Re: Confusing hallmarks on a silver wine taster

Hello all Yes, the marks are confusing because this is a fantasy piece. As noted before on this forum, wine tasters are the mostly frequently faked French silver objects.

Re: Confusing hallmarks on a silver wine taster

What I wanted to say is that it is possible that the tastevin is of an earlier age than that determined by legible hallmarks. I do not know what were the uses in France or Belgium, but in Italy, in the past, often the silver items that had hallmarks from abroad, or unknown or no longer legible, the...

Both marks (A 800 and possibly maker`s mark next to it) are consistent with Belgian marks.
Cannot tell if French marks are genuine.

Re: Confusing hallmarks on a silver wine taster

That's why I'm confused, because I see French hallmarks from around 1800 and Belgian hallmarks after 1942. Can we speek here for a forgery or is the tester punched again as proof of being silver although it's punched 800 while is has the French punch for 950? On the other hand, because I found it in...

Re: Help with strange hallmark

Hi Oel,

I'm still figuring out how to work with the forum and how to reply, that's why I reposting many time the same message.

No there are no other hallmarks on the spoons, only what you see on the photos, namely the Import and duty mark and the zig zag mark.

Once again many thenks or your help.
