"Bruce" has surfaced again!

There is an old, unanswered thread on a souvenir spoon marked Bruce Sterling. A listing on eBay for a demi spoon from the Park Central Hotel in New York appears to carry a mark "Bruce Silver". What is known is that Albert Pick supplied early china (1927) and an additional sample plate from...

Re: R. Wallace - Hudson Pattern

Also produced carrying the "Wallco sectional A1+" mark, circa late 1920's-1930's. [Taken from commercial spoon sample for "Park Central" (hotel in mid Manhattan NY NY).]

Re: help with marking on candle holders

Not much to go on with what visibly remains of that picto-mark on the left, but maybe compare it to one of the Indian head profiles in the International Silver lineage (?): https://www.925-1000.com/americansilver__Icon.html

Re: W. Keyes? Silver Spoon ID

One thing that is seen is the comparatively large space between the last two letters. It would seem odd in a maker mark to have it compounded beyond a simple singular name, and Keyes is a known name, but possibly "W. KEYE S."-??

Re: W. Keyes? Silver Spoon ID

Both William and Walter got zip. I doubt this will help, but Keyes & Gager show up as retailers (Buffalo c. 1854) on coin spoons. Name at bottom of ad on page 37 does not match W. Keyes, but might turn out to be related. [Neither W. Keyes, nor Gager, came up in silver or watches. Jewelers seems ...

Re: Silver & Glass Salt & Pepper Set Taxco

These won't be great images, but trust me that this mark loupes as as close to "CH" as possible. So now we also have typical overlay barware (shots, cordials, etc.) for this Taxco mark, not unlike the ones that have turned up for the Federal District (D.F.) on occasion. Hopefully additiona...

Re: Table Chandler

May be nothing as they would be very small, but examine the area below the chin as there appears to be some letters in that space. Possibly C's and a P when enlarged.

Re: Table Chandler

Just to get it started, your object lacks a full set of marks to be able to call it "hallmarked". One possibility is a pseudo sovreign head mark used outside of British controls. Using the search box, there are many references on pseudo head..I don't want to point to any particular origin,...

Re: Maltese silver casting bottle/flask

Oddball crazy but Part 2 of Malta assay history (at end) brings Augsburg pyr mark into (select) objects imported to Malta and locally marked or re-marked. Is this circled pips a possible version of one such mark (?): https://andredelicata.wordpress.com

Re: Help Identifying Marks on Danish Silver Tea Caddy

Can we clear up one thing here...All of the "F.F. encircled with dots" marks that are showing up seem to have a letter style of the "F" which differs from the one shown here in the Danish Assay section. Here is an information trail on father and son over two linked threads noting...
