Re: Need help with AJD maker's mark

Hello I hope this might be another image for this post. It was from an online spoon. It was obviously made by the Driesen family of silversmiths. https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg My identification is the “early” Anthonie and Jacobus Johannes but I think t...

Re: Help ID mystery mark L&F

Hello, nothing very solid in the way of help, but if the pictorial part of the mark is a lighthouse could "Faro" be part of the name. I see there is an Italian company Faro Linea. I know for some of the Southern European countries "Faro" is lighthouse. I see from a post by Dognos...

Re: silver candlesticks

Hello, I noticed some photos in this post of silver plate marks belonging to “Jenkins and Timm” and I have a couple of others to add. I did a bit of research on small plated spoon with the marks shown below. x The “A” no doubt is the usual story of a company just letting a buyer know how good the co...

Re: london made spoons, date identification

Hello I think we may require a referee for the maker. Although these are Newcastle spoons and very likely assayed 1805 as Steve says, I believe the maker’s mark cartouche is an ovaloid and not an oblong (as Kelty's is) and the maker is most likely “Ann Robertson” the widow of John Robertson and her ...

Re: Serving spoon marked with Maltese Cross 1877 cursive R 910

Hello, just noted this image on line. Seems very similar to the marks discussed in this topic. I know we are in the silverplate section but is that the definitive answer?

Re: Newcastle Duty Mark Mystery

Hello, I must admit to you Phil I was very pleased to read your comment about the “spurious” 1804-20 duty marks. After looking at a large number of Newcastle marks over the past week, I had concluded the “Jackson’s” illustrations of the lobed duty mark may not have been correct. I suppose confirming...

Re: Newcastle Duty Mark Mystery

Hello, I am correcting myself. I just looked again at http://www.silvermakersmarks and now see that Newcastle seemed to change their duty mark from the “cusped” mark to a normal type head in the roundel from 1800. Does that mean that there are only up to 4 years when that “cusped” mark could be foun...

NG silver mark. Not Chinese Export mark?

Hello sometime ago, last summer in fact I was an under bidder for an on-line spoon. I kept a photo of its marks as I did not recognise them at all. I felt there was a pseudo British duty mark and strange mark that had features a bit like the 90 mark you seen on some Chinese Export silver. Into my Co...

Re: Silver fork marked AT AT?

Hello, just noticed this when looking for something else. What struck me about the close up maker's marks is that could there be evidence for over-punching of the "A" letter? A relative changing the mark first name letter or a similar surnamed retailer?

CK silversmith. Netherlands possibly?

Hello I recently viewed a mixed silver lot at a local auction and noted it contained an interesting looking spoon. I could see an obvious “CK” maker mark plus 2 other obscure marks, one of which was possibly a curvaceous “Y” date letter. My first thought was that the marks belonged to an 1800 or ear...

A photo of the 3 spoons in question is below. http://www.925-1000.com/td/f/Canada/Veith-1.jpg A quick...
