Spanish Cordoba ?

Postby joho » Sun Jun 09, 2019 2:28 am

Hi there. Can anyone help identify this silver box that looks to date from early 19th century. The hallmark looks to be for Cordoba, but I may well be wrong on this. There are two other marks that are presumably the maker's mark and the assay master mark (L. ID? and ARJAS or ARLAS). The box measures 6cm x 4.5cm x 2.5cm. Many thanks. John.

Good afternoon joho. The mark of the lion is the one used by the city of Córdoba. The other mark corresponds to the silversmith Frncisco de Parias Alvárez, examined as silversmith in 1864. The other mark (L.AL ....) corresponds to the assayer and I do not have it registered. I attach an image with the full name. a greeting.

Buenas tardes joho. La marca del león es la que utilizó la ciudad de Córdoba. La otra marca corresponde al platero Frncisco de Parias Alvárez, examinado como maestro platero en 1864. La otra marca (L.AL....) corresponde al ensayador y no lo tengo registrado. Adjunto una imagen con el nombre completo. Un saludo
