Re: Anwar & Co 1940 E.P.N.S cruet set

Hello “Magicbradford”, you are not the only forum member wondering who were “Anwar & Co”. Info is in short supply. “Cagne” asked about an “Anwar” mark on a spoon in 2016, and the reference for the images is below. https://www.925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=45978&hilit=anwar The ...

Re: Phoenix From The Ashes mark EPNS

Hello this is like buses, it seems “Phoenix” marks come along one after the other. I was trawling eBay as I very often do and I found an interesting set of marks stamped on what looks like a salad server. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49050740762_6871084992_z.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/...

Hello again "Hpidaves", I thought I should try to find a bit of evidence for my observation. Below is a type of mark associated to "M.Baum".

Re: Hollow handle fish(?) knife help requested

Hello, marks like those on your knife blade have been suggested for Sheffield's early 20th century "Baum Brothers". The significant mark seems to be the "shield" like mark next to the "BB". It mimics the mark confidently believed to be that of the father "Maurice B...

Re: Duchess Plate - is this a process or brand

I recently saw a “Duchess Plate” spoon on my local market bric-a-brac stall. I did not buy it, thinking, it was a well-identified trademark and kept burrowing through the box for something more interesting. When I got back home I had a quick check on line to confirm my thoughts on “Duchess Plate”. I...

Phoenix From The Ashes mark EPNS

Hello, I just go hold of a small, possible, hors d’oeuvres fork made in EPNS material. It is less than 9 centimeters long and no doubt was an Australia “souvenir” item as its finial carries an embossed image of the island of Tasmania. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48891340083_4c4e2b79de_z.jpg ...

Zeewo mark, Zee Wo Goblet?

Hello, it seems I have to ask question on a section of the Forum I have not tried before. A few weekends ago I was picking around on one of the bric a brac stalls at my local market and I came across the mini “goblet” pictured below. I turned it over to look at its base fully expecting to read “EPNS...

Thank you Blakstone for your full reply. My slow response was the result of trying to get some crisper photos of the marks. That which I have failed to do yet.

Small Spoon Crab Guarantee & Butterfly Mark?

Hello back to France. I just bought this very small spoon that I assume is a condiment spoon. If English, I would have called it a salt spoon but I am hoping for the forum to tell me a lot more about French hallmarking with this mini item. It is 9 centimetres long and the 5 hallmarks it carries is d...

Follow on. Hello again, I had to join the Library to glean some of the information I believe I was missing. I found on the 1891 census that Samuel Birdsall was married with a 7 year old son “James Ernest Birdsall”. In 1901 James was still at the same home address as his father and although difficult...

Hello, I have thoughts I would like to add to what Impulse and AG2012 have said. Although Impulse’s pictures have gone now, my thinking about the “crab” mark on Impulse’s and other similarly marked spoons, is that a “crab shape” was the obvious shape to mimic the “lion passant“ mark that is on Engli...
