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. The stalinistic architecture on the left one also points at a more recent make. Maybe pieces like these are still in production, they appear so often...

Hello, this is a German 'Bierzipfel'. It was used by students to show which 'Verbindung' (student's association) one was member of. The engraving is the symbol for that particular Verbindung. There were dozens and I cannot identify it. The motto of this particular association must habe been 'Ich die...

Hello, Germany has neither import nor export marks. This could be German, the style might suggest a Hanau origin. Best wishes, Bahner

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...

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, 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
