Re: Unknown hallmark

when you look at the work - the edge I am convinces its nor even silver. A skilled silver smith would have the edge follow the shell not these openings.

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.

Re: Help with identification of coffee pot

I understand you confusion Its because the marks are false. Here you see 2 of the marks. Month and maker. They are acompanied by a Van Haven guardein mark. Month mark is the same.
The item from the book is proberly not danish.

Re: The idtntification of old snuff box

From Denmark home of hovedvandsæg.
The liquid was calle hovedvand and included spices and very much (salmiakspiritus) household ammonia.
Could be eau de cologne but the main content was salmiakspiritus

And the small room at the bottom - it is for the coin.

You are not wrong, but in many cities no guardein, so they could react by using the Copenhagen guardein for testing.

Re: Сup

the Hinnerup mark is very worn. When it was new the name Hinnerup stood with small letters inside guardein mark.
A tiny part of mark 3 is visible. only a corner.

Show us all marks, as suggested by Trev,so we could identify the maker.

Copenhagen might not be the case. The 3 towers was used all over Denmark.
Agree there is a missing mark
