Re: Weird combination of marks, help to decipher? 875 silver Jardiniere

Thanks for the info, that seems like something that I will have professionally done as it doesn't seem like something I would feel comfortable doing.

Also, why would the piece have been remarked after the Russian Revolution? Was it taken and re-assayed? What was the reasoning behind this? Thanks!

Weird combination of marks, help to decipher? 875 silver Jardiniere

I recently purchased this item and noticed it has a weird combination of marks. It is 875 silver which seems to be very uncommon for Germany. The maker appears to be Gebrüder Deyhle. The piece also contains Russian import marks as well and the assayer appears to be Kliment Zagayevksy. I believe the ...

4 Dublin spoons, maker ID? Date?

These came in a set of 3. From what I can tell online they are from Dublin, Ireland. However, the date mark is missing..... of course. Also, the maker seems to be conflicted between 3 names. John Laughlin Senior: 1745-1774, John Lloyd Senior: 1768-1821, John Locker: 1758-1825. They also each have a ...

English marks? Any help with this spoon?

Found a spoon today and it looks quite old. The marks look like English with the lion but the other mark looks like a Thistle? I thought the Thistle was Scottish? It doesn't make any since to me... and no date letter? What is going on here? https://www.antiquers.com/attachments/20190716_174307_resiz...

Is this E. Jaccard and Co.?

I found this shell spoon today. The company was around from 1852-1901. However, when I look online all the E. Jaccard markings have an E. and Co. Would it be safe to say my spoon is indeed E. Jaccard? I can't tell if the spoon is plated or possibly coin silver? Any input is great thanks! http://www....
