Re: Help identifying a silver mark

Peter you are very kind replying to me as quickly as you do, I realise its voluntary so thank you. After reading a little more I think you are right about it being Hanau silver, although you write "Hanau style". Do you mean it is unlikely to be made by a Hanau silversmith, or do you write ...

Re: Help identifying a silver mark

Hi, I have been able to take some quick pics of the object for you. The first picture is one of the supports and the second is from the top. I assume you are right about it not being Dutch as you clearly would know far more than I. The jeweller I spoke to yesterday said it was from Holland but as I ...

Re: Help identifying a silver mark

Thank you for your reply oel, yes the water is definitely getting murkier. How would I even get started trying to research pseudos as I am not even sure which country its was manufactured in. To me, without the marks it does actually look similar to other objects I have seen manufactured in the Neth...

Hi,

Looking through your website I now don't think it is Dutch, none of the marks I can find look similar at all. Ah well back to the drawing board...

Re: Help identifying a silver mark

Hello, I have just been told it is Dutch but that's as far as we got, not totally convinced he knew what he was talking about but hey..maybe. I think it is pretty old though, just had a look at the Netherlands section in Tardy and found some marks that are similar. Assay office for Zutphen looks a b...

Help identifying a silver mark

https://i.postimg.cc/WDrVSqYZ/DSC0589.jpg Good evening Does anyone recognise these marks please? The middle one looks similar to a Maison Commune mark for 1787 Paris. Although I don't think it is French, possibly Dutch, Flemish ? Would be grateful for any help you can offer. Many thanks

Hi Buckler,

Well that didn't last long :-(. I just read your Quiz and thought i'd do a little one of my own.

Back to the drawing board

Tested as sterling silver although no marks and a family crest ?

https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg Hello, Does anyone recognise this family crest? I believe the ladle to be 18th - 19th century and probably has a whale bone handle. There are no hallmarks, and no areas that look like they may have been rubbed away. Altho...

Re: Does anyone recognise these marks ?

Hello I have just showed the marks to a friend of mine who lives in China. He said he knows nothing about silver but 银制 translates to English as made by silver, and 旭浩 could be the name of the silversmith. 旭 means sun, 浩 means big. Although he did say that it is Japanese and not Chinese, as the Chin...

Hello Thank you Hose. Interesting to know that the content was divided into 16 parts, and thank you Qrt.S for qualifying Hose's knowledge and counter value. Equally grateful for the history info regarding Marius and his father. I also read that they are well respected Norwegian silversmiths that mad...

Re: Does anyone recognise these marks ?

Hello Trev, I am still unable to find any similar marks. As I said previously, the website post about the Korean silver allowed me to confirm it is Chinese silver. That is all I can find at present. Learning the silver marks for a country that uses a different language, obviously takes time, experie...

Re: Could someone identify this spoon for me please ?

Hi Hose_dk, Thank you for your reply I appreciate you sharing the knowledge. I cant find any other 19th century Norwegian silversmiths other than Marius Hammer with the same style initials. It would be great if you could check your book, or maybe provide the details of the book so I could try to fin...

Hi Trev. Sorry I don't have another picture at present. It's a small silver pot with typical bamboo decoration. Your recent post regarding the new Korean section has allowed me to understand the character at the top and can now confirm the marks are Chinese. Although I cant yet find the others. Maur...

Re: Could someone identify this spoon for me please ?

HI,

I just found Marius Hammer from Norway on your website. Although the spoon doesn't have the Hammer logo it looks like the same MH. Now I'm thinking it's not from 1976 maybe its from the 19th century. Oh the confusion :-)

Regards

Could someone identify this spoon for me please ?

Hello, Apologies if this isn't Scandinavian I thought it might be from Norway. I guess the 76 is for 1976 and the MH is the maker of the spoon but I am not sure. If anyone could identify this for me that would be great. Thank you Maureen https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.co...
