Re: help me with this swedish Mark

Everything is not in internet. The info I gave you is from a book; Svenskt silversmide 1850-1912. Unfortunately sold out and very difficult to find.

Re: help me with this swedish Mark

In my last message I anticipated that the town would be Lidköping, but no master was found. I believe. I have to change my mind. The town mark is more likely Skänninge because there there is a maker punching EF 1855-1877. His name is Edvard Fröberg, born 13.9.1827 in Norrköping and dead 1.12.1877. H...

Re: Assay Mark

Kliment Zagayevsky (Загаевский) assayed in Vilnius/Vilna/Vilno 1885-1898 and thereafter in Riga 1899-1916 (Incorrect in Postnikova #181) . The kokoshnik is left looking (1899-1908). Therefore the town is more likely Riga in Latvia. Unfortunately the maker is unknown to me. If I find him I let you kn...

Re: Tea Spoon

As said this is a mysterious mark. There are no documents known that would confirm that this С.ПБУРГЪ/С.П.БУРГЪ/ С.П:БУРГЪ (note the known different spellings) would be a town mark punched by the assaying office. Not either are documents known found showing that it would be a wholesale/retail mark p...

Re: help me with this swedish Mark

It looks like Lidköping in Sweden. The three crown mark (cat's paw) is the assay mark guaranteeing not less than 830/1000 fineness. Unfortunately I cannot find a matching maker EF or possibly EP or...?, for the moment. If I find one I revert to it later. What is the size of it? In my eyes it looks l...

Re: Tea Spoon

Odessa??? It is α (Greek alpha) for St. Petersburg. The maker's mark AK is in some sources mentioned to be Aleksandr Karpov (1898-1917 (?)), in others a to name unknown maker, so...? I believe in the latter alternative. The last mark reads SPBURG. This an interesting mark because it is also unclear ...

Re: Jewish rattle, original or fake

Kaluga's town crest is Emperor's crown above a wave at that period. Does this look like that? The assayer's initials is BC. No such assayer was ever in Kaluga. In 1873 BC was used by Viktor and Veniamin Savinsky, but they were in Moscow. BC is often seen on fakes. Cannot either find any matching mak...

Re: help me to read the mark on swedish dinner spoon

Please note that there is a "cat's paw" mark on the stem. This Three Crowns hallmark was implemented not earlier than on 1 January 1954 (not 1752 as commonly seen). The Royal Decree was set on 7 December 1752. In addition, the model/pattern is from the rococo era. For those reasons it cann...

Re: help me to read the mark on swedish dinner spoon

Sweden Uppsala 1772, but the rest is a mess, possibly Erik Lemon 1761-1800 but that is a wild guess only.

Re: twice the B.P mark

I have a rather good register regarding Norway. Unfortunately didn't find anything matching this mark. Finland and Sweden are out of question. Their marking system deviates completely to both Norway and Denmark.

Re: Russian silver PEN

I found a few more in St. P. than Jan Reimer 1908-1913: Yakov Rimmer 1908-1917 Yakov Rozhansky 1914 Yakov Rosen 1895-1917 Yakov Rotstein 1916 Anyway, as already mentioned the box and pen are not a pair. Somebody has probably paired them in hope of better profit from an unknowing buyer. Karl Bock was...

Re: Is this another false silver sign?

Yes, fake marks. The real initials in Cyrillic OC was used by Osip Sosnkovsky in Warsaw. The town mark right of 84 is pure fantasy. Not even close to Warsaw's mark etc.etc...

Re: Russian silver PEN

Please show some close ups of the marks only. It looks like the case and the pen do not match. The maker's mark seems to be ЯР, but? This mark has, anyway, nothing to do with the name on the box. As said better close-ups thank you.

Re: Silver violin who is the producer

It has nothing to do with PL #1429. In addition there is no assayer with Latin initials NE, never been. It is a complete fake.
