Re: twice the B.P mark

I don´t know what says your source but in the internet I didn´t found anything but newer(post 1893) B.P. maker marks in Denmark. I found a older one that might make sense in Iceland, Bjorn Palsson (1854-1946). In any case this thread can be now moved to "Scandinavian silver" by the moderat...

Re: twice the B.P mark

Here is the thing, there is no pricking in this piece, maybe in the picture it does seem like it, probably because the image quality, but the monograms are engraved.

twice the B.P mark

So I came across this tea spoon, which I find quite old in style but I have no clue wether is american pre 1860 or not. Judging for the hallmark B.P it seems like it. Any clues on style, age, or maker? it has two marks, both identical. https://i.ibb.co/tqTb1pL/20200730-193003.jpg https://i.ibb.co/RP...

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: Gyrfalcon over crown

Thanks so much David, very very helpful. Sorry for the misleading tittle, but it is definitively a martlet, and a mural crown. Toy/Toye or Sewel families have the same family crest. (admin edit - see Posting Requirements ) Then the mural coronet in both of this crests have 5 towers (meaning town?), ...

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.
