Re: Military Gifts, Awards, & Inscriptions

Good day A cigarette tin in my collection from 1912/13 by Henry Matthews of Birmingham. It was given to Captain F.D. Berry from the Medical Staff at N.L Camp Jacob's. Not much more info available. https://i.postimg.cc/sBrxJX2G/20210227-140111.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/hJ1jZBJy/20210227-140153.jpg

Re: 13 Loth Snuff box

The Normann family extended their coat of arms next to the count's arms with the coat of arms of the extinct Ehrenfelser family, in blue three oblique left bars next to each other, the two outer ones red, the middle gold. The description fits perfectly the hatching of right arms on the box. (I thou...

Re: 13 Loth Snuff box

So I did some more digging. This box could have belong to Philipp Christian von Normann-Ehrenfels. He was made a count in 1806.
He died in 1817...can this box be that old?

More info about him:

For the maker AW let's wait for Theoderich.

Thank you, yes it should be count. I wonder if there would be any records of German/Austrain counts somewhere?

Russian or German

Good evening I am trying to figure out if this could be Russian hallmarks on this cigarette case I want to buy. It bares the German 800 mark but other marks don't look German. Could it be German marks on a case imported from Russia? This is the only available pictures. Groete Jannie https://i.postim...

Re: Pierced sugar bowl

I agree that it is a sugar bowl, or a sweetmeat bowl, and needs a glass liner. It's definitely a Hayne & Cater mark and the date letter is the G of 1842/43. Phil Thank you for your quick reply. I am thinking of getting a liner made by a local potter in town. Think it will be nice to put a littl...
