Re: Makers Mark ID on Ladle

Hello again, I was looking at another Dutch spoon on line recently and thought the maker's mark "HT" under a "spoon" seemed familiar. It brought me back to this post on the "Tarner" family silversmithing concern. I noted the the image, previously uploaded by myself, of ...

Dutch Spoon circa 1900

Hello Dutch section again. I just bought myself another Dutch spoon, and not by accident. It is 12 cms long and maybe has some "art nouveaux" type patterning on its front. Importantly it has reasonably crisp hallmarks and an edit of them is shown in my 2nd photo. https://live.staticflickr....

Re: Marks J.L.H

Hello, your photo lacks some crispness in the lettering. Is it definitely "JLH"? is the lower lettering "EPC"? If so possibly electroplate on copper. I wondered if the the "H" could be "LTD" in which case James Lodge of Sheffield could be considered. Lets hope...

Re: Unknown Marks

Hello Mithrur, welcome to the forum. Also thank you for the crisp images you uploaded. The image that could give you an idea of the fork's maker is the mark halfway down its stem. The marks on the finial back of the fork are basically pseudo or false hallmarks to imitate real silver cutlery. The GS ...

Hello, TS, it is always better to "embed the image" as more people will see it. Not everybody is happy to look to another site to see an image. I have had a look though and I hope you have realised that your spoon is just silver plated and not readily datable as so much of European solid s...

Re: Sheffield Hallmarks on a serving spoon

Hello, I think there is a chance that you are going to be disappointed with with the outcome with your bit of cutlery and its marks. You have "Sheffield England" on the item meaning it is likely to have been made at the beginning of the 20th century. In fact there is a possibility of close...

Hello Revampvin, we have the Gothic EPNS lettering plus a Maltese cross but these were regularly used by companies up to and around the start of the 20th century. Thus the key must be the shield with the intertwined lettering. It could be the manufacturer's mark or possibly a retailer's mark. From y...
