Hello, looks indeed like a bracelet. Which means that Deyhle also made jewellery like that. Must be the first piece of Deyhle jewellery to come to my eyes. Thanks ! Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, this looks indeed like the silver mark of Deyhle and I also agree with Your conclusion about the twice-struck mark. The style is around 1930/1940. Are You sure it is a bracelet ? How big is this ? My first impression was: it is a napkin ring. I do not think that Deyhle made jewellery of this ...

Hello, if You turn the row of marks 90 degrees to the right and then compare the lowest mark to that of Adolf Mayer (see German marks after 1886) - could it be the one ? Cannot see it to clearly on my screen. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, well - anything between 1886 and closure of the company. Just a hunch: between 1900 and 1930. Best wishes, Bahner

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

Hello, in 1931 Rueckert is still listed as a member of the VSF (Vereinigung der Silberwarenfabrikanten - no relation to the company VSF from Duesseldorf). 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, 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...
