Re: Large soviet (USSR) ring, possibly agate

The stone could be Seraphinite, rather rare mineral from Eastern Siberia (across the Ural mountain close to Sverdlovsk region).

Re: Beautiful cup-18th century

The very size of the foot base may be debatable but there are clear signs of foot repair (red arrow) and maker's mark is cut almost in half because the base was soldered over it.There is no way to apply a punching tool on uneven rim of the base unless the original base was removed and the new base s...

Re: Vesta case

``seamless`` means the vesta was made as one piece (actually two hinged pieces) without side seams (solder lines).

Re: Beautiful cup-18th century

Hi,
Tulip beaker on pedestal (Timbale tulipe sur piédouche).
JayT observation is correct;
The foot (pedestal) was so badly damaged it had to be replaced with a new one, being of smaller diameter the maker`s mark was partially obliterated when soldered.

Re: Coffee serving set 60-70, unknown maker

Hi,
I think it is the unicorn mark of Gebrüder Kühn - Schwäbisch Gmünd.They are known to have changed the form of the unicorn mark and this one is obviously related to Art Deco style of the set.
The first mark is crescent and crown.Most likely made for export.

Re: Match box marks, Auction house listed it as French

Hi, Amena is right about boar's head (small objects fineness 800, 1838 until 1984 Paris). I think there was a good reason for striking two identical marks,it has something to do with weight.I noticed that on jewelry (bracelets,chains).Similar practice in Austria-Hungary (multiple marks on chain link...

Re: Nuremberg, around 1750?, grapes?

I don't think its fake at all


Not a fake.And not even a fraudulent intention because it is clearly described by the auctioneer as ``um 1900``

Re: Nuremberg, around 1750?, grapes?

The same mark was used by Gebruder Dingeldein;``Augsburg`` acorn being very popular. I have a goblet with Nurenberg N and later saw exactly the same piece with Augsburg fantasy marks. Gebruder Dingeldein moved to America and continued the production. What is the object discussed here ? Do not get di...

Re: Is this an antique ... roach clip!?

Makes sense what SteveDWollongong said;lack of full set of marks indicates it was part of a bigger item.
And the form of the handle (flame) looks like something to be inserted into a container.
