maker’s mark seem to be ‘EC’ or ‘EG’ with what looks like a bird between the letters.

Re: J6 on a goblet.

There seems to be some debate about the reason for the number representing the date of manufacture being before the TJ or after it. Being just a single numeral, it would seem logical that there would need to be a method of distinguishing years from different decades. TJ6 and 6TJ therefore would repr...

J6 on a goblet.

This is a nice little goblet with a Tallinn mark from the Soviet era. Can anyone identify the ‘J6’ mark? Thank you. Paul http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/SForum/th_EG1.jpg http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/SForum/th_538ea577-63bb-4c0a-b6c8-0ead85145672.jpg

Thank you gentlemen. Another mystery solved! I really don't know much about Hanau silver, but find the subject quite intriguing. Do you know of a good book about it?

Dutch spoon?

I hope someone, possible Oel, can help me with this spoon. It appears to be of an early Dutch style, but I have no records of any marks which might help to identify it. It is 19.8cm in length and weighs 60g. Thanks. Paul. http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/Forum/th_IMG_4466.jpg http...
