Re: 800M 875M

@Qrt.S nobody here in the forum discussion pretends M or M in frame to be a maker`s mark (there is only the wrong attribution in "German Maker's Marks after 1886"). You have the same opinion as me: M means Millesimes. But why should it be only a Belgian fineness mark!? My photo of the mark...

Re: 800M 875M

Dear Qrt.S, there are many offers with 800M attributed to Memmert in the German eBay. If with or without frame, in my opinion it does not matter. You find 800M with and without frame on Belgian pieces too (see Oel's input). If M actually means Millesimes (Tausendstel) it is international. I attach p...

Re: Brooch with red glas or rubis

Dear Krisztian,
many thanks for your complete information. Politzer was an outstanding Vienna silversmith. If it is him, it is even possible that there are rubis, but I do not think so because the brooch is not gold. I shall verify this.

Re: Brooch with red glas or rubis

@AG2012 Thanks. Do you think the head? is the dog head for small pieces? @huszas Better photos are not possible. To the left there is without any doubt a 2 and to the right there is an A. If this is the dog's mark of Austro-Hungary 1872-1922 for small pieces, it is silver 900 and assay office Vienna...

Brooch with red glas or rubis

Have an inherited brooch on which I read PATENT and on the little loop in very tiny letters LP , A and 2 head? A. The photos are the best I could do. What I call head can be all other thing. For me identfication is not possible. Does anybody has an idea to what country these marks belong? Regards si...

Re: 800M 875M

I do not see an A. The M-discussion is as old as a beard. For years one could read in our forum under German Makers' Marks after 1886 that the M stands for the Berlin silversmith Gustav Memmert. After 3 runs I succeeded sometime ago in convincing the admins to complete the commentary. From 800M alon...

Re: 800M 875M

The M means Millesimes (Tausendstel). It was attributed to the German silversmith Memmert (see German Maker's Marks) what is wrong. On my suggestion the comment was completed. I saw the M on Belgian and German items even on Bruckmann pieces but not on Russian silver.

It is not the crown of a duke but of a count (Graf). Nine pearls.
For the maker AW let's wait for Theoderich.

Re: Whiff box import from Germany

Thanks to dognose I am able again to post in the forum!! @Qrt.S and Ubaranda: Thanks to you both. I think B is the assayer in Warsaw. Though Kuppenheim opened the shop under his name already 1857 (not 1899), I exclude the other assayers because I found an inscription inside which mentions the "...

Re: Compote spoon, maker?

Hello Bahner, just before i saw your post, I discovered in my collection ice spoons marked by Gebr. Sauerland with exactly the same pattern. Having read your hint I looked in my Bahner catalogue and indeed No. 5000 is the same. I suppose Sauerland copied the pattern (with or without authorisation) o...

Compote spoon, maker?

This spoon has a very fine pattern. I didn't succeed in identifying the maker. I see 800 halfmoon crown and with much phantasy a cercle with point (but that could be part of the pattern). To the right I recognize the Austo-Hungarian import mark for 1891-1901. So that we can date the item into this p...

brazier?

A friend sent me these photos, asking what country and master. I have no idea. Could the letters be cyrillic? I do not know why the second photo is so small.

Big compote spoon German

This big and heavy spoon (25,2 cm long) is marked 800, halfmoon, crown, a square with point and then C.W.W & G. Does anybody know what the letters mean? I think the square could point to Hamburg!? Regards silverfan https://abload.de/img/rimg7445nfj1s.jpg https://abload.de/img/rimg7446uakj6.jpg
