Re: 1798-1809 French Tongs with Unknown CAB Maker

Wow. Blakstone! Thank you thank you. I would've been grateful for a maker, but all of the information beyond that was very interesting to read. How kind of you and the others who helped me characterize this simple pair of tongs.

1798-1809 French Tongs with Unknown CAB Maker

Hi there, I could use some help with these French tongs please. They have some fun marks on them besides the maker mark. Is the one mark an ear?! I look forward to any assistance you may be able to provide and I am grateful as always for the feedback. Thanks! Best, Nate https://abload.de/img/screens...

Victor Boivin Fork and Knife Set for 12

Hi there, I know it is probably a long shot, but looking for any help on the arms on this large extremely heavy set by Victor Boivin (1897-). 2000 grams on the set, so these are not insubstantial. The arms seem to be a marriage(?) under the coronet of a Marquis? One shield is three eagles displayed....

House of Bourbon Cypher on Emile Puiforcat Servers

Hi there, I found these servers-- a fish slice and some other server. These are the heaviest I've ever held at 310 grams on the pair. The style is very plain. Marked with the Minerva and the Emile Puiforcat EP mark. The real standout is the cypher engraved on the handles. It bears strong similarity ...

Re: 1809-1819 Silver French Plate or Tray

A friend (I know he'll follow this thread with interest) recently found another piece of silver from the same era by Gabriel-Jacques-André Bompart. It has a very similar monogram. Do we dare to hope the owners are the same? Has anyone else run into this LP monogram before on this era of Paris silver...

1809-1819 Silver French Plate or Tray

Hi Friends, This one is considerably difficult because of the partially struck mark that appears to be ?CC. It's got the 1809-19 Right facing cock in the reserve and the middle guaranty mark of the same. Very nice large and heavy gauge item about the exact size as a dinner plate. Egg and dart on the...

Re: PJL Mark on a Very Large French Silver Spoon

Thanks again! I lived Uptown 2005-10 getting my PhD at TU. And I started my little shop, "Crescent City Connection" there too! Obviously named after New Orleans. I miss the people. DC people aren't the same..

Stay safe!
