Re: Please help me about this ring

http://i50.tinypic.com/2hr0nld.jpg Cannot tell for Sweden but people often want their silver or jewelry tested at the assay office.One does not need to be an importer to ask for it. The ring is old,19th century;the way it is made,settings are worn and one prong - claw - in the setting is missing.Th...

Re: Identifying an old ring. possibly from WW2

I respect the reliable provenance; meaning there is no doubt the ring was found among other Nazi things in the attic, and not disturbed within 70 years or so. You should try this excellent British forum on WW II relics; they know much and would probably answer the most important question; is it genu...

Re: Russian Centerpiece? Help please...

Thank you all so much for your kind attention to my questions. You may be interested to watch an engraver doing it in a traditional way (the block is moved by hand). The piece of silver he does is flat, though, a bit easier than three dimensional objects. The second video shows machine engraving pro...

Re: Unusual silver ring with unknown marks

Compare: Rosenberg, band IV;Norway,Bergen,page 422: mark number 7754 ``Sieben Punkte ohne Turm`` (seven dots without tower) shown for 1844. Rosenberg, Bergen, page 423, mark number 7758 shown for 1820. Cannot be later — the marks have changed. So it is Bergen, 1825 , there was no 925 number for stan...

Re: Russian Centerpiece? Help please...

Amazing piece of history;thank you so much.May I ask again? Is this kovsh shown here cast? It does not look hand engraved to me.Does this fact help in recognizing genuine silver - deep engraving like this is vary difficult and time consuming? Punching lucrative fake marks on already existing kovshi ...

Cup and saucer - no glass insert?

http://i49.tinypic.com/347z1c5.jpg Cup and saucer by Franz Rumwolf, parcel gilt, Vienna, Diana’s head. The question: was there a glass or china insert in there? Unlike tea cup/glass cup holders, it seems no insert would fit in here; it would fall out when drinking. Besides, it was probably meant fo...

Re: Russian Centerpiece? Help please...

Excuse me, I did not follow the discussion regarding this fake; please, tell me whether the kovsh is cast? (Qrt.S Mentioned marks being in the exactly same place).There is only one close-up here and it looks cast to me; the entire décor. So deep engraving, chiseling or, better to say, practically c...

Re: Help With A piece of jewewry Please!

It should be Edward Durban & Co,Birmingham,but there is something else in the mark in front I cannot read well. 1890..1897. Date letter is not clear.

Re: Unusual silver ring with unknown marks

The 7 dots is Bergen 25 should be 1825. II over M is tax mark for a specific month - February There are rings based on traditional folk jewellery with small rings attached to the main ring,although the design I saw was bit different, but it makes sense with several smaller attachments.Otherwise,the ...

Re: Marks on egg cups

Right.I thought so,but it is easy to be smart now when you told me.No harm done,though;it was given with the Russian egg purse I posted today in Russian silver.Will check it for silver anyway,although tired of filing things to reach base metal.Will tell you the result.
Thanks a lot.
