Re: cs mark what is it?

Hello, I agree with Orthogonal, your photo shows makers marks that are likely to be those of “John George Graves” the Sheffield industrialist. The mark you have posted, is as illustrated on 927-1000’s silver plate reference section and also shown on the “silvercollection.it” web site. The “CS” as yo...

Re: Danish Silverplate Marks for the website

Hello I found some more Danish silver plate spoons and currently I don’t think there is an image of the these marks on the thread for comparison. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/ovnSglqUIf5f6F5QgG6g9gC5Rrb7La2utIQBRz-SnDU=w463-h150-p-no If these were British electroplate spoons the “N.S” would be ...

“AMORPHOUS” FIGURAL DANISH SILVER PLATE MARK

Hello I just bought another spoon. Stylistically it resembled an English turn of the 19th century small tea or coffee spoon. It was not however English as it carried the Danish 2 tower silver plate mark. Hopefully pictured below are the markings. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/MApfz2D_xrC9gy249fu...

Hello I have just been looking in the bottom of my spoon box at the “need more information” corner. I picked out a small spoon whose hallmarks looked similar to something I had learnt and read about recently from “925-1000”. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-dJivlWfZq-I/UxJnHLfme4I/AAAAAAAAAOA/RuTA...

Re: Arabic numeral 833 silver mark. Brazil again?

Thank you Trev I am sceptical, very sceptical. There are similarities but I have uploaded a bigger version of the mark at the rear of the coffee bean finial. I do not recognise the last "3" as the "S" in you photo. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/zZ0_hUJ1CaznKaJbn_3akzH98F4n43s...

M.G.C&Son mark. McGlashan ?

Hello, thought I would try another of my silver plate queries. This possible makers mark is on a standard type dessert spoon. I believe the spoon is silver plated from wear marks on the finial. I have not found an obvious UK maker though it maybe that the “mark” is for a retailer. https://lh4.google...

The upside is however that I seem to own an over 200year old Exeter spoon. From my understanding of Miles Harrison’s Exeter cartouche article, this spoon cannot have been a...
