Re: Apostle? Spoons ID

Hi, Are there no other mark perhaps small standard mark, the so called sword mark? The spoons and most marks appear to be crudely cast. I*S is an other pseudo mark imitating the maker's mark of the Amsterdam silversmith Jacob Schenk (1744) Could you please show us the other marks, the marks on the f...

Re: Unknown city and maker

Not fake nor hallmarks but fantasy marks. In the 18th to early 20th centuries the silversmiths working in the geographic regions of northern Persia were strongly influenced by the neighbouring Imperial Russian Empire. At the time, Russia used the Zolotnik System in which the 84 purity designation eq...

Re: Maker and date help

Hi, Silver Empire style tea/coffee spoon. Looking at the oval shield shape I believe it could read KP for Hendrik Kuyp, born 1744, registered silversmith in Amsterdam 1776-1810, the year he died. Maker of small silver work. Although we have also for Amsterdam KB in capital letters in a 'rectangle ' ...

Re: Dutch Spoon 18e century

Finally I think we know where we looking at. My first impression turned out to be correct the spoon is Belgian. Subject to reservation. Probably not a lion under a crown but under a fire striker for the Belgian city of Namur/Namen; The ancestral hallmark, given in 1440 by Philippe the Good, shows th...

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/640x480q90/921/yzHkg5.jpg Hi, Looking at the marks, I believe, going by the large crown, the type of shield, it could be a town mark or year letter (1761?). https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/640x480q90/922/w68V2x.jpg https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/640x480q90/...

Re: A Fine Dutch silver Coffee-Pot.

On known objects made by Johannes ten Stall, it shows his maker's mark ITS is under a comb . This suggests that the maker's mark a com b in a shield should be sought in Ten Stall's family. Johannes had no sons or brothers who were also silversmiths, ergo family members are not eligible. Indeed his f...

Re: A Fine Dutch silver Coffee-Pot.

Hi Gary,

Not the maker's mark of Gerard Baars. Please show us an enlarged clear image of this so far unknown makers mark. It could be an over-struck.

For a quick reference see:

Indeed could be Lisbon early 19th century.
For other marks perhaps: works of special interest
