Re: SPOON. P&M. CAN'T ID MAKER OR MARKINGS. HELP?

Hi, Welcome to the forum. You have a very nice American spoon with an interesting decorated drop. I believe it is by Rowland Parry and James Musgrave. The following excerpt is from Ensko's "American silversmiths and Their Marks" PARRY & MUSGRAVE 1793, Philadelphia, Pa., at 42 South Sec...

Re: Possibly Scandinavian Beaker

Hi, I agree with Cheryl, the marks seem more consistent with Japanese manufacture than any other location. On the other hand, I'm fairly sure that the design is by Alphonse LaPaglia, dating from his days at International silver. Believe I had a couple of these goblets with Lapaglia/International mar...

Hi Peter, I've checked and re-checked, all instances of the string of code that was causing the 1/2 page issue have been edited out. As my phone no longer has the issue, I suspect that your device may just be stubborn about refreshing its cache. If the problem still persists, you should be able to h...

Hi Jag, I've never before seen this mark, but I strongly suspect it is an earlier mark of the same William DeHart listed here at: http://www.925-1000.com/americanMod_1.html The Albuquerque, New Mexico directory for 1953 lists - "Silversmith Studio" of Wm. R DeHart jr.. William Dehart also ...

Hi, I've seen this mark a handful of times on Arts & Crafts handwrought silver jewelry. The usual attribution is to the 'Odd Krafters Shop', with location listed as either Boston or Chicago, first quarter 20th century. Does anyone know if they received mention in Darling's "Chicago Silversm...

Re: please help with unknown hallmark

Hi,

McGrew "tentatively" attributes the mark to Montgomery & Co. and/or Morgan Morgans, successors to Albert Coles. However, I believe it is more likely a "W", as does Cheryl in http://925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=35384

Re: A sugar bowl

Hi,
Looks like a Hanau piece, suspect the marks are pseudos we've not seen before, Simon Rosenau of Bad Kissingen seems a good possibility for the maker.
