Re: Sugar Nips - Purportedly c.1760 - English or Continental?

I hate to ignore marks, but I would ask you this...does the Stag Head emblem appear to be stamped? To me, it does not match the primary design elements and seems to be applied offset on what may have been a blank reserve...therefore personalization or customized for a particular buyer? And if it is...

Pair of Dutch(?) or Hanau gilt spoons - Period or 19th C. ?

Good morning I have a pair of cast gilt figural spoons,I believe the style is Dutch but I'm not sure if they are of they are of the 18th Century period or a late 19th Century remake. Please could anyone assist to identify the maker? Both spoons have the same marks. https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg...

Sugar Nips - Purportedly c.1760 - English or Continental?

Hi all, I have put this in the English (London) silver section, as that what I think it purports to be. However as you will see I have a few questions as to its age and origination. (Please move to a different section if appropriate) https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pi...

Re: Coronet ID - English or continental type?

An English viscount's coronet would normally show eight or nine "pearls" along the upper edge, but though it only shows seven pearls, the coronet shown here is within the bounds of identifiability as an English viscount's coronet. Just my two pence worth. David Many thanks for your advice...

Coronet ID - English or continental type?

Hello, Please could someone ID the type of coronet that is engraved on the Lid of an early 20th century Walker and Hall dish. The circlet has 7 pearls which makes me wonder if it is in fact a continental coronet? (The monogram appears to be two 'M's intertwined) Kind regards, Simon https://www.925-1...

Re: Bread Fork 'R&S S EP'

Thanks Trev, I did wonder looking at the dates if the maker was too early for the style, and knowing the plethora of undocumented makers that are out there - I'm sure there are a fair few others over the 19th/20th centuries with the initials 'R&S'.
Best,
Simon
