Dutch Makers Mark HH

Postby ETH » Tue Jun 01, 2010 1:23 pm

I have a Dutch miniature silver object of a mann with a Pipe. It is only marked with a Makers Mark H.H.

First I tought it was 18 century Groningen because it is just one mark but I recently saw the mark of H. Hartman that also looks like this mark...

Can somebody help me identify the maker of this object?

There are two possibilities:
H Hartman - Schoonhoven 1889 - 1910 or
H Hooykaas - Schoonhoven 1906 - 1924
The last made many silver miniatures and if I observe the poor casting of this little man with the pipe I would suggest Hooykaas as the silversmith

Thank you for your answer. I have searched a little bit more.
I found a Dutch silver miniature site with the Maker Marks of both silversmiths.

http://www.silver-miniatures.com/nl/nederlandse-meestertekens.html

I think it must be H Hartman. when I look at the Marks.

The site you refer to is certainly not complete.
If you look it up in hallmarks dictionairy of the Netherlands (Meestertekens 1813 - 1963) there is also an exact match (no 4485 on page 225) for H Hooykaas.
I do collect dutch miniatures. I have never seen a miniature by Hartman and so many by Hooykaas.

I agree, thank you for you help.
Now I now who is the maker. Not what I hoped for but at least I know now.
