EA with this logo stands for Emporio Armani, the second brand of Armani family.
Not Art Deco but modern: not sure of the material because there are no marks indicating silver.

Re: Hanau or France?

Hi, Simon Rosenau had well documented ties with Hanau industry, most notably with Neresheimer and Schleissner. It has been postulated that most of ‚‚historical‚‚ silver marked by Rosenau was actually made by other Hanau silversmiths. The example bellow shows SR mark with chalice and pellets mark, wh...

Re: Gold ring identification help

Hi, Imperial Russian gold had three standards in zolotnik: 56 , 72 and 92 . Pure gold is 96 zolotnik, so it is easy to calculate from the equation 96 = 1000: the value of 56 is 583.3 or 14K, 72 is 750 or 18K and 92 is 958.3 or 23K. In short, 58 was not gold standard.(Theoretically, it would be 610.5...

Re: Unknown marks

Are there dots in front of 0 ?

If no dots, then it`s 2000. I think I saw lower dot in front of 0, therefore we assumed it was 1990.

Re: Fruitbowl - Is this silver or plate?

Hi,
It is solid silver of .800 fineness made by E. Schürmann & Co in Frankfurt, Germany.
German Reichsmark crescent and crown was not obligatory, meaning the bowl is properly made.

Re: Bowl- origin?

Hi,
Looks like the mark of Hugo Böhm/Schwäbisch Gmünd (on the right).
German Reichsmark crescent and crown for silver on the left.
But, as suggested, larger images are really needed.
