Re: taper stick with fish mark

Hi Sarah!

Your mark makes me think to french or german hallmarks from the xviiie.

Unfortunately the style of your item do not match with this period...

Wait for others opinions.

Don

Re: Is this Italian?

Hi Jag!

Why do think it could be Italian? What about ''silver plate'' possibility ? Have you tried the acid test?

Help identifying those marks

Hi all! Here is what I suggest to be a silver made salt and pepper set: is that right? Then, what about those hallmarks I don't know (usually people say "Persian")? https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg Thanks for your help! Regards, Don

Re: Origin of this dish

One more thing AG2012: what's your opinion about the french "head of boar" on this dish where as it is a portuguese dish? Do you thing custom officers thought it was a franch dish as they don't know thoses marks?

Re: Origin of this dish

Hallmark looks to be a "B" or a "P" under a crown: could its origin be Portugal?
