"HG" Maker's Mark on Carving Utensil

Hi All, I can't seem to find this Sheffield silver maker ("HG" in second image) that would match the "m" date mark (I'm assuming 1904 date rather than 1794?). Would appreciate any help identifying. TIA, Biju https://i.imgur.com/YVSOVCx.jpg https://i.imgur.com/u1G5ueu.jpg https://...

Re: Augsburg vases(?) - 17th century?

1.Both ``Augsburg acorn mark`` and what`s supposed to be maker's mark have nothing in common with well documented Augsburg marks. 2.Marks are always an integral part of the object (i.e.in harmony with the style, period and craftsmanship).The fact definitively not observed in this case. 3. The overa...

Re: Augsburg vases(?) - 17th century?

Hi, Small vases and definitively not 17th century Augsburg, but late 19th or early 20th century. Almost 100% Hanau pseudo marks. Regards Thanks to both you and Bahner so much for lending your expertise. For my own development on this subject matter, can you both please elaborate on how you made thi...

Augsburg vases(?) - 17th century?

Hey Everyone,
Any thoughts on whether this matched pair of "vases" (are they vases?) are 17th century Augsburg, and what is the second mark?

Thanks so much,
Biju

Whiting Mfg. Sterling Jug info needed

Hi Everyone, Is anyone able to identify what this holloware object is (beyond my describing it as a "jug"), recognize the pattern and estimate a date of production? There are no date marks, so according to this page, it should be between 1866 and 1904: https://www.925-1000.com/Whiting_Date...

Date is thus late 19th or early 20th century and the style is someting like neo-rococo.


Thank you Sasropakis for the info.

Re: 19C Swedish Bowl identification

I guess the OP was referring to the topic page where an example of the hexagon mark was shown and wanted to know when is was used and should the item have it. I couldn't find any info about the years but as I suspected it was a much later addition. Do you know why it was used? The only info I could...

Re: 19C Swedish Bowl identification

Looks like Göteborg and 1851. "V" looks a bit odd though but apparently there has been some variation with the style of the letters and I've seen some cases where there's a dot after the letter. If the maker's mark is CT then it could be Carl Tengstedt (1819-1862): https://www.silverstamp...

Re: Snuff box identification

Hi, Millesimal fineness .900, meaning very late 19th century or 2oth century. Lack of complex marking systems can eliminate several countries e.g. Britain, France. Lack of characteristic official state marks can eliminate many countries i.e. Spain, Netherlands,Austria. Likely Germany or Italy and r...
