Re: Assistance with Sterling Basket Maker's Mark

Hi - this piece is not American, nor Art Nouveau to my eye - it appears to read 'Π97', have seen similar marks on fairly recent Greek production, but perhaps others will take a look...

Re: Feeling silver?

Eh, I'm sure that most who've dealt in silver for many years understand that feeling of just 'knowing' when picking up a piece, but have never known anyone who identified silver by its temperature in their hand. As said, silver has a high thermal conductivity, and since copper is almost as conductiv...

Re: Date of Charles Robbins Mark

Rainwater shows those Robbins marks as in use circa 1900-1926, but I think more likely they came into use after 1912 when the firm became the ''The Robbins Co.', and have seen it on pieces that probably date as late as the '30s and perhaps even into the early '40s. Can't make out what the emblem on ...

Re: Scandanavian Rnamel Brooch

Hi - welcome to the forums. It's Norwegian, and you have the marks upside down, it's '925S' indicating sterling silver, the maker's mark is a backward 'K' for Edvin Kristiansen/Kristiansen & Lande - please see the second to last post on this thread: https://www.925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t...

The image in the link for 'Kings III' is actually "King George' - and pieces can change over the years, since you mention the patent date isn't present on yours, it's most likely later production...

Re: Incorrect silver pattern description in web page

Hi - welcome to the forums. Can only say that I agree that the pattern shown as 'New Queens' is actually 'King George'. Carpenter and the JCK Index also show 'New Queens' as introduced in 1895...

Re: Trip Konig oder Chuck Koenig?

Not sure I understand your question, the item you show appears to be a tomato or cucumber server in Gorham's 'King George' pattern, introduced in 1894 - I'm not familiar with a 'King Charles' pattern, and 'Kings III', introduced circa 1885, while somewhat similar, is not at all the same as 'King Geo...
