Help!! What does this Hallmark Mean

Postby Antman » Tue Nov 22, 2016 4:07 pm

Hi I picked up these candlestick holders up the other day. They have H.O.H. on them (Hansen I think) and a hallmark. What does this hallmark mean?
Are they sterling silver or it silver plate. Thank you for any info

In 1929 the "Common Representation of Danish Goldsmiths" (FDG) registered the "Torchmark" as a trademark to be used as a quality mark for silver-plate sold by the members only.
