I do not know the maker, but 40 means for sure the silver coating.

Re: Coffee spoon perhaps Alsace or Lorraine

Finally I found it myself. It is Wiesbaden in Germany, Carl Friedrich August ENGEL around 1860.

Coffee spoon perhaps Alsace or Lorraine

This thin spoon is supposed to come from the German speaking region of Alsace, because it is marked 13 Lot, Master C.E = ?, fleur de Lys.
Does anybody know the master?

Re: Austrian Art Deco mocha set with Diana Mark

I am not sure if the piece in the middle is a mocha pot, because there is no insulation between the handle and the pot. What could it be otherwise?

Re: Maker NH on little mocha pot

Thanks very much, Traintime. The sign for the department did not change when the department number changed? So the sign for Lyon remained the same from 1798 -1920?

Re: Maker NH on little mocha pot

Thanks again blakstone, if Paris or departments now is clear for me ( a Minerva from the Departments I did not find in Munich up to now). Where can I find that mint mark of the Assay Office of Lyon ("Arabic medial "m") in the Internet? (just to compare with the mark on the Mocha pot!)...

Re: Maker NH on little mocha pot

Thanks blakstone. The idea that "the standard numerals are located in different places" probably comes from Tardy 5th Edition English language (2005 Reprint) page 199: " For the Departments the head of Minerva is shown without the lock of hair; the mint-mark (Nos. 1 and 2) is placed u...

Again: Maker NH on little mocha pot

Hello JayT and all, here a new attempt (old post in "Single Image") with new photos of the mocha pot and its marks. I could clearly recognize the 1 near the forehead (therefore Paris). Is it possible that there are letters or digits under the chin too? Regards silverfan https://abload.de/i...

Re: Maker NH on little mocha pot

Thanks JayT. I cannot recognize if it is Paris or departments, because the Minerva is worn. Because of the position of Minerva and maker's mark I think it is clearly NH and not HN. Do know this maker?

Maker NH on little mocha pot

Does anybody know the maker who hides behind the initials NH. The mocha pot bears Minerva premier titre. On the Internet site of the French goverment I could not find this mark.

Re: Need help identifying these hallmarks

Bear with K is assayer J.C.S. Kessner 1819-1854, second assayer B is Ch.F. Deppe 1842-1847, so that you can date your item in this time frame.

Christiansen ? Jugendstil

I think it is a pap bowl for little children and a christening gift. Because spoon and bowl are made by Bruckmann and the spoon is designed by Christiansen I wonder if the bowl is designed by Christiansen too. Does anybody know if Christiansen is the author?

Fabergé - fake or not?

From a friend I got some Russian spoons (Moscow, kokoshnik 1908). At first I was very sceptical, but since I found the pattern in the Fabergé-Catalogue supplied by Dad, I am pretty sure that the spoons are authentic. Am I right? Weight 126 grams, 21,5 cm long. Had that pattern a name or a number? Do...
