Re: 800 Individual Salt Cellar Frame

Hello, Hanau is certainly a possibility, but we need sharper images of the mark from all angles, I am afraid. Regards, Bahner

Re: Glass inkwell with a silver lid

Hello, these are the marks of Breidenstein and Renaud from Frankfurt, founded in 1889. The mark on the left hand side is incompletely struck. It is an image of pliers, below should be letters B and R, invisible here. Follows the image of a lion, lying down. I do not know how long the company was act...

Re: WTB Glass inkwell with a silver lid

Hello, have seen objects by Binder with production numbers around 65000 that by their style can be dated to the late 1920ies or early 1930ies. That would be my guess here, too. Regards, Bahner

Re: Stork & Sinsheimer? Help with mark

Hello, little is known about Berg. Active since the first half of the 1850ies I believe that the production of small silverware (I am not aware of larger pieces or of flatware) went well into the 1920ies. There was (and maybe still is) a jeweller Berg and Co in Stuttgart, possibly this very company ...

Re: Help with mark please?

Hello, this is one of many variants of the Bruckmann eagle, compare here https://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_marks_a1884_2.html The pattern was in production pretty much from beginning to end of the company. I tend to believe that the eagle in a circle was used until the early 1920ies only, just a gut ...

Re: Miniature silver jug with strange lid (HALLMARKS & PURPOSE?)

Hello, this is a candle wick holder. As you stated 12 L. SILBER is for "12lötiges Silber", equals 750/1000 fine. This can be very roughly dated to 1850-1870. It will be near impossible to identify the maker, H may be his initial, no idea though. The engraving refers to the German city of F...

Re: Austrian (?) chalice identification

Hello, turns out there IS a book which deals with Czech artists and I had it on my shelves all those years .... HG is most likely the company of Heinrich (Jindrich) Grünfeld (1888-1952), active in Prague and known for making ecclesiastical silver objects for various religions. Believe the dates give...

Re: Austrian (?) chalice identification

Hello and welcome ! Indeed Austria, any time between 1867 and 1922, when the use of these marks was discontinued. I see the letter C right of the head, which ist the letter of the Prag assay office, so this is from the Bohemian part of the former k.k. monarchy. The letter left of the head should be ...

Re: Abstract Jewelry

Hello, interesting piece. Just offering this as a possibility: this could read "Mode Aktuell" (roughly: current fashion), in fanciful script and incompletely struck. I would date this to the 1970ies to 1980ies, possibly a little later. The style would fit that period. As has been stated be...

Re: B. Neresheimer & Söhne Hanau

Sorry, I should have been more precise. I was referring to the old maker's marks, not the Neresheimer-N. This was no doubt used by Neresheimer only. Just checked with an old catalogue of Nereheimer's (well, not really old, it is from 1985...): the statues are listed under No. 11805 (left) and 11806 ...
