Re: Kelo Haandarbej(i)de 830S Necklace- who is that

Hi,
The language is Danish, so this is most likely a Danish piece. Haandarbejde = hand work, and Kelo must be the name of the makers/ firm.
Both Denmark and Norway stamp 830S (830/1000 silver)

Hi,
Yes,n it's true that Skoglund & Co uses GG, but according to the book "Stempler" by Norges Gullsmedforbund (The association of Norwegian goldsmiths), this mark was registered in 1971, and I think this piece is older than that.

Sorry, I read the mark as G.B.
I can't find anyone with the initials G.G. in my books.

Both the N in the square and the motif suggests Norway. It might be Gunnar Bjørnerud, Larvik, Norway, 1904-1980

From 1990 this is the mark of Nils Hansens Sølvvarefabrikk, Oslo.
Former Oslo Sølvvareverksted, Oslo (1926- 1990)
This pattern came in 1935, and is called "Odel".

Hi,
This could be the mark of Nils Martin Elvik, Oslo., b. 1853 d. 1935. He stamped the N and E together like this. However, there used to be a horse shoe around the initials, so I'm not sure.
Best regards,

Hi,
You are quite right. This cross is made by Brødrene Lohne, Norway. 830 S means 830/ 1000 silver. Nr 104 means number 104 and is a product or type number.
Best regards,

Hi, The inscription could also be Norwegian. We would write it in excactly that way. If we suppose this item is close to 100 years old, wouldn't a Dane write paa and not på ?

Hi,
Yes, the Three Crowns in an oval is the Swedish import mark. Your candle holders could have been made in either Denmark or Norway. Both countries stamp with 830S.

Well, now you know a lot about your spoon: It was made by Hans Hohles Sølvvarefabrikk (Hans Hohle's Silverware Factory) between 1927-1936, and afterwards stamped by the local silversmith Aslak Sørensen Hodne.
It was not uncommon for a local silversmith to stamp items made elsewhere.

Hello, Both Denmark and Norway stamp their silver with 830S which means that it contains 830/1000 pure silver. Sterling is 925/1000. The 3 crowns is a Swedish control mark, so this item has probably been imported to Sweden once. It looks as if the Swedish mark is stamped over another mark, maybe the...

Hello,
According to a new book by Per Bredo Østby, called "Norske gull-og sølvstempler gjennom tidene 1500-1950"(Norwegian gold- and silvermarks, 1500-1950), this mark was used by Aslak Sørensen Hodne, Kristiansand, b. 1858-d. 1936

I can't say for sure if they were bought together or not, since I haven't bought the item from a store. However, there is some sort of screw mechanism both on the holder and on the dish. Hope you can see it in the pictures. http://usera.imagecave.com/many45/Silver/IMG_56371.JPG http://usera.imagecav...
