Beehive maker’s mark? Rudge Retailer?

Hello, shown below is a composite photo of a well marked fiddle pattern teaspoon I just bought. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/910/40060887360_1c8a9bb45d_b.jpg “Our” 925-1000 web site carries no reference in the “silverplate marks” section to a “beehive” figural mark or to any “S.Bros” makers.

Re: Newcastle Duty Mark Mystery

Hello, I must admit to you Phil I was very pleased to read your comment about the “spurious” 1804-20 duty marks. After looking at a large number of Newcastle marks over the past week, I had concluded the “Jackson’s” illustrations of the lobed duty mark may not have been correct. I suppose confirming...

Re: Newcastle Duty Mark Mystery

Hello, I am correcting myself. I just looked again at http://www.silvermakersmarks and now see that Newcastle seemed to change their duty mark from the “cusped” mark to a normal type head in the roundel from 1800. Does that mean that there are only up to 4 years when that “cusped” mark could be foun...

Re: Newcastle Duty Mark Mystery

Hello and happy New Year 10 years on.

NG silver mark. Not Chinese Export mark?

Hello sometime ago, last summer in fact I was an under bidder for an on-line spoon. I kept a photo of its marks as I did not recognise them at all. I felt there was a pseudo British duty mark and strange mark that had features a bit like the 90 mark you seen on some Chinese Export silver. Into my Co...

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?

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...

A photo of the 3 spoons in question is below. http://www.925-1000.com/td/f/Canada/Veith-1.jpg A quick...

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: 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...

The association of the middle 2 marks do suggest one maker...
