Re: Help ID Unknown Maker

the left mark 12 L means 12 Lot = 750/1000 silver. The middle mark is the town mark of Magdeburg. Perhaps our member Theoderich knows the right mark = maker.

Russian bowl with handle 1857

A few days ago I found this nice dish which has Russian marks (diameter 12cm, height 5cm, with handle 13cm, weight 300 g). I recognize the town mark of Moscow, but who is the maker and the assayer. Regards silverfan https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg

Re: Spoon Hallmark Help

I think, the sign (a square with a point in the middle) behind the crown comes from Hamburg (probably there is a correlation to navigation). BTW this square is also the sign of Hamburger Sportverein. M. Steisinger was silversmith or jeweller in Hamburg. It is not clear if he is the maker or only the...

Re: Cigarette case. Marked with "FB".. London hallmark?

Maker's mark FB could stand for Franz Bibus, Mährisch-Trübau. Look if within the Diana mark there is A2 for the Assay Office Mährisch-Trübau.

Re: Help with D7 mark. Possible Austro Hungarian?

It is the so-called Radlpunze from Austro-Hungary. D7 or D2 stands for the assay office. I think member huszas will tell you more.

Re: Whats maker could it be?

the mark of Otto Schneider, Berlin is an S. I suppose the mark behind the 800 to be the eagle of Bruckmann, Heilbronn. Perhaps you see more when you clean this mark with an old tooth brush.

Re: Gustav Memmert. Berlin 1890-1930.

Hi Oel,
your photo is the clear example that the M behind fineness does not mean Memmert, because in front of the 800 you see the eagle, the maker's mark of Bruckmann, Heilbronn.
