Re: What Was the Use of This Piece of French Flatware?

Difficult to tell H&C. or H & Cie
If there is a rosebud above and a star below, with H & Cie, it could be Henin, (& Cie), Paris.
H&C. is for Hauvy fils & Crampon

Probably oyster fork.Short and curved tines help detach the oyster from the shell.
Two-pronged fork is for shellfish, snails and hors-d'oeuvre.

This is from Skurlov.There is no other family name starting with Ж among St Petersburg silversmiths. Besides,Russian given names starting with this letter are extremely rare....

Hi,
Those are pseudo marks, even faked marks for Vienna 18th century and pseudo or faked Augsburg.

Re: Identify maker "OSCH" on Czech deco candlesticks

There must be at least one more letter in front of OSCH, possibly the name of German maker in Czechoslovakia.
For example,Tosch is rather common German family name.
Also,possibly not officially exported to Israel but brought there and the owner had Israel mark added.
