Re: ЕП and "I. KOPF." mark on a spoon

Qrt.S, thank you

Postnikov,
Your meaning is unclear, the response seems to be stating the you feel you have been mistreated. I suspect this is more a problem of languages than intention. Would you please restate your message in different words, I would like to be sure of your meaning.

Thanks, Tom

You got off topic again.

You are both off topic. End this petty squabbling, it is inappropriate for the forum, counter to the spirit of the website and in violation of the Posting Requirements.

Re: help identifying makers mark

Can you help me with this?


We'd love to, but you'll have to help make that possible by submitting a reasonably sized image of the marks.

Re: Need help-who is maker? Sterling ID bracelet

Hi, I believe it must be Société Parisienne de Bijouterie, mark first registered Paris 1902. Their mark is Ste.P with anchor in between. I cannot imagine that the responsible bureaucracy would have allowed for the confusion of two separate companies, one Ste.F, the other Ste.P, to both use an anch...

Re: Need help-who is maker? Sterling ID bracelet

Hi, The mark looks very much like a French "obus" maker's mark, used on exported silver, the "sterling" mark would not conflict if French and made for export. If you could provide a clear image of the letters and the symbol between, we may be able to ID the maker. Regards, Tom ps...

Re: unknown russian mark from about 1914

Wologda is a russian city, but why it is written in latin letters? latin letters and Germanic spelling. I read the mono as "H. Struck", just a guess, but I suspect the spoon was presented to Herr Struck, or commissioned by him, as a keepsake of time spent in Vologda in 1914. Regards, Tom

Re: 18th Century Chocolate Pot French and British Hallmarks

Hi, I agree with Mike about the leopard's head and the journeyman's mark, but I read the date as 1830/1. Don't know if the spout lid is an addition or replacement, but I'm sure it was made from a London watch case or similar item. This would explain the lack of a duty mark, also, the lion passant wo...

Re: Mexico Silver El Paisan? Baby Spoon

Hi V V,
As mentioned, I think the written and pictorial mark are probably from the same workshop. At present, there is just no way to know. It is pure conjecture, but not without sense.

Re: Mexico Silver El Paisan? Baby Spoon

Mexican pieces of this period are often higher in purity than sterling, also, on occasion, lower. Whichever it is, it really does not matter.

Re: Mexico Silver El Paisan? Baby Spoon

Yes, it is El Faison, meaning the Pheasant. There is also a 30's/40's maker that uses a pictorial mark of a walking pheasant in full profile, in conjunction with the "Mexico Silver" mark. I think both the text and pictorial marks are probably from the same workshop. As the output seems to ...

Re: Scandinavian silver marks help id please

I agree, Algeria or Morocco, the left and center marks are none too clear and may have been intentionally effaced. The right hand mark is rectangular and has been overstamped with the crowned shield mark with the boat, I think we might be seeing a mark from Libya for the first time. Below is the sea...
