Silver Muffineer / Caster Origin Country & Age

Postby sophanome1 » Thu May 16, 2019 1:57 pm

I have a silver muffineer or caster. I cant make heads or tails or the three hallmarks despite searching. Any help to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone see possible Hanau Psuedo s449 "Chalice" w/dots in right mark...one dot clear at top (or right) and one obscurred? Bottom (or left) dots not readable.

Mark 1 could be s448 (crown). Not sure, but Mark 2 might be a poor version of s455.

Hi,
J. D. SCHLEISSNER SÖHNE, HANAU, c.1900.
Chalice and pellets mark number s449 see here:

Hanau silversmiths used various combinations of marks, so one mark is enough for positive identification.
Regards
