Kokoshnik with 875

Yesterday I had a discussion with a dealer about a set of cutlery bearing the second kokoshnik accompanied by 875. As far as I know this hallmark was used after 1994. A site, in which, however, there are many errors, claims that it has been used since 1954. However I could not find a site where the ...

Re: North european, Hanau?

It is a tankard that will be auctioned
From the photos it looks beautiful, but I don't have the chance to see it with my own eyes.
Thank you all for your help.

Re: North european, Hanau?

Hello Sasropakis
Many thanks for information.
Actually I found other posts where I could see the Danzig hallmark for comparison.
Too bad that many are now without images.
Sincerely

Re: Any ideas on these marks?

Very unlikely to be solid French silver. I would say it's silverplate.

Austrian, they say. it's true?

Yesterday I saw two candlesticks with these marks.

The seller claims they are austrian, but the hallmark is different from the Austrian one I know.
Can anyone clarify the matter?
Thanks

A bishop's emblem

I have a 1773 incense boat with the duty mark of Ljubljana. It is engraved with the emblem of a bishop.
Can anyone recognize it?

Re: An antique (?) tankard

Hi legrandmogol
I found the tankard on the auction site you indicated. It's really the same. IAS is indicated as master's mark.
But I wonder: how can there be the master's mark on the sides of the tremolierstich? what meaning can it have?
Has anyone found a similar punching at other times?

Re: An antique (?) tankard

Thank you all for your input. I could think of doing an electronic test if the tankard was mine, but it is unthinkable for a dealer to take the test on demand. The seller, as often happens to the Parma's "Mercante in fiera", says: I do not know much, I have just found this object and I hav...

An antique (?) tankard

Hello everyone I have often heard "If you don't know what you are buying, don't buy!" and so I did; now I ask for advice. Yesterday I saw a beautiful tankard that looks ancient and northern European, but that has marks that I can't decipher. It's not really cheap and, as the seller says, i...

Re: Papal States Fork & Spoon c.1700?

First of all I apologize, because, looking better, Marco is Sebastiano's nephew and not son, as I wrongly wrote. The page is taken from the book Maestri argentieri gemmari e orafi di Roma, by Anna Bulgari Calissoni. https://i.postimg.cc/PLJrmGQh/CALIROMA225-copia.jpg Below you can see some examples ...

Re: Papal States Fork & Spoon c.1700?

There are actually two silversmiths with that mark: Gamberucci Sebastiano (1633-1658) and his son Marco (around 1650-1680). Gambero in Italian is shrimp. Even the papal mark seems seventeenth century. The strange thing is that the marks seem cast rather than struck and worn. Only you who have the pi...

Re: French or other??

The eagle with the letter R is the "ricognizione" mark (ascertainment) for objects made before 1814, in use in the kingdom of Sardinia. The other marks could be those in use from 1809 to 1814 under the French domination. However the letter B does not belong to any Pimontese district. Best ...
