Re: Loth Standard Spoon. Cloaked man finial.

Hello, thank you Aguest for your replies. It is sad that you were unable to recover any photos of the marks that you feel are the same as the one on my spoon. Your recollection that a Simon Groth assay master’s mark (1863-1904) was also associated with that mark on one of your items would certainly ...

Loth Standard Spoon. Cloaked man finial.

Hello, I recently saw and bought on line a small apostle style spoon. It had 2 marks struck to the rear of the bowl, 1 of which I thought was the “loth” standard mark that I associated with 19th century Germany although the spoon was suggested to be Norwegian. This spoon was not in my comfort zone s...

Re: Joseph G. Jodah - Ontario - Canada

Hello Dognose, another bus has finally come. I’ve actually been waiting for it for over 3 years. I recorded a photo of these unidentified spoon marks below from the inter net in May 2014. http://www.925-1000.com/td/f/Canada/Jodah-1.jpg I thought it likely to be Canadian Provincial but on first resea...

Re: Need Help With Identification- Salt Spoon A1 well worn

Hello I managed to get a crisper image of the marks but I believe they are unhappily not maker's marks. They appear to me as written in the old English Gothic style of lettering and say EPNS but now seeing Phil's picture it does appear to be EPGS. The Gothic script is often used on 19th and early 20...

Re: Silver spoon marks

Hello Steve, welcome and thank you for some nice interesting marks to start off with. I think you will get quite a few opinions as to the manufacturer of your Mum's spoon.There are no letters to help but the pictorial marks may be traceable. The association of the middle 2 marks do suggest one maker...

Re: Mystery marks ... sterling or plate???

Hello JoanW, I noted your response to AG2012’s comments. I think you will need to learn a little new vocabulary. I offer you first “silver standard guarantee mark”. Most nations have their own and often it is pictorial or a combined pictorial numerical mark as some nations have more than one silver ...

Hello Lucy, I just came across your post. I just looked at your hallmark photos and wondered if the first mark was not in fact a 4, but was an A or even a castle shaped like a pyramid?. Castles are a common town/city marks in German silver. Silver centers around Hamburg used a castle with a door in ...

Poland 20th Century (inter wars period) spoon with W.H mark.

Hello, I just bought a spoon that had bowl struck marks that I could not positively identify. The marks needed cleaning but I thought I could see one mark with a women’s head and a curvaceous number 3. I hoped it was a silver spoon as a women’s head is always promising in my view. A picture of the s...

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.

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”.
