Re: 17th century round silver plate

No doubt I am mistaken, but could this item be shown up side down. It looks sort of like 816 at what is shown as the top.

Re: Another Unidentified Box

Its a planished/hammered finish to those areas, no letters at all in there. If you google Girls Association badges you should see this same design and no lettering to the front, just the GA to the reverse.

Re: Another Unidentified Box

Looking forward to hear what may be said about this box because I have a "GA" coin just like yours and know nothing about it.

Re: Marks: 975, 9 / 5 or 9 / S mark? Upsidedown Anchor? - Silver Filigree Bracelet, Presume Contintental

It looks like 917 to me which should be a start for the location of where the bracelet was made.

Prague Castle Souvenir Spoon 800 Silver

The stylized version of the Prague Castle is convincing enough for a souvenir item. And I've identified the control mark, so is there any information that can be passed on about the maker or manufacturer & etc. Thank you in advance. https://i.postimg.cc/hjS7SWjq/praguecastlesouvenirspoon.jpg

The brothers were Donald Antaya and John Baptiste Antaya III.

Re: Lacquered Box With Sterling Inset Made in Italy

The silver quantity was definitely an unknown and being resin based is not surprising, along the lines of so many weighted items in which the silver is not far from being a foil. I do appreciate receiving these details. Thank you both

Re: Masters? Coffin End Tablespoon

Tough one. The shape of the cartouche is the key imho... The first two letters look to me like Ma or Mc or maybe Mo. Might it be continental? As you say the shape of the cartouche is the key, so now I'm leaning heavily towards Masters as the makers name on this spoon. There is just the slightest in...
