Where in the world?? Far East? Middle Eastern?

HI All, This bracelet has no marks, high grade silver, gold overlay, turquoise. From an old estate. Unfortunately I had to clean, the pierced work was completely encrusted with old silver cleaner, really a mess. Can anyone comment on where it might have been made based on style or imagery? Has fish,...

Re: RFI Gilt silver Middle Eastern necklace

Hi,
Thank you for the information. I must have taken 25 photos of the marks, these were the best I was able to get...they are extremely tiny. Can't read them with my strongest loupe.
After your suggestion, I searched Portuguese jewelry & indeed there were several similar pieces.
Best,
Nancy

Re: 800 Silver Germany Necklace RFI

Thank you Bahner, I really struggled with dating the necklace, this is very helpful. I did several searches for Gebrueder Hollander & wasn't able to find any other references. If you know, can you say when they were producing jewelry? Again, many thanks.

800 Silver Germany Necklace RFI

Hi Everyone,

Hoping someone can comment on this necklace, marked Handarbeit 800 G H separated by a ship mast. No crown / crescent moon mark, does this indicate pre-1886?
Thanks in advance!

Hi Everyone, I’ve had no luck researching this necklace. Hoping someone out there can steer me in the right direction. I thought Middle Eastern, possibly Egypt. Gilt over silver? Marks are tiny! Nearest I can come to describing the shapes is a backward R and a U shape over two dots. Thanks for any h...

Re: SILVER CIGARETTE CASE

Hi Trev,

Many thanks for the links. I did previously look at the Turkish marks on http://www.925, but wasn't sure if they were a good match. The site showing the devices is excellent. I appreciate your help.
