Re: DUTCH SILVER PLATE MARKS “P”, FIGURAL, “R”

Hello, I am not answering my own post but I found these extra images on that well known internet auction site. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-cU8TKn9JozU/Uyd6vA6We4I/AAAAAAAAAOk/1q6Os9BZCjI/w690-h296-no/PR+head+spn+Rozendaal+Kasteel.jpg The associated information described the animal’s head as t...

GH&Co Possible Gustav Hellstrom mark

Hello I recently came across a souvenier type spoon and it is pictured below together with its markings. https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-R8Vgt8FmbsE/Ux5N2-1mPvI/AAAAAAAAAOQ/RpfkRK7VY0A/w563-h416-no/Norwegian+spn.jpg The 830 mark on the rear of the stem suggested Scandinavian manufacture to me.

Re: Richard Ferris Tongs?

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: Salt Spoon with Fleur-de-Lis mark

Hello, a bit of research and a hunch has brought me to this notice board and chasing the fleur de lis has got me to this post. You know what they say if you wait long enough at a bus stop then 2 buses will always come along together. Well is this the first bus? https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/tXPA...

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...

Re: “J.L” MAKER AND FOLIATED DUTY MARK

Thank you Trev for your rapid and value added answer. I am disappointed I was wrong again. Perhaps I should go back to fishing. 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...

“J.L” MAKER AND FOLIATED DUTY MARK

Hello I was recently looking at my spoons and this led to me rechecking one of my “contentious” teaspoons. It challenged me to review its limited hallmarks. The photo of the marks on the teaspoon is hopefully shown below. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-IIQtRhi3Zd8/UtA_9VysayI/AAAAAAAAAMQ/p9AkdEk...

DUTCH SILVER PLATE MARKS “P”, FIGURAL, “R”

Hello very recently I got at auction a bunch of souvenir spoons. Most were routine silver plated examples but 2 spoons stimulated a bit of extra interest for me.

World War II and silversmithing in the UK

Hello. I just found in an auction mixed lot, what appeared to be a boxed set of 6 silver coffee spoons. That was until I had a careful look at the hallmarks. The spoons were made by “Atkin Brothers” of Sheffield but there are different date letters. Hopefully the photos are below. https://lh4.google...

Thank you for your comments and extra info Trev. Thank you for agreeing with me this time. It would be nice if there were some other evidence to go on. I had hoped the registered type number on the spoon might be that. Is there anything other than date researchable with the number? Thanks again for ...

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.
