Re: Please help with year and place of manufacture

This losenge-shaped mark is a French mark for silversmith used from 1798 to now. Thus, it should be silver (at least 800/1000, could be 925/1000 or 950/1000 standard) The silversmith letters seems to be L P ? but I could not identify the symbol between the two letters. As previouly sugeested by othe...

Re: Unknown French maker on spoons

I have sent an email in French to the firm to ask if they used the A above a cross as a symbol for their silversmith mark.
We will see if I have answer.

Re: Unknown French maker on spoons

If I am correct, on the case appears "Denis Grau / Tourcoing". See: http://www.daelgrau.com/fr/histoire The firm still exists ! I do not know if it this the original case (it may or may not be, even if you bought it at the same time as the spoons), but please be aware that Tourcoing is in ...

Re: Identification of a silversmith - Minerva period

Thank silverfan. Do you have a source for this information ? Based on this, I found a notice that shows two marks used by the Queillé familly during 19th c. ; but even if the mark pictured (in the notice) on the left is close to "my" mark, I think is not exactly the same. Note that the not...

Re: Incredible beautiful cup

I agree with AG2012, except that I could not confirm the identity of the silvermith since I do not own the "Nocq" (reference book for parisian silversmith during 18e c.). Note a minerva mark (Paris, after 1838) which could have been hallmarked when a repair was made, or maybe when the 18e ...

Re: Dutch powder box ?

Thank you for your information ! I look once more in order to find other marks, but I could not see any more marks. But I understand that the Hooijkaas firm was quite important in the city (thanks for the link), so that could indeed be a work from them. Thanks ! My knowledge of Dutch silver is very ...

Re: French box

In order to be sure, it would be necessary to have the item in my hands (or at last a better pic of the box), but it seems to me that the sugar box is probably an Hanau production from the end of the 19e c.
The marks are (copy or original ?) : Paris, 1786 and Paris, 1809-19 2nd standard.

Re: Silver spoon - Unknown country

Many thanks for your help Krisztián and AG2012 !

After some cleaning, I see :
- on the left of the lion head : probably the letter "I" AG2012 is refering to.
- on the right of the lion head : maybe "4" ? What is the signification of this ?

Thanks !

Silver spoon - Unknown country

Hi all, Here is a silver spoon about which I do not know a lot because I did not identify the marks. According to me, probably made at the end of 19th or beginning of 20th. I see two marks : OW in an octagon : maker's mark ? a lion head : unidentified mark Here is two pics : https://image.noelshack....
