Re: Is this an enamel Italian Fork?

Hi Vickie
What do you mean by
does look like the Padua mark, with the outside lozenge shape
.
I can't make out anything in the photo you posted.
Can you describe what you see ?

Re: Is this an enamel Italian Fork?

However the terminal represents the "corno ducale" which was the hat of the Doge of Venice.

Re: 800M 875M

Maybe you are right or maybe not.
From the contributions that have been collected I have not been able to form a certain and incontrovertible opinion.
My gut feeling leans more towards a German than a Belgian tankard.
Only gut feeling

Re: 800M 875M

I thank everyone for their contribution.
However, the question seems without a certain solution.
I thought I'd overlook the hallmarks, just looking at the style.
Searching the internet I seem to have found more German than Belgian mugs similar to this one.
I would opt for Germany.

Re: 13" shallow dish; CR or RC mark

I believe that in almost every country there is an acid manufacturer for testing precious metals. You have to inform yourself in your country or on the internet.

Re: 13" shallow dish; CR or RC mark

First of all I must say that all the tests you have listed do not give me the certainty that it is silver and I believe that several others think so. In particular around the engraved letters it seems to see some pink color. Could you do a more convincing test, perhaps with the proper acid? You defi...

800M 875M

The issue of the 875M and 800M hallmarks has already been debated some time ago in a post whose photos have disappeared https://www.925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=24296&p=58551&hilit=875M#p58551 The question remained unsolved: Germany, Belgium or whatever ? I found a glass jug w...

Re: Packfong

So my doubts are confirmed, if the base metal is white, which involves the presence of nickel, then the artifact cannot be prior to around 1830. Even the silvering suggests an object from the mid-19th century. The bucket is also silvered inside and this seems to rule out the mercury silvering proces...

Packfong

Hello everyone I recently found a silver metal holy water bucket. Obviously it has no hallmark and therefore it is difficult to date it. The shape is typical of the eighteenth century, and is certainly handcrafted, but it could have been made even later. One thing that makes me think it is later tha...

Re: Italian Silver

I'm sorry but I have no news other than those I have already published. Evidently, since the box was donated in 1871, John Sutton worked as a plant manager in previous years, but I don't know how many. It appears that some machinery was purchased by the Fairbairn firm of Leeds in the early 1850s, an...

Re: Is this Silver and is it from uk? :)

I've seen this kind of marks on a siver plate tray.
Can you post the photo of the whole object?
Can you take a test to see if it's silver or not?

Re: Silver item 17-18th century

Although these containers are usually made of pewter, the color makes me think it is bronze or brass.
I could be wrong, of course.
