The swan mark.....again

Hi, I have been reviewing the earlier posts on the swan mark struck on items of silver and the general consensus is that, other than on watch cases, the dates of use are between 1864 and 1893. If I have misinterpreted this or missed a post then I would be grateful for further guidance. However this ...

Re: Makersmarks IC and H(?)A

Hello, A similar HA mark (crown above mullet below) is listed in Grimwade’s unregistered marks section (3598) and was recorded on a snuff box assayed in 1717. I can find no record of the IC mark. A similar snuff box with the same HA mark but an assay date of 1716/17 recently appeared at auction wher...

Re: Help with Dating my Belgium Antwerp Silver

I agree that most likely late 18th century and my thoughts are possibly French, probably provincial. Montpellier? Blakstone is a more informed authority on this.

Re: Gilt trefid teaspoon, date & maker help

Personally am not one hundred percent certain that it was made in London (perhaps Dutch?), the rat tail seems to be too well defined for an item as small as a tea spoon and more what I would expect to see on a larger trefid spoon, but the absence of a full set of hallmarks, other than the makers mar...

Apologies for the incomplete response. Your spoon can be dated to circa 1690 the maker however is unknown to me.

Hi,

Here is a similar tea spoon by Jean Harache for comparison. Learn to love the spoon in its existing condition as I have for a sweetmeat fork!
