Re: Possible 19th Century Belgian fork with A2 mark & H maker’s mark

Hello thank you Dendriet for your speedy reply. I see you have helped Dognose with the same maker in 2015. I have referenced that post below. http://www.925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12636&p=121896&hilit=belgium#p28178 Am I now correct in understanding Huben is the family name o...

Possible 19th Century Belgian fork with A2 mark & H maker’s mark

Hello I think I may have that picture that everybody wants to see and it is shown later. I just bought a fork from the inter net because I believed it was not as advertised but could be early. The on line photos did not tell me where the fork came from but its figural and lettered maker’s mark put t...

Re: Jasper Kelly?? Another Maker not 100% sure of

Hello, just another spoon and another IK mark for perusal. http://www.925-1000.com/td/f/Scotland/Keith-John-example-2.jpg From my very limited knowledge of Scottish spoons I believe this spoon could well be an example of a toddy spoon. Although this spoon lacks any extra Scottish Provincial marks I ...

Re: French maker JM

Hello I’ve just bought a small souvenir spoon and wondered if I could join the French JM maker discussion? I bought my spoon on line with the feeling its maker’s mark was the JM with the “beehive “ in between the 2 letters belonging to the Paris silversmith “Joseph Mondinelli”. http://www.925-1000.c...

Silver "Fabrik" REU

Hello, a couple of years ago a German souvenir spoon I acquired caused me to put the word “REU” into our forum’s search facility. The only reference generated was a French address with a “typo”. A quick inter net check made me no wiser though there were numerous on line sale listings, more particula...

Re: Spoon with Sword and possible TGD or TCD maker's marks

Thank you again Peter. I now can put a label on another spoon and more importantly an unrecorded maker’s mark is “out there” on the web with a likely owner. Hopefully others can find it, discuss it and confirm it. This search has also taught me that images are frequently used in Dutch maker’s marks ...

Re: Spoon with Sword and possible TGD or TCD maker's marks

Hello, thank you Peter for the quick reply. A hammer could be the upper character but with a hand lens the last letter does not look like a “B”. That said we all know the frustration caused by 100 years of spoon use that leaves very little of the marks to research at all. I have uploaded 2 more phot...

Spoon with Sword and possible TGD or TCD maker's marks

Hello I saw a spoon on line and could not identify the marks. I could see the “Dutch dagger” but the maker’s mark was obscured. I now own the spoon but I am not very much wiser about the identification of the spoon. I know from the “Our” web site and Forum that the “sword” mark started in 1804 and t...

Groth and Kolling marked Danish silver spoon

Hello, I just got round to finally catalogue a Danish silver spoon I bought some time ago. Easy I thought, just go to the 925-1000 wed site and look it up. 3 towers mark and smudged date mark. Possibly 1881? Small entwined letter mark for the assay master and written makers mark. All so easy with so...

Hello I have recently bought this teaspoon just to have an example of a Provincial Scottish spoon in my collection. I think it has not well-known marks though. An inter net reference suggested that “EW” may be the mark of the silversmith “Ewan Wilson” who worked in Perth. A photo is below. https://l...

Re: Dates for the Portugal 833 silver standard?

Thank you Oel for so quick a reply and this extra huge database. I hope it will be easily found for other silver “searchers”. There is a huge amount of information all over the forum and the web site but is often hard to know where to look for that little bit you really want.
Thanks again

Hello, I have just been doing a bit of research on a Portugal “guild” 833 mark using the world silver marks section. I just need a bit of guidance as it shows my 833 mark being used from 1938 but that the “present Portugal assay marks” do not use 833 parts silver. When in fact did “present” start an...
