Re: Set of Spoons from Hamburg with different makers, maker “H.W.F.K.”

Using the input from Theo I found an old post ferom 2009 from Theo and Blackstone.
There they state:
Heinrich Friedrich Krumstroh (1813-1876), Master 1842

Assay master "C" is again Friedrich Christoph Greve (1829-1854)

So this spoon dates between 1842 and 1854

Re: Set of Spoons from Hamburg with different makers, maker “Wally”

Following Baner's hint I searched the internet on Watty. It seems they are somehow famous silversmith in Hamburg. We have Joachim Heinrich Watty (1787-1845) and his son Johann Heinrich Watty (1816-1889). He got the concession number 66 in 1843. Assy master "C" is Friedrich Christoph Greve ...

Re: Set of Spoons from Hamburg with different makers, maker “IDL”

I missed some maker marks on the Hamburg page of the World Marks section: https://www.925-1000.com/Fger_hamburg_01.html So IDL is Johann Diedrich Laué (1808-1824) Assay master "V" is Johann Heinrich Zell (1816-1826) So the latest date for the spoon is 1824, wich is about 30 years earlier t...

Small spoon, is this London? And what year?

I got this small spoon and struggle to date it. From the style/decoration the 1790ies would fit, which would be 1792 for the small "r". Bur the shape of the letter does not fit, also the shape of the cartouches do not fit, and the style of the lion is also different. Can you help me? Thank...

Hi let me show you different Jezler marks. First, a mark from the late 1800, about 1880: https://abload.de/img/img_53903nkln.jpg This mark is about the same age, 1880 to 1900: https://abload.de/img/img_5394ifkf0.jpg Then here a nice small mark from around 1900 to 1920 in Art Nouveau style: https://a...

Re: Help with marks on the spoons

So, both spoons are from Geneva. The spoon with PA makers mark is from Paul Aberle, 1825-1888, in Geneva since 1847. On the 3eme mark: Geneva was one of the few Swiss towns with a system to control the fineness of silver alloys used. The marking system from 1815 to 1881 was as follows: 1st standard ...

Re: Help with marks on the spoons

Hi I am currently away from my books, so just a first shot: The spoon on the top is Swiss, ETTINER is Vettiner, the mark of Antoine-Charles Vettiner, 1818-1866, from Geneva. JJ is an early Jezler (Schaffhausen) mark, here probably only as a retailer. Date them around 1850 to 1860. More to follow. Re...

Re: HELP Needed; Truly No Idea About History, etc.

Hi
This is a Zeppeloin Airship Cocktail shaker and traveling bar, made in the late 1920ies or early 1930ies.
Most probably not sterling, but silver plated. But no disappointment. This is a great item. Such objects are highly collectible. Very nice item.

Re: Assistance with Interesting German Beakers

I am under the impression they are from 1979, not 1879. The marking system with crown, moon and finness in thousands was introduced 1888. The date indication is 76, very likely excluding an event in 1876 for which they were used. Could be a jubilee referring to 1876, maybe 25th anniversery or so, th...
