Re: Ice Tube Pitcher, Claret jug- unknown maker

Hello and welcome, believe we might need a better picture of the mark on the left hand side, but this could be one of the marks used by German maker Quist on its plated items. As to the mark in the middle - sorry, no idea. For an explanation of the number 5 see here https://www.925-1000.com/a_platen...

Re: Help ID Maker of Sterling Marked Basket

Hello, what I find irritating is that the oldlooking marks under the word STERLING do not look punched but cast. The word STERLING as a mark was rarely used in Germany before 1945. Which leads me to believe that what we have here is a quite modern cast replica of a Hanau piece. Such replicas often c...

Re: Help identifying what this heavy flask is made of

Hello, judging by the colour of the metal and the mark I suspect pewter. Have seen marks like these on decorative pewter items not for use, just for show. The 95 is for 95 % tin, the rest may be antimon or lead, so for medical reasons it may be better not use use this. Regards. Bahner

Re: info on german box ,angel blowing trumpet on lid.

Hello, believe we all have the same problem here - the pics are very light and a little fuzzy. Hard to tell what we are seeing. Better pictures might help. My first thought was German, too, but that is really just a gut feeling, don't quote me on this. You are right, the 13 or rather the 1 only is t...

Re: not sure who the maker is on this box

Hello, the maker's mark seems to be incompletely struck, so there is guesswork involved: it looks like GW ligated, much like the mark of Gustav Wenning from Pforzheim, a maker of gold- and silverware like this one. Regards, Bahner.
