Re: Austrian Secessionist Creamer - Hallmark of Pitcher

Hi, Here are some pictures of this very small (bachelor sized) creamer / cream pitcher. Thanks! I will have to check out the designs of the designers mentioned, to see if this conforms to any of their styles.

Austrian Secessionist Creamer - Hallmark of Pitcher

Hi, I am hoping to understand this hallmark on an Austrian piece - it is of a handled pitcher, and appears to be a maker's mark rather than a tax mark or region mark. The marks appear on a very small bachelor's tea service creamer in a Jugenstil / Secessionist manner. Thanks! https://i.ibb.co/p18wpJ...

One More British Colonial/Provincial Mystery

Hi, This is a more recent find - again, I may just not have the right books, but it is a challenging one. It has a monogram that I typically see on pieces in the 1810-25 range. This piece is fairly sturdy; it is about 4 3/16 inches in length, and about 13g. I've not seen a similar style of mark befo...

Teaspoon Marked GR with Right-Facing Lions Flanking

Hi, This is another mystery piece, but one that I've had for fifteen years or more, and have not been able to solve. Hoping some of the advanced British Empire collectors might have seen this mark before! Regards, WesternPA https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg

Provincial Spoon Circa 1780-1810

Hi, Thought I'd post pictures of a recent "unknown" find - a teaspoon measuring about 5 3/8" and weighing about 14 g, marked what appears to be GS flanked by three balls on each side, and possibly overstriking another mark, possibly not. This piece has a potential English colonial fee...

Might be worth posting this thread to the British colonial area; it has that feel.

Re: Unidentified Maker's Mark "W"

This is an American spoon, circa 1790-1815, and probably mid- or Western Pennsylvania based upon the drop and the monogram. It could also be Eastern Ohio or a few other places.

Re: Unusual Small Marrow Scoop - Provincial or Colonial?

Never mind about this one - as it turns out, the marks are meant to be for Philip Syng of Philadelphia, though I have my doubts!

Unusual Small Marrow Scoop - Provincial or Colonial?

Hi, Another mystery piece here - I thought perhaps a West Country maker, but really have no idea, and probably lack the proper books. The orientation of the scoops seems unusual to me, as does the size (just under seven inches in length, and about 34 grams), but I don't see a lot of these. Would app...

Georgian or Victorian Fiddle Ladle w/Unusual Marks

Hi, This one has me stumped; it has unusual marks but appears to be solid silver, circa 1800-50, and seems too light at 7" and 49 grams to be CES or Caribbean. Hoping someone has come across similar marks before! Thanks, WesternPA https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/...
