Help with mark

Dear forum, I have this bracelet with coats of arms links, marked (see below). Cannot figure out the country it is from. Switzerland has a .900 mark, but the coats of arms do not match. Any ideas? Thank you very much! http://i66.tinypic.com/sxlv5u.jpg http://i66.tinypic.com/250q8ag.jpg Best, Mike.

Hello dear forumers! I have this gorgeous Mexican bracelet, see pics below. It has nice turquoise nuggets on one side and buffalo cut outs on back. Very nicely made large heavy piece, but I cannot find the silversmith's mark! It looks to be OK or CK in a script. Looked on the forum, and online in ge...

I am not sure if it's Chinese or Japanese, been looking at hieroglyphics for awhile and can not recognize this stylized form. if someone can help me identify the language or the mark, that would be great! ...

Interesting mystery mark

Hello! I have this ring, interesting old design. Nice mark, stamped twice, and I'm sure I saw it before, just cannot wrap my head around it :) Is it an ornament, are they letters, is it Native American? Tried it this way and that, couldn't find anything. Any thoughts would be appreciated, as always!...

Re: Mark help :)

Phil & Trev, thank you!
Sorry was out for the weekend.

Yes, that mark is spot on :) It seemed more detailed to me compared to the their other work, but I'm very glad I know what it is now.

Thanks a lot for all the help!

Best,
Mike.

Re: Mark help :)

Hi Phil, thank you very much! I can't find the combination of the these marks for Celtic Art Industries. They seem to have stamped their pieces with IONA and I don't see the Lion Rampant mark on their pieces. Also, I think this piece is much more detailed, it also has ornament on back, very fine wor...

Mark help :)

Hello. I have this great Scottish pin (see below). I figured by the hallmark, that it's from Edinburgh, 1977 ? However, there seems to be a Maker's mark to the left, which I cannot make out :( Maybe somebody is familiar with the maker and can point me in the right direction? http://i63.tinypic.com/3...

Help with mark identification :)

Hi. I have these interesting earrings. I believe they are by an American designer that used old Chinese jade pieces. Could not find the mark online, hard to do since it's so similar to a copyright sign. Would anyone have an idea on who the maker is? http://www.upl.co/uploads/14503646211553781679.jpg...

Help identifying Old Mexican earrings

Hi fellows.
I got these nice modernist earrings, I assume from 60s-70s.
Can anybody help identify the maker? I've tried and tried, and can't decipher it.
