Re: French base for spices with bigorne

The maker is Denis Jean Andres Garreau; see this thread for more information: Sugar basket maker

The mark under the warranty mark is the second standard Minerva head in use from 1838, indicating that the piece was resold at some point after that and marked a second time.

Re: Please help me identify silversmith of Jam container

I have also noticed the errors in Arminjon around pages 237 & 237 among the “LD” section and they are confusing. That said, I am confident the maker here is Louis Dufay (Arminjon I, no. 02311) whose symbol is described as "un fa": the musical note "fa" (do, re, mi, fa, etc.) ...

Relatively. I've seen some flatware from him before; his mark is just usually just not identified.

Re: Small ladle, Prague 1785 or 1795

I think the maker is Andrej Dejl [Ondrej Theil] (Master 1766, died 1799). The mark is not an exact match, but he appears to be the only maker with the right initials at the right time.

Re: Please teach me a little lesson

I can add that the "K" charge mark in this form was used 1771-1774, and the B/B jurande mark was used 1773-1774. Also, in your second image, the left-hand mark in the upper photo is the Bordeaux decharge mark - a boar's head (inverted in the photo) - used 1770-1775.

Re: 1798-1809 French Tongs with Unknown CAB Maker

The maker is Charles Antoine Blerzy . Arminjon (v. I, no. 571) has very little information on him, just that he registered his mark 1799/1800 at 10 Place Thionville as a maker of "la grosserie" (a plateworker, essentially, as opposed to a maker of flatware or smallware, though there was, o...

Re: I need help to identify the Maker of a French box, please

You're welcome. I assume by "the 1793 mark" you mean the Greek Woman's head with the letter "P". It is a persistent error that this mark was used only in the late 18th century; see this thread - Antique Oil and Vinegar Set - for more information. The mark is known to have appeare...

Re: Please help me to identify French maker's mark

I found only two contemporaneous civil records mentioning J.A. Berel - as a declarant at his brother's marriage in 1803 and his mother's death in 1819 - but they did offer some interesting information. His full name was Jean Auguste Berel, and he was born in Paris around 1781, the son of Marin Jacqu...
