Re: French Tabatiere

You're right Trev, in facts Albert Einstein's theory of relativity is not yet fully proven after more than 100 years and Guglielmo Marconi has theorized the radio waves having observed them. I only made a hypothesis and a request for verification on the Dictionnaire Arminjon not having it available ...

Re: French Tabatiere

Hi Blacstone,

Could the tabatiere's silversmith be Jacques-Joseph EVRARD? Rue Dauphine 20. Symbol: une massue = a club?.

Re: French Tabatiere

Thank you very much Blakstone, I am waiting, COVID 19 permitting. As for the rest I am convinced that L. brumaire has activated the census (art.LXXXII) and replaced the official punches in force (sanglier 1 and cheval 2) with other new ones too if provisional (Coq A1 and 85 upside down: S8), as soon...

Re: French Tabatiere

Certainly Blakstone, we will continue to look for it both in Arminjon and in other ways. However the presence of the cheval 2’s mark next to a lozenge confirms that the tabatiere’s Orfevre must have deposited his punch in the period August 1797 - January 7, 1798. It’s also possible that the poinçon ...

Re: French Tabatiere

Hi Blackstone, The Monnaie's Museum preserves two plaques d'insculpation dated year V with the inscription "Table des Monnaie conformed a l'Arrete du Directoire executive du 21 brumaire an V" (published on Bull. 90 n ° 853 of 11November 1796). However Goldsmiths' records begin on 1 Decembe...

Re: French Tabatiere

HI, it's necessary to specify that the French tabatiere shows the official horse's head 2 mark, in use from August 1797 to 7 January 1798. This mark is contemporary to the plaque d'insculpation an V, preserved at the Tresor Monnaie Museum, unique in its kind and mentioned by Arminjon in the introduc...

Re: French Tabatiere

Hi I have identified the maker's mark of your French tabatiere: Henri Edmond Carpentier, symbol blackbird. (see Tableau Douet 1806 n° 287. Orfevre tabatiere rue Cimetiere S. Nicolas 9 Paris.) This tabatiere is very important for the horse's head 2 mark, which is quite rare and attests that the silve...
