Re: Marks on Kovsh

Thank you both very much for your excellent information. I do not currently own the piece but was interested in buying it, I thought however it would be prudent to seek advice here before making any offer to purchase.

Regards

Re: Toddy ladle marks

Hi Matt

I have posted below a cropped image of the makers mark which basically shows all the detail there is. As for a missing letter before the A, then it could be the case but unfortunately its impossible to tell.

Hi Phil

Thanks for your observations, looks like another one we can't give a definite attribution to.

Thomas Wallis II makers mark?

Hi I am assuming the makers mark on this shell back teaspoon is that of Thomas Wallis II. However it has two pellets dividing the initials, I cannot recall seeing a Wallis mark with a single pellet let alone two. Has anyone else seen this mark before or is it a different maker? Many Thanks Martin ht...

Any ideas on this spoon's origin?

Hi This teaspoon I originally thought may be Scottish Provincial, possibly Perth, but I now think it is more likely Colonial. Has anybody seen these marks before, if not any opinions would be gratefully appreciated. Many Thanks Martin https://i.postimg.cc/pdCcqfWZ/SAM-6374.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/T...

Re: Unrecorded Exeter mark

Maybe an unrecorded mark for John Stone, he seemed to change his mark on a regular basis.

Re: Soup ladle marks

Thanks for the reply, I think 1774 is probably a good shout. As for the maker,I am leaning towards either WE or WF but I could be wrong.

Soup ladle marks

Hi I know this is a bit of a longshot due to these marks being worn and compressed, but does anybody think they can identify the maker and possibly the date letter?

Re: 1801 London, twin dishes with spoon holes, exceptionally well made. What are they??
