Dutch Silver Chair Hallmarks

Postby willzi_0007 » Tue Oct 16, 2018 9:43 pm

Hi there,

I'm assuming this silver chair is Dutch in origin, but can't seem to find any information on the marks on the piece. Does anyone recognise any?

Hi third image, the small mark could it be the French crab , guarantee mark for small items? The other marks I do not rekognize . The location of the marks I believe not to be Dutch pre 1814.

Peter.

Peter, thank you very much. It is indeed the crab signalling 800 purity silver. There doesn't appear to be much information on French silversmiths available on the web, but at least I can start here and try and find more information. Thanks again.
