Hi Myriam, me again :-) For me it looks like Norway marks. "830S" is very common for Norway marks around 1800-1920 pp. Also the second marking "Handsmde" looks like (translated in English) "Handsmade" also a mark I have sometimes found on such pieces.

Hi Myriam,

the Rainwater book on american silver shows the company working in the 1950s. I have learned from other forums that they seem to be in bussiness within the 70s. Unfortunateley there are very very limited informations on them.

Best regards

SIAP was an Italian manufacturer that closed down in the mid 1930s. The 800 mark is a usual italian mark for the purity of the silver.
If you look at google you will find some online auctions regarding "SIAP"

Hello Myriam,

Canada is unfortunately a country I am totally without any literature for :-(

First of all I would like to thank all who have taken some time to look on this "mystery". The marking of the german town of Lüneburg is showing a lion (according to Jan Davis) but it is looking to the left not to right as my hallmark. Very confusing.....it is neither British (for sure) nor Dutch (...
