Hello, it's French, the maker is E. Faivre, out of business before 1970. That's all I know, no first name, no city, sorry. 'Prèmier titre' is for 950/1000 parts silver. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, 'HGB' is Hedbergs Guld and Boettverkstad, active from 1946-1961 in Stockholm. The 'I9' is for the year of production: 1959. One of the smaller marks (I cannot see it clearly on my screen), should be the town mark of Stockholm. As to the fifth mark - I cannot see that either. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, that is from Czechoslowakia. The '4' stands for 835/1000 parts silver. If the background of the '4' (I cannot see it clearly on my screen) is checkered, it is the mark introduced in 1942. If it just depicts three slopes, it is the one introduced in 1927. 'WL' is probabaly the maker - sorry, h...

Hello, this looks like Moskov silver from around 1880-1890. The Russian guarantee mark of that time is a horseman with the 84. The eagle (double-headed ?) probably stands for a supplier to the Russian Imperial Court. The maker ('BS' and 'BSG' or 'BSH') is unidentified. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, before You scrap this, post a pic of the pattern. There are two patterns by Hammesfahr that are being sought after. In any case: it is impossible to tell the early 1920ies-Hammesfahr stuff from the pieces produced in the 1930ies or 1940ies. Hammesfahr was indeed the first to make stainless-st...

Hello, BMF plus the hiking man is for Bergische Metallwarenfabrik Deppmeyer and Company. First in Solingen, later in Burgkunstadt, Bavaria. Founded in 1908, active at least until the 1980ies. If I am not mistaken, production of silver cutlery was taken up after 1945. This BMF made just cutlery, so t...

Hello, in 1925 there is a maker of plated goods listed in Kopenhagen, Denmark: ''Elektropletvarefabrik & metalvarefabrik Victoria''. Owner is Nicolai Jensen. Maybe he is the one ? Perhaps the mark 'VTA' is just short for 'Victoria' ? Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, this is Swedish silver. Y4 is for 1853. There is an And. Theodor Barkman in the town of Varberg. Active around 1828 to 1865, died in 1867. The town mark of Varberg is a goat, reaching up a tree, all inside a circle. Sounds pretty much like this is the one. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, the Friodur-process was invented and patented by Henckels in the late 1930ies, but due to the war it was not introduced on a large scale until the early 1950ies. The WMF company bought its blades from Henckels at that time, that is why its cutlery often has the Friodur-Henckels mark. The '90'...

Hello, this is comparatively new stuff from Germany. The ''n'' in a shield on the left hand side is the mark of Neresheimer from Hanau/Germany. They had specialised in imitating old silver objects.

Hi all, the mark of Murat (C and M, plus a flower with two leaves, actually the flower of a blooming mulberry-bush, 'mure' is French for mulberry) looking pretty much like Your mark, was published by 'Paris Bijoux' in 1970 in their dictionary of marks. So I rather think Murat is the one. Best wishes...

Hello, the maker is most likely C. Murat, Paris, Rue de Turbigo 89. The date is hard to say. My guess: first half of the 20th century. Probably a beaker. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, this is plate. 90 is the weight of silver in 'Gramm' used in electroplating. 'Rostfrei' is 'stainless'. There was a retailer in Solingen, 'Moellers and Co.', active in the 1950ies and 60ies. His was mostly a mail-order business. Maybe he is the one. Best wishes, Bahner
