Re: Strange task 5

I posted five questions just to test how reliable the information obtained from two tablets owned by the Como museum was. I received some answers to my questions and I thank all those who collaborated. Then you asked me what is the whole idea trying to identify marks on metal junk? I tried to explai...

Re: Strange task 5

Of course the one who made the tablet did not take it from the sky, but from a silver object with that mark. Below you can see it in comparison with Rosenberg's picture. https://i.postimg.cc/T51XyzJd/paragone.jpg The point that is important to me, is not the similarity between the real mark and the ...

Re: Strange task 5

Hi Qrt.S The matter is a bit complicated. Studying the Parma's marks of the eighteenth century I realized that I never found a hallmark identical to the drawing published on the different books (Divis, Tardy, Donaver Dabbene, etc.), but only a few marks that only resemble the drawing. Why? https://i...

Re: Strange task 5

Hi
Thanks for cooperation.
As I said in "strange task 1" It is a collection of metal cuttings next to each of which there is the name of a city.
It is not possible to know which other marks there could be on the piece from which it was cut.

Re: Strange task 1

Thank you both for your reply. It is a collection of metal cuttings next to each of which is the name of a city. My impression is that it is a rather naive collection. Italian hallmarks are correctly identified but foreign ones, from what emerges from the expert opinion, are identified by hearsay. I...

Re: Strange task 2

Thank you both for your reply.
The matter gets complicated and so I decided to publish three more posts on these hallmarks that seem to have been collected by someone who didn't know much about them.
Sorry to bother you.

Strange task 5

I have the strange task of judging the competence of someone who has collected some silver marks and cataloged them. There are marks of Italian cities, but also marks that are attributed to European cities, and I have no authoritative texts on foreign silver, so I ask the experts for help. This mark...

Re: Need professional help. Big silver vase or plate

It is very unlikely that an Italian silversmith has the initials K Y, and even the style does not seem Italian. If I had to guess, I would say German. but it's just a guess.

Yes, it is Zappati Giovan Paolo (1726-1758) or his son Pietro (1759-1781) Rome.

Re: Need professional help. Big silver vase or plate

I did not find any Italian manufacturer from 1935 to 1970 called Spazza or Guai or Guaio or Gaio.
The funny thing is that in Italian " spazza guai" means sweeps away troubles.

Re: Can help me with this mark ....thanks

Yes, 1974 is the date of manufacture. Brandimarte Guscelli was a brilliant and extravagant character and perhaps did not respect the regulations to the letter. His redundant punching was made to embellish the artifact. He used this kind of punching at least until 1975, which I saw personally. I can'...

Re: Can help me with this mark ....thanks

The bowl seems a typical example of Brandimarte's products. Below an example of punching.

I can't imagine why the marks were erased.
