Hello, the heart-shaped mark is a maker's mark. Without a town mark it is quite impossible to ascribe this to a specific maker, as there are several makers using a maker's mark much like this one. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, Albinmüller's few jewellery designs were mostly executed by the Darmstadt based goldsmith Müller. I am not aware of Albinmüller designs for massproduced jewellery. His mark is a big 'A' with a smaller 'M' underneath. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, I dimly remeber having read somewhere, that the two-tower mark was introduced around 1900, give or take a decade. So these pieces are comparatively new. My guess - just a hunch - from the last 50 years. I have seen the two-tower mark on pieces from various Danish cities, so it must have been ...

Hello, on the right one you can see the Sputnik, the first Russian sattelite from 1957, so it is much younger. The lady is just a symbol for progress.

Hello, in print the mark of Böhm (not Bohm) looks like laurel, so I guess this is what it is. In 1913 Böhm retired and sold the company to Wilhelm Schwab, who continued production under the name of Schwab & Co., still using Böhm's laurel-mark. I guess Your piece was made around 1907/10, so it...
