Re: Chicago World's Fair 1893 Souvenir Spoon - Sterling?

Hi, It is marked ``solid silver`` meaning it's not silver plated. So,it can be anything between .800 and .950. There is a misconception that only sterling is solid silver; sterling became a synonym for silver which is wrong because sterling is only one standard (.925 or 92.5% silver alloy). That bei...

Re: Unknown Origin nor maker

Hi,
Without other marks it`s most probably French silverplate square maker`s mark.
Testing silverplate is not reliable unless filed deep enough to reach base metal.Or new methods of electronic testing I am not familiar with.

Re: Help read the marks (the women’s head wearing a kokoshnik and 84)

Hi, There was secondary (auxiliar) kokoshnik mark (both circular and less common vertical oval) in composite objects,but never as solitary mark without assayar`s initials. Besides,left facing was used for a very short time.That makes this set of marks suspicious, as always when we see something for ...

Re: Unidentified maker's mark on Hermès powder box

Hi,
There are too many J.C. (or is it J.G. ?) makers to identify without knowing the symbol between the letters.
