Hello, this is far from being an authentic old Augsburg piece. The dancing putti show the style of around 1900. This is surely from Hanau, the marks are pseudo marks. My guess: maker is Schleissner. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, I have found no information whatsoever on a Trunck in Strassburg. There was a Ph. Trunck in Pforzheim, maker of silver chains, small silver jewellery etc. He is first documented around 1908 and seems to have been active well into the 1920ies. His mark was: letters 'P' and 'T' intertwined. I a...

Hello, yes, both are Mayer's. Trunck was a Jeweller and probably stamped his name as the retailer of a Mayer piece. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, both are correct. The mark on Your buckle is the mark used on pieces for export. It often comes with as silver fineness higher than 800 or 835. Both marks have been documented in books published in the 1920ies. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, is it possible that this is plate ? The description sounds just like the marks used on Bruckmann silverplated flatware. A picture of the pattern might help. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, the style cries out >Hanau<, first half of the 20ieth century. The mark on the right hand side is very much like a mark used by Carl Kurz from Hanau. The other marks are most likely just pseudo marks. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, even this mark is listed as that of Trunck, this is not so. It is the mark of Martin Mayer from Mainz, first registered in 1894. It is the wheel from the coat of arms of Mainz, together with a little star on the side. The two digit number represents the object: '13' is for match boxes, '17' f...

Hello, to round this up - Thiele in his book on Hanau silver reproduces two marks used by Josef Oswald from Freigericht Neuses (Hanau region), but cannot identify the marks. One is the "813 H" for fineness, the other is "N 6" like the dateletter for 1942. Both come in a rectangle just like Finnish m...

Hello, as there seems to be no citymark, there is a little guesswork involved. There is a Ludwig Friedrich Leopold Luer in the city of Celle, Germany. His mark as documented looks pretty much like the one here. Luer was born in 1831 and started his business in 1856. Later he emigrated to the USA. Pl...

Hello, this is Bruckmann. The design can be attributed to Carl Zeller, around 1903/05. The additional mark appears quite regularly on Bruckmann pieces, it is unidentified. Dreifuss probably is a jewellerer and retailer. Best wishes, Bahner

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 ...
