Re: Assistance with Interesting German Beakers

Hello, just some additional info. Recently I saw a small German beaker ("Faustbecher") with the mark of wholesaler Arthur Otto (founded 1903 in Cologne, Germany) and punched with a 13 in a square for the fineness. Which makes me believe that even if one sees e.g. a Neresheiner N in combina...

Re: Assistance with Interesting German Beakers

... a closer look at an enlargement of the second mark seems to show the gothic Neresheimer "N", which would make perfect sense. Regards, B.

Re: Assistance with Interesting German Beakers

Hello, agree with a dating of 1979 rather than 1879. The style of the engraved date also points at this. Beakers like these were and are being produced by almost every maker who made and makes Hanau style silver. The maker's mark, if the mark on the right hand side is that of a maker and not a retai...

Re: Silver candlesticks

Hello, Meyen also sold flatware and holloware made by other silverware manufacturers (F. Bahner, Vollgold), marked with the Meyen mark, acting just as a retailer. I am not aware of Meyen using production or order numbers so I suspect this was made by someone else and just sold by Meyen. Regards, Bah...

Hello, no doubt, this is the old Frankfurt skyline and the Frankfurt eagle. Not sure about the symbols at the bottom of the shield. Symbols of a guild ? 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...

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 ...

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 ...
