Re: Multi-marked (MG, WB & BS2) apostle spoon. Old continent

Hello and thank you Oel for such a prompt reply to my query. I was undecided as to the silversmith type mark being “BS2” or “RS2” but at that time and still now I have not been able to make the Dutch silversmith web site work for me. I am listing a larger image of the marks. https://lh4.googleuserco...

Thank you Cheryl, Bahner and Trev for your particularly prompt and expansive replies. It seems I will have tell my friend he was correct in his assertion that Antiko 800 represents a grade of silver and not a form of silver plate. Am I the only person that did not know that was true?

20th Century Sheffield date letters “W/w” and others

Hello again. I cast my net for silver spoons at an auction recently, but I failed, for the lots I wanted. To avoid total disappointment I bid on and won some relatively mundane tea type spoons. I did think they were mundane until I came to identify the marks. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/CxUyG8...

Thank you again Scotrab for the in depth information on that spoon. I like spoons that tell you someting, even an old worn silver tea spoon telling you how many times it has been used over its life. I wish I had known 2 years ago what I know now about captain's spoons because I think it would still ...

Re: JB sole mark on mustard spoon

Thanks for replying Mike. Particularly in suggesting my thinking could be correct rgarding the maker. Perhaps you have got to think you will not always find all the marks you expect on some silver items , even one only around 100 years old.

Hello. I would like to know if any one could give me speculations regarding my “J.B” marked possible small mustard spoon. The spoon is about 6 centimetres long and a composite picture should be below. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-RFOnvleId1s/UYQ1jH7VqNI/AAAAAAAAAHI/jeEfbdaQx1M/w688-h306-p-o/Mi...

Re: Help to ID Danish makers mark please ....

Took some photos of my spoon. Ignored the Copenhagan mark as it was not next to the other marks. I think the stylised intertwined mark may be like on your spoon. I think this is the mark for “W. & S. Sorensen Horsens”. https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-oi67PvM79ns/UXhSCx0xSrI/AAAAAAAAAG0/03eBK5...

Re: Double HD mark on German/Prussian Captains spoon.

Thank you Scotrab and Theoderich for the in depth comments and photos relating to my Captain’s spoon. I am very pleased that I was correct in some of my thoughts. I still wonder why this particular spoon had been double marked with Carl Heinrich Dengel’s “HD” mark. Is this common?
Thanks

Hello Thank you Dognose for your reply and comments particularly about the manufacture of plate spoons. It is difficult however to realise that there often seems more knowledge about 18th century silversmiths than 19th and 20th century silverplaters. I have, probably like other collectors, other mar...

Hello this is my first posting though I’ve made good use of silver 925-1000 before. Hopefully, uploaded, is a set of marks that are on an electroplated fiddle pattern teaspoon that I am only able to guess at a maker for. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/--ZCr6YApmjc/UTjr-8tnxvI/AAAAAAAAADw/S52uAYbj...
