Re: Basket ID

Hi,
Machine made mass produced die stamped and rolled silver with 18th century Ewald Bedewart mark and Tremolierstich.
Possibly the only genuine mark deliberately erased.
Everything is wrong here; forget it.

Re: Coffee spoon (~8g), hallmarks hardly visible

Hi, Letter A is a secondary mark for Vienna. It appears on finials, legs, handles etc, sometimes struck twice and sometimes with Diana`s head. It can be seen on bigger items as the only mark. Could not find any legislation in regard of it`s use. The style of your spoon is late 19th century. Compare ...

Re: German silver Jugensdstil Bowl - Help with marks

Hi, I have embedded your image. The maker (arrow 1) is Koch & Bergfeld, Bremen. See here: https://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_marks_a1884_5.html The mark arrow 2 is Austria-Hungary import mark used 1891-1901 (At least the form of the mark looks very much like it). Regards https://abload.de/img/germ...

Hi,
Most likely Thomas Dicks, London 1807. Leopard`s head crowned is missing, common practice on spoons at the time.

Re: Russian Vase with Dubious Marks

Hi,
Looks like a Bohemian Biedermeier beaker. The base (foot) probably damaged and mounted to silver with obviously faked and impossible 18th century Moscow mark. A marriage of several parts.

Re: Silver enamel box

Hi,
Although it bears Imperial Russian marks (84 zolotnik fineness) I think it is not a genuine Imperial Russian filigree.
Either ``Russified`` with faked marks to make it more lucrative, or more likely newly made (e.g.in India).

Re: Help w/ French Bracelet maker's mark

Hi, Maker`s mark is too small to identify. If you could tell us the initials. The crab marks guarantee a minimum fineness of 800; the fineness can be anywhere between 800 and 950. The silver standard for smalls is not precisely controlled because those objects are small and light. In other words, it...

Re: help with maker hallmark on a wrist watch

Common convention mark (the scale) has been used since 1972.
B&B is not maker`s mark but sponsor`s mark registered with the assay office. The watch was made elsewhere and imported to Birmingham.

Definitively the latter; meaning the sponsor mark belongs to Brooks And Bentley

Re: help with maker hallmark on a wrist watch

Hi,
The sponsor`s mark (importer) appears to be Braybrook + Britten, common international fineness mark (the scales) and delta for Birmingham assay office import mark.

Re: Silversmith ID-snuff box

Dear Qrt.S, There was an info by Trev in regard of London leopard`s head with distorted facial expression; the engraver was struggling with failing eyesight and was replaced. I think it also worth noting, is the huge amount of punches that were supplied to the LAO by the engraver, in 1820 John Smith...
