Re: Venetian wax jack, what age? question 2

I understand the point, and of course I didn't add my comments to validate an age, but just for an open point of discussion.

Re: Venetian wax jack, what age? question 2

Just for the pleasure of discussion... I just had a speech with a vendor that has a small "cuccuma" (coffee pot) with same marks. He said that it has been dated beginning of XIX by two auction houses. Not having the "cuccuma" in my hand I cannot say if it sounds modern or old (ma...

Re: Fantasy marks?Turin? Question 3

Traintime, many thanks for your contribution. In this forum I learnt that multiple marks appearing ancient could be Hanau, but I was not motivated to search because I was oriented to an Italian origin of the pieceses. Regarding the middle mark, basing on the orientation with respect to the others tw...

Fantasy marks?Turin? Question 3

i again, I come with a couple of sauce boats. Again I'm not able to define the Age. Silver is very white so It could be of an higher grade than 800. I do not nave chance to test It. Anyway... The boats are hand made, there are clear signs of hammering and manual finishing. But what are the marks? Ar...

Re: Venetian wax jack, what age? question 2

Oh my God! :-)))))) I bought it even if I was suspecting that... I was not sure because I canceled the picture (to do not have toooo many picture stored), but I was remembering same mark on a egoiste coffee pot (cuccuma) in venetian style but manufacturing details that where no ancient. Anyway I lik...

Re: Rococco vases

the vases are in a typical Venetian style (but made from many north east silversmiths).
You can find in various sizes but more commonly in small size.

Venetian sugar bowl, what age?

Dear all, I know that the mark of "leone in moleca" doesn't connect directly with the XVIII century, I know that this marl is often used beside modern maker mark to highlight the provenance or the style, so could you help me to identify the age basing on the object and style and not on the...

Re: Franche silverplate maker? Could you help to identify it?

thank you for the hint,
yes I was aware of the fact that french system mark the grams of silver plating.

Maker mark is a bit different.

Is a lozenge in to a square
could be R star D?
the middle mark could be GR for grams?

any other option?


thank you
