Who is this Dutch maker?

Postby Kirils » Mon Feb 19, 2018 11:51 am

Hello. Please help me identify this Dutch maker. From what I can see it looks like MK, but I could be wrong. This item was also probed in Sweden.

Hi Kirils.

Nice oil&vinegar cruet set and I believe you are right MK (conjoined) under a crescent moon (deformed) for; Johannus Mattheus van Kempen II born in Utrecht 1792-07-22, died in Utrecht 1831-09-05. Registered in Utrecht as silversmith during 1816-1831. Son of Johannes Mattheus van Kempen (I), brother of Pieter Johannes van Kempen, father of Johannes Mattheus (III). Could you please check the set for a date letter and assay office mark and if found show us an image?

Thank you alot for your information Peter. Yes I found a year mark on a top hanndle. Sorry for the bad quality. Looks like it is 1827 if I'm right.

Yes, the script letter S for 1827, it fits the time frame for Johannus Mattheus van Kempen II, and if you find the assay office mark it should show the regional assay office letter B for Utrecht.
