Re: British Retailers mark Walsall

Hello again I had a look on line for some more details on some of Dognose’s pictures. There seems to be information to be found on the “Taylor” of “Rochdale” silversmith. With a leap of faith the photo below could be that of the retailer’s shop. https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg The date of thi...

Re: Silver fork marked AT AT?

Hello, just noticed this when looking for something else. What struck me about the close up maker's marks is that could there be evidence for over-punching of the "A" letter? A relative changing the mark first name letter or a similar surnamed retailer?

Re: CK silversmith. Netherlands possibly?

Thanks Peter. I have just got back to my own WiFi system to be able to respond. A 200 plus year old Dutch coffee spoon is certainly a special in my collection.

CK silversmith. Netherlands possibly?

Hello I recently viewed a mixed silver lot at a local auction and noted it contained an interesting looking spoon. I could see an obvious “CK” maker mark plus 2 other obscure marks, one of which was possibly a curvaceous “Y” date letter. My first thought was that the marks belonged to an 1800 or ear...

WV maker mark with pseudo British hallmarks

Hello, I recently bought 3 WV maker mark spoons in a mixed lot. The 3 WV also had some pseudo British hallmarks on and came with the possibility of them being by the Canadian silversmith W. Venning. A photo of the 3 spoons in question is below. http://www.925-1000.com/td/f/Canada/Veith-1.jpg A quick...

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

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...

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...

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?.

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.
