Hello, Meyen was born around 1811, became master on January 19, 1846 and must have founded his company around that time. Later he celebrated 1845 as year of foundation, which seems a litte strange, as he would have to become a master first to do so. Anyway. To my knowledge the company existed until ...

Hello, can't say I see the mark too clearly on my screen, but if this a gent's head with a hat (much like Mercury's) then it is probably Meyen from Berlin. Best wishes, Bahner

Rueckert filed bankruptcy at the end of 1931 or the beginning of 1932. The legal proceedings concerning that bankruptcy ended in March 1932. It s...

Hallo, that is Rueckert from Mainz. Founded in the 19th century, flatware-production was given up around 1930 and the patterns and the machinery were aquired by Gebr. Reiner. Gebr. Reiner still exists, but they have no knowledge of Rückert or even the exact date of aquisition. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, this is the mark on an unidentified silversmith, working in Moskau between ca. 1872 and 1881. The horseman is - if I am not mistaken - St. George. Adler might be the retailer of this piece. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello - truly a wild guess. No such thing in German as 'Deutsches Versuchs Muster'. Maybe it stands for the organisation which gave this cross - military ? ecclesiastical ? - away ? Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, definitely not Berndorf, the marks are unlike any marks used in Austria. Plus the Berndorf bear, either standing or walking, is always looking left. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, the 'D' is not the date letter for 1826, so the dating is not what I originally thought. Unfortunately there are no complete lists of Dresden date letters (at least I am not aware of it) so it is difficult to solve this problem. One possibility: the pieces are older, there are date letters fo...

Hello, that is Louis Haensch from Dresden, listed in 1820, the shop still mentioned in 1903. This is not plate. The mark on the left hand side is the city mark of Dresden (two crossed swords plus 'D' and '13' - one needs a lot of imagination to see this here), the zig-zag-line means that silver was ...

Hello, this is an icecream-server. The snake-mark of Delheid was registered on January 23rd, 1862 and used unchanged at least until the late 1970ies. The second mark is to fuzzy on my screen to see much, but it looks French. Maybe You could post a better pic ? Best wishes, Bahner
