Hello, if this is a '12', it means 12 Lot, standing for 750 / 1000 parts silver. Íf this is a letter, it might be the town mark. This would also point at silver from Germany, probably of a low quality. I checked for the Name Aschhoff but found no mention of it. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, this is plate. In Germany the '100' usually stands for the weight of the silver used in electroplating. As to the other marks - haven't got a clue. Sorry. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, the mark on the upper right corner is the city mark of Hanau, Germany. The badly struck makers mark is that of Karl Soehnlein from Hanau, active from 1888 until 1957, when Schleissner in Hanau took over the company. Finke is probably the photographer. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, this seems to be the mark of Berlin, Germany: a bear and the letter K (mark is upside down), used between 1819 and 1854. The letter B is that of the second warden, used only between 1842 and 1847. R would be the mark of the maker or retailer - whoever he was. Best wishes, Bahner.

Hello, this is most likely Carl Schnauffer from Dresden, a jeweller and wholesaler. It is possible he did not actually make this piece. He probably was no longer active after 1945. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, this is Kurt Poetzsch from Weissenfels, Sachsen (Saxony), Germany. He started using this mark about 1932 or 1933 and continued using it until the 1960ies. Just a gut feeling - but this is rather 1930ish than postwar. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, that is Garagnon from Pforzheim, Germany. This mark was used from the early 1930ies to the late 1960ies. The use of sterling is uncommon in Germany before 1945. My guess is, this was made in the 1950ies or 1960ies. The company is listed in the directories until the late 1960ies, it is no long...

Hello, there seems to be no Danish or Swedish maker using the mark 'J.L.H.', so Norwegian is probably correct. The mark 'DA+' is that of D.J. Aubert of 's Gravenhage, Netherlands. It is in use since 1958. He must be the guy who imported this. Are You sure the import mark reads 'Z 1' ? That is for st...
