Re: Are these spoons from London? George Gray

I understand the matter of transporting a mark from a small object to a large one, but it is a bit difficult for me to understand why is missing the leopard head (city) instead of the king's head (duty).

Re: Unknown Mark That Has Stumped Me... Please Help.

The typical punching of Messina until 1826 consists of three marks. 1 stamp of the Consul with the year 2 stamp of the City 3 silversmith's stamp https://i.postimg.cc/234LPWwp/MESSINA.jpg On your plate the Messina crest is a bit strange, but the other two brands seem correct. On the other hand, if i...

Re: Probably French Silver Coffee Pot

I agree with Legrandmogol's opinion, the mark on the right simulates that of Venice in the 18th century, but the coffee pot does not seem at all from that period.
Is there no other mark?
Can you show us a detail of the repair?
Are you sure it's solid silver?
Best regards

Re: German? Dognose Rattail spoon

It's really odd that Theo has never seen such a hallmark. It seems to me that the surface of the spoon is a bit strange.
Could you post an enlargement of the "tremolierstrich"?
