Thank you Bahner, I guess I will enjoy it for some years until further research or mere luck lets me discover a designer or maker.

The factory of Jakob Mönch closed in Offenbach in 1972, so he himself did likely not move. They did metal ware in all kinds of metal for the local leather industry, which sounds like less sophisticated work than this box is. Still the idea of a descendant is possible... Best wishes Joschua

Hello Silverport First of all, let me say thank you for your kind and interesting reply. I will try to gather some information on Mönch. There are many more German cities starting with the letter M and interesting enough two bigger ones and plenty of smaller ones are very close to Offenbach on the ...

Lidded Box - Art Deco

I recently acquired this cute small box that reminded me of Austrian or Italian art deco works by famous designers. I cant find any control marks and I think in Austria 800/°°° also was not really a widespread silver standard. For Italy I would have expected an oval stamped around the 800. I have...

Sorry for the delay, I was on vacation. However the only other marks I could find are a repetition of the already pictured "ADLER" mark and a mark "88..." for the silver standard. It seems as if there is nothing that would give any evidence regarding the maker.

The images should show up, maybe that free server where I put them on was down for a while.
Any clues about that hardly recognizable mark at the upper left, or the mark with the little mouse in the centre???

Thank you so much Bahner. Do you know if there is any book or other resource were I could find that mark, or even additional information about the company?

Enameled Russian Silver Box from 1880

Since I dont have any ideas about the meaning of cyrillic letters, I wonder if someone is out there who can identify this maker... The piece also has a German sounding jewelers stamp: "Adler" and the enameling dates it to 1883 on the backside...It is about the size of a deck of cards, too big for ci...

German candelabra, mid 20th century

I am also uncertain about this maker...This great Encyclopedia lists two similar makers hallmarks, but yet both seem slightly different to this mark under closer inspection. Could this be a later version of Wolters mark, or is it something different? Thank you for any help. Greetings from Germany Jo...

German flowerstand, ca. 1907

Any idea who could be the maker? Any help is appreciated... The hallmarks always come out a bit blurry on my photos... The piece has a dedictation on the other side, which very freely translated means something like: Given by the Hamburg - America (ship) line 1907 Greetings from Germany Joschua http...
