Re: German Silver hunter trophy

No,it is something completely different;as far as I can tell it is the mark of WMF Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik (upside down).Compare with full mark (your mark is on the right).Very famous, but not silver.

Hi, I managed to open links to your images:PB engraved, possible initials of the owner, nothing to help with the maker. The medallion is too small to read the inscription,but it bears the coat of arms of German town Bremen. If you want more info I suggest to take better close up of the inscription a...

Hi,
Looks like late 19th century (trioni mark).
I think Torino XVIII century mark is not genuine.

Re: German or French ?

Storck & Sinsheimer is believed to have been absorbed by Gebrüder Neumann in 1926,meaning the latter must have existed before 1926.
According to another source (Catawiki:Femke Haitsma Mulier and Dennis van Kampen) Gebrüder Neumann existed 1900-1949.

Re: Help with maker and age

My conversion chart says one German (Prussian) Loth is 14,62 gram.
https://www.convert-me.com/en/convert/h ... =loth&v=24
Therefore 24 Loth is 350.8 gram.Not important difference, though.

Re: Need help to identify candlesticks

Hi,
The absence of crescent and moon does not guarantee earlier date.
There are Gebrüder Deyhle silver items made in the first half of 20th century without Reichsmark and positively identified and dated based on import marks from other countries.

Re: Help with Danish spoon

Hi, Danish assayer Fabricius is well known and his F mark is easily recognized.On the other hand,Denmark has well established and consistent hallmarking system, including zodiac signs for months when an item was made,town marks etc. In short,it is very unlikely to have only assayer's mark without ad...
