Re: Small Danish(?) cup, maker VK

Well. This is rather frustrating. I can't get the photo embedding function to work for me. Any advice? Nonetheless, here are the photos in links instead. https://imgur.com/a/8StT7QN https://imgur.com/a/YEn9XmE https://imgur.com/a/lmK1XvU https://imgur.com/a/B7VAcRd

Small Danish(?) cup, maker VK

Hello out there, I was hoping you could help me ID this small cup. I suspect it is Danish, as I have found it in Denmark. It would have to a provincial maker, as there is no three towers mark. 8 cm high. The three marks read "S" "VK" and "S". The marks are struck inside...

Re: Hello everyone, what's the thing here. thank you

Hi,

It is probably originally a spoon then made to a bangle, as the three towers mark is almost(?) never used for jewellery.

Holger Kyster is btw known for making cutlery after Thorvald Bindesbøll's patterns, but this is probably one of his own patterns.

Re: Need help identifying silver cigarette case

Hi,

It could very well be the Danish silversmith Hans Jensen. He made a lot of different silverware. His mark was H.J.

Re: Please help identify these spoons (H.IMSLAND ?)

Probably Norwegian.

The same maker is discussed in this topic:

Re: Help With Danish Maker

The pattern is called Dansk Krone, literally Danish crown.
I'm not sure who the maker is. Dansk Krone Sølv (Danish Crown Silver) is stated for the auction results I can find.

Best regards

Re: Caddy spoon help with makers mark

I think it might be Danske Guldsmedes Sølvvarefabrik, even though the mark isn't too clear. They made lots of silverware in the middle of the 20th century.
Danske Guldsmedes Sølvvarefabrik is Danish for Danish Goldsmiths' Silverware Factory.
It was based in the town of Slagelse.

Best Regards

Re: 2 small Flower Spoons

Going through some hallmark databases, I found Christian Peter Naeboe, who used the N in a circle, but can't find any examples of his work. Any thoughts? As Christian Peter Næboe was a danish silversmith from Copenhagen and later assayer of Copenhagen (1823-1831), His works would most definetely co...

Re: Swedish 1939 Dish, EM Maker

I would say that the maker is probably Emil O. Möller.
It would fit with the mark and he (they?) made art deco type pieces.

Re: Swedish Teaspoon

Thanks a lot to all three for the help. It is always nice to learn something new, and interesting. Your explanation about why the spoon is marked on the "wrong" side makes sense, and when inspecting it closer I found engravings on both sides. It seems as if someone took a lot of pride in t...

Re: Swedish Teaspoon

Well, that's quite interesting, and might explain why I haven't seen it before. I'm also danish. My first impression of the spoon was, that it was probably pewter, because of the weight, and there fore it sort of makes sense to put the hallmarks on the front side. That leaves the question of maker a...

Swedish Teaspoon

I found this Swedish teaspoon at a charity shop in southern Sweden. It is very light weight and in my opinion of quite poor quality. What is a bit unusual is that it is stamped on the front instead of the back. Is that normal? It is marked with the three crowns and U5 for 1874. I think the city hall...
