Re: Russian Silver Server Mark Identity

Russian Silver Server Mark Identity

I'm guessing the townmark on this piece is Moscow and the makers mark is a complete mystery to me, so any help with identification will be very much appreciated. http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1589/6430983/12454042/414366227.jpg http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1589/6430983/12454042/414366226.jpg

Gorham Vanity Set Pill Boxes

Only that it came to me via San Diego, California. If the mark has been attributed to John Beckford Hill of Beverly, MA, I'll have to go along with that. Thank you.

Tea Caddy Spoon Hallmark & Maker Help Please

My uneducated guess is that the hallmark is Exeter and the maker is completely unknown to me. Any and all help will be very much appreciated.

Re: Hanoverian Rattail Spoon Mark

Any thoughts about the OW mark or the practice of marking such flatware thusly certainly welcome. Also identification of the amorial if that's what it is would be especially interesting.
