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...

Duplicated Austrian import marks

Hello I came recently across a souvenir spoon made by the Germany based “Antiko” silver/silver plating concern.

Hello, I don't know where to query problems like this. There seem to have been some some "software" changes on the forum. My posts that contain "quote marks" and "apostrophes" appear now to have "computer code" replacing those grammatical marks. Am I imagining...

Provincial Scottish spoon “EW” and “beetle” marks Perth?

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

Dates for the Portugal 833 silver standard?

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...

I didn’t recognise the image as a dahlia, in fact I had to look very carefully to decide that the lettering was “DS” and not “SO”. Incidentally I too like fish ...

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...
