Re: Cairo, Egypt - date letter

Thank you Peter. Do you have a good source for dating Egyptian silver? I have came across different sources. One ends on 1982 and the other one is inactive (Egyptian government site).

Best wishes!

Re: Silver comb - mark - China, Japan?

I have seen the same comb in an auction catalog and it says "Silver comb Chinese export ware, Taisho Period the frame work modelled as a sleeping Geisha". But it does not seem to be right... a geisha and China??

Silver comb - mark - China, Japan?

What do you think about this comb? Is this a modern item? Looks to be silver-plated. Does anyone recognize the mark?

S with a crown and N

I have a small unidentified silver box. It has only two marks. Are these pseudo-marks or the real thing? Please advise.

Re: Elephants from Indochina

Hi Trev,

thank you for your time. Tola is a unit of mass. How is a tola connected with the 999? Is there something else to it than only mass which does not make any sense to me as one box weights approx. 100 grams.

Please advise.

Elephants from Indochina

I have these two elephant boxes which I would like to know more about. I assume they come from the first half of the XX century from Indochina. I think this might be the present territory of Kingdom of Cambodia. I also assume that they are made of silver of .999 purity. Can you identify the maker an...

Silver lighter base, probably Italy, rabbit?

I have a lighter made of silver. I have seen very similar lighters with Italian silver marks including the silver purity. Here is no other mark than this one below. It looks like a rabbit or kangaroo, - have you ever seen such mark? https://i.postimg.cc/W1nkJQBg/DSC00818.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/s2g...

Little pill box, enamel

I have found a nice little silver box. Because of the flower relief, guilloche and enamel I think it is something special. What do you think - who is the maker? https://i.postimg.cc/qqxw8jzj/DSC00779a.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/sfYTdDw7/DSC00781.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/t4qqtTm5/DSC00775.jpg

German? mark on lighter sleeve

I have a gas lighter from the 50/60 from Germany. The sleeve is made of silver 800 or 900 purity. Can someone identify the maker of it? Looks like AB or FB.

Re: 935 silver vesta - match box - maker? Origin?

Thank you for your help. The dating is rather difficult as the LK is in a oval but the silver purity is not in a cartouche. My guess would be that it was made after 1920.
