Re: Help identify cherub spoon

The laf has an moderne design (engraving)

Re: PJP - Unknown Hallmark, need ID?

no match in Denmark provinsial - ie no match of this mark. There are 2 in Sønderjylland with initials PIP one in Tønder and one in Åbenrå The Tønder smith mark is the one looking most like yours. But absolutely a different mark. In case your hovedvandsæg is contribuet to Tønder, one would say that y...

Re: russian hallmark is it real or fake?

its not mine - i saw it at a danish site, the owner asked what the early 17hundreds coin was. Everybody (else) agreed that the coin would be a cast one. I did not partisipate as I assumed it to be a complete fake. So I took the hallmark and posted. I cannot link to the facebook page as it a closed g...

Re: Please help to identify the maker of a Danish baroque spoon.

I dont think that it is a wedding spoon. But a gift presented at the 10 year aniversery of the couple. I.e. married in 1808 given in1818 The spoon is definetely older. Could very well be that the parents of the son or daughter gave a present at their 10 year. The spoon itselves I would date to 25 to...

Re: Silver content

or dit i read your question wrong. I.e. you refer to the 3-figures in stamp. 830S or like.
In that case:
The standard 1000/1000 for fine silver was implemented late 1800dreds. Before that the standard would be lod.

Re: Silver content

So that means that an item in silver stamped 833 is manufactured in the second half of 19th century or later? Absolutely not. Standard silver varies by country. some countries have 950 promille as standard. And during centuries different standards applied. In Denmark since 1608 the standard was 830...

Re: Why ladles are so often broken ?

Its a week point that the damage have happened. 1. silver can be hammered very thin. That makes it week. 2. It can be used but naturally the process making leads to an uneven thickness on various places. Nothing to be seen by the normal eye - lets assume the thickness is 2 mm. A place that is 0,1 mm...

Re: twice the B.P mark

i have similar pattern bought in Norway - so i would say there.
The danish Empire differs a bit from this.
Northern Germany is also a possibility.
But pattern is a variation of the pattern empire.

Re: twice the B.P mark

everything looks scandinavian - BP is not in registre of Denmark, but only half of the Danish mark are listed. Rest unknown so.
However something regarding pattern say Norway to me (i have not checked the norweigian registre) but from what I see, I would say Norway. late 1800dreds.
