Re: Shell Dish 900 with YM in Shield

Not trusting the alleged Y but going on a hunch, a wide cast for any silversmith using name Yosef yields a known reference to a Jewish smith in Yemen antiquities. So at least there's some chance that Y might be correct even later on.

That link might need to be fixed so it goes direct to the correct page...there's a few that are like this, but most are right.

Re: order of marks, alphabetization

In the main menu for American, when you have initials its easier to start with the initials listings and then go to the first letter (H here). A quick scan reveals it and it then links back to the main listing. Here is the H initials section: https://www.925-1000.com/americansilver__Init_H.html Of c...

Re: Help with Cigar Cutter

I see image 2 as oblique angle view confined in smaller square on left below image 1. Mark, if that, appears as G-form letter or 6-like number depending upon orientation. The number 34 under the wing is in a style more common to the past (before WWI) but not necessarily out of employment after that....

Re: Shell Dish 900 with YM in Shield

The crescents can probably be ignored as just detail work...they were also found impressed on the marks side where the shield interfered during the stamping of the identification. After checking many marks to see if a badly corrupted (latin) letter might form a curved Y before an M (no sure results)...

Re: Shell Dish 900 with YM in Shield

Another view of the marks. On the opposite side appear two crescent shape impressions that appear nowhere else in the detail work. The shell may have been gold washed originally...some color spots retained in deep details was cleaned to establish this was not silverplate over brass with faked marks....

Shell Dish 900 with YM in Shield

Got double vaccines and can barely focus now. The "Y" is odd and reversed, and hooks backwards, so maybe a faulty "P", if even a letter at all. Tray/bowl/dish is tri-footed. No other marks could be located. https://i.postimg.cc/YS5PCBrP/image.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/j5yFW3CS/ima...

Silverplate Brush Types

From the category of "Don't trust what you read in listings" comes this item with no maker marks visible. Deconstructed to show components. Small hole at top of handle for unknown reasons. Very large brushes held in to wood by wires and the handle seems off for barber work...a bit weak for...
