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

Hello, the first mark on the left ( 'A' with crown and twig) can be found in identical form on Neresheimer pieces, combined with a second mark (usually a letter) and with an imitated Wertheim-mark, which looks a little like the mark on the right hand side. Maybe this third mark is struck incompletel...

Hello, the use of the word 'Sterling' on German jewellery would imply a production from ca. 1960 till the present. There is a German maker, Willi Nonnenmann from Pforzheim, whose mark strikingly resembles Your description. Maybe he is (or rather was, he is no longer listed in the directory) the one ...
