Re: Tiffany? teaspoons unknow pattern.

Thank you. Is the first time I see the spoon hallmarked in the bowl (besides the french way of hallmarking) and I was curious about that. Is true it might be a souvenir spoon from a sport, but not completely convinced about it.

Re: Russian cross

Hi Igor, first of all if you read the rules of the forum you will find that you shouldn't post the very same post in two different sections, just not to confuse people. About the hallmarks sorry of not being very useful, I assume that the K3 is the makers initials, but I didn't found any name for it...

Re: Silver mini jug?

Is hallmarked 900. If I had to make a guess would be a oil/vinegar jug. Any other idea?

Gyrfalcon over crown

Any idea of this family crest? it does sound familiar to me but no idea really. It has a tinny star in the bottom, then the crown and then (what I think is) a gyrfalcon.

Re: Collection starting tips

Ah, actually the 200 year old spoon and the Georg Jensen brooch are the most intersting things ;) the rest is barely 925 marked and pretty common stuff.
