Puiforcat Beaker

I am trying to find out more about this silver beaker. It is made by Puiforcat and designed by Jean Puiforcat, but is not signed with his full name as similar examples of this design are. I was wondering if anyone knows what date it would be (1920s or 1930s?). It measures 3 inches in height. If anyo...

Pap boat

I just found this silver pap boat with very (almost completely) rubbed marks. It also has various engravings; initials on the base and a crest (probably a later addition) on the side. I was wondering if anyone would be able to estimate the date. Various aspects of the hallmarks can be made out if yo...

1902 Powell bottle stopper

Here is a bottle stopper made for a James Powell and Sons decanter in 1902. The makers mark ends in A.S and I have been trying to find out who made it. The JP&Ss silver mark was not in use until 1903 and before that date Powell did not make its own silver. I was wondering if anyone knows who mad...

18th century salt spoon - maker?

Here is a fiddle pattern salt spoon. It has two marks, one of which is a makers mark with an R in it, the other looks like either a London mark for 1756-75 or another city mark - one side is perfectly rectangular. http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg311/jok23/100_0625.jpg" onclick="window.open(this...

Franz Bahner asparagus tongs

I was wondering if anyone could identify the design/designer of these asparagus tongs made by Franz Bahner. I am aware that van de Velde and Gebhard Duve designed silver for that firm - could this be by one of them? What sort of period would they date from? Thanks for your help. http://i251.photobuc...

Here is a better photo of the head mark. I can't work out what the letters are, but they appear to be quite distinct.

eighteenth century spoon makers mark/date.

Here is a small teaspoon with the lion mark and one other mark. It could either be a date letter or part of the makers mark. Does anyone have any idea of the date of the spoon? Can anyone figure out what the letter mark is? Any ideas would be much appreciated. http://i408.photobucket.com/albums/pp16...

Gold cufflinks - makers mark

I would like to know who the maker of these cufflinks was. The mark appears to contain the letters G K. The material is 14K gold and I would think they are around 1950s American. Any suggestions would be appreciated. http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg311/jok23/02/3.jpg" onclick="window.open(this....

Here is a fiddle pattern spoon with some unusual marks. I can't attribute any of the marks, but one is an anchor (similar to the mark of Greenock, Scotland). The provenance of the spoon is Scottish which makes me think the marks are Scottish. Any ideas as to origin and maker would be greatly appreci...

I would like to know the maker of this spoon. It is marked with the head for Italian 800 silver. The other mark is what looks like a crossed spoon, knife and fork between the letters A R. Does anyone have an idea of what this means? http://s251.photobucket.com/albums/gg311/jok23/?action=view&cur...
