Re: Bracelet A835

I believe the hallmark is "A800" and I believe this hallmark is from Belgium. ::: Interesting that you are Flanders. ::: I can't see the maker's mark in good enough detail, but the general shape of it appears to resemble a French hallmark, and I do know that there were some Belgium silvers...

Re: Hannah T. Geissbuhler Nut Spoon

Thank you for responding, this really means a lot to me, yes I did not think she would have been a very prolific silversmith especially given the intensity of her scientific career which undoubtedly took much of her time and energy.... Would love to see any pictures of her work, this was an interest...

Re: Tifft & Whiting Coin Silver Dinner Knives

Yes the blades are solid coin silver, and the coin silver content is actually slightly more durable than sterling silver because con silver is 90% silver and sterling silver is 92.5% silver. ::: I actually prefer using 80% silver flatware for actual eating purposes because it is even more durable an...

Re: John Cullum - John Cullen - Limerick

I completely agree with your evaluation and thank you. However, the same that can be said of Limerick can also be said of American. Has anyone ever seen an American spoon with such a stylized "Sterling" hallmark? I have not. I really am not sure about the drop either, but I do have one oth...

Re: Baroque 17th/18th century Sweetmeat / Tastevin

I thought Germany and also the Italian City-States at first as well, however I have owned 18th and even 17th century pieces which had makers marks on them, the picture makes it a little difficult to figure out, I'm not even quite sure what the hallmark is supposed to depict. :::

I'm trying to think of a country that would only have a town mark present and not a makers mark, and it's difficult. :::

Re: John Cullum - John Cullen - Limerick

One final note: The length of the spoon is 4.5 Inches (11.43 centimeters) which would make this spoon a demitasse spoon, even smaller than a teaspoon, which was used for stirring coffee (and possibly a baby spoon or a medicine spoon) :: This spoon shows almost no signs of wear, no wear at all to the...

Re: John Cullum - John Cullen - Limerick

I've noticed that many of the "G" letters in Limerick Makers' Marks are very similar in letter construction, the letter is somewhere between a "C" and a "G" as if the letter is just barely a "G" so after having this spoon in hand with a 30x loupe I am leaning ...
