Re: Help with snuff box marks.

Your pics are a little blurry. What I see on the far right hand side is a hexagon with Diana's Head, looks like A= Vienna, 2=0.900 silver.

Re: Help with ID of marks, country of origin

Thanks...Yes I had looked at the Hanau marks and saw the S490 reference. I had also read the some of the older threads regarding the crossed keys. I also see windmill without blades. As far as the N in the shield...to me it clearly looks like a rams head. The mark is upside down in the photos. I don...

Re: Help with ID of marks, country of origin

I forgot to mention that one of the marks looks like Liegnitz City Mark. What did not make since to me is the cow or ram mark. Also, if you look at the handle there is an odd deity holding up the building...Poland just seems not right. There is another odd marking that I cant make out.

Help with ID of marks, country of origin

Hello, I'm hoping to get some help identifying the marks on this spoon. I picked it up 6 months ago, appears to be solid silver. Interesting piece but I don't have any info on it. Thanks for your help. http://i50.tinypic.com/63umb8.jpg http://i47.tinypic.com/1232pab.jpg

Re: Help with Chinese item? What is it?

Thanks for the info, I appreciate your ideas. The picture below is from the same collection. The dragon looks very similar and the item has the shanghai inscription, I assumed the piece below was from China. Different maker marks but a very similar silver mark, I thought the maker mark was written i...

Re: Help with Chinese item? What is it?

Okay, thanks for your ideas. The style of the pattern and markings sure look Chinese rather than Japanese to me. The idea of on incense burning box seems plausible. I thought it was an item from the 40s or 50s to be sold to tourists (stamped silver) but maybe not.

Re: Please help me indentify maker

Thanks for the additional information. The makers mark is incredible small on this fork, it is 3 mm by 9 mm which is less than 50% of the size of the assayers date mark. Why do you suppose they made marks that were so small relative to the assay, silver purity, and city marks?
