Antique Pendant Identification

Postby Barnabus60 » Thu Nov 23, 2017 9:56 pm

Hello - I am reaching out to see if I might be able to acquire some assistance in the identification of the below pendant.

I believe the pendant is English although I am not entirely sure. My apologies for posting within the London Hallmark group, although I don't know exactly where to begin - Apparently this pendant came to the United States from Europe during WWII. It has the 935 mark along with 3 hallmarks in a linear presentation. The hallmarks are extremely small so I have attempted to capture detailed images to show each although I fear they are still not high enough quality for identification purposes. Any assistance is appreciated, many thanks.

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

The 'XX' mark identifies the Berlin wholesaler Willhelm Müller.

See: http://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_marks_a1884_7.html

The mark below it is the 'Laurin' mark, in use 1934 to around 1938. It was a guarantee mark used by certain German manufacturers.

I'm not sure about the maker's mark, but you could try searching here: http://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_marks_a1884.html

This is very helpful - thank you for the guidance! I didn't see anything that jumped out as the maker but will keep looking. Great to be able to identify the area it came from, and time period - thank you.
