Hello!
I do not know what this pattern is called.
But this pair is engraved in 1938.
Regards

It's the 'Iris' pattern by Th. Olsens. Not where I can get to my references, but believe it was introduced in the early 20th century - maybe 1920s? If I recall correctly, Olsens used the Magnus Aase mark after he acquired the company around 1904...

My notes show 'Iris' as designed by Einar Olsen, introduced in 1928...

Thank you Serg1975 and Cheryl. Here's a link to the Norwegian company Arven that has some of the history of Magnus Aase and Theodor Olsen and generally agrees with what others have to say about the two companies: https://translate.google.com/translate? ... rev=search

The first image in this thread shows an IN before the silver quality mark 830. Can anyone tell what IN means in this mark? Thank you in advance.
