Provincial Wine Label ?

Hi. Can anyone help determine by whom and where this wine lable was made? It is crescent shaped and engraved PORT. Looks Georgian. Stamped with makers mark three times to the back. IM or possibly WI. No other marks. Many thanks John https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pic...

Re: 18th Century Swedish chamber candlestick

Thank you AG - much appreciated, and thanks too for the webpage. I will check the cost of having it professionally repaired - maybe too expensive! Best regards John

18th Century Swedish chamber candlestick

Hi All. Can anyone help identify when, where and by who this chamber stick was made. I believe it to be from Sweden as it has the three crown mark. The diameter of the dish is about 13 cm. It weighs 157 grams. It unfortunately has some significant repairs/damage where the handle joins the dish. Woul...

Date of Dutch silver pomander vase

Hello All. Can anyone help establish the date of this openwork vase? It is marked for 2nd standard Dutch silver, makers mark R below a hammer (ST Reitsma?), a key stamp, and a capital letter T (not in a shield). There is another mark (possibly a date letter) partly obscured by the key. Would be grat...

Date of Dutch Table Spoon

Hi All. I think this spoon may have been made in Leiden by Jan Ultzen. But can anyone (OEL?) confirm the date? Many thanks John

Re: Early European spoon ?

Hi Theo. After another look at the maker's mark it would seem that it consists of 3 vertical lines which are crossed in the middle by a horizintal line. There is clearly more to the mark above what can be seen but this has been largly covered by silver solder when repaired. What looks like a C at th...

Early European spoon ?

Hi - can anyone help identify where and when this spoon was made. My initial thoughts when I aquired it (without any references) was that it might be Scandinavian, but I am now more inclined to think it may be from East Germany or the Baltic region. It is hallmarked on the back of the bowl with an e...

Re: Danish Teapot Kreiberg

Hi All - many thanks for the replies. Hose, it seems that the date of the teapot is earlier than the dates mentioned for Kreiberg in your link. Could there have been an earlier Kreiberg? Also, I see they were working in a town called Nykobing but also that there are a number of towns called Nykobing...

Danish Teapot Kreiberg

Hi All - This appears to be a Danish silver teapot dating 1888. But is it a teapot? Its wooden handle is at right angles to the spout and there is a removeable silver strainer which fits into the pot. Would be grateful for any information about it and the maker Kreiberg. Many thanks Joho. https://ww...

Norwegian Wedding Pin Solje ?

Hi All, I have this old silver brooch and wonder whether it may be a Norwegian or Scandinavian wedding pin. It has a circular silver frame to which are attached hanging circular loops with hanging silver tassels. The central movable pin is gilded. The back of the pin is stamped with letters TG, pres...

Yes I had pondered that. I guess he aquired the box in Logrono - possibly a gift from a local person for some medical help he may have given? I suspect the inscription was engraved once he had returned to England...

Re: Antique Spanish silver box. Cordoba?

Hi Trev. It would seem that Blas Antonio Austria is the front runner as the maker of the box. Looking at the mark again it is possible the STRIA is preceeded by either a U or an AU. Almost there I think! Many thanks for your help. John

Re: Antique Spanish silver box. Cordoba?

Muchas Gracias Funkel. It would therefore seem that the box was assayed in Cordoba sometime between 1759 and 1767. Trev has the name of an 18th century Cordoba silversmith Blas Antonio Austria. This seems the closest to the makers mark on the box. I have had another look at the mark and it is possib...
