Re: German Silver Tray, marked with maker's mark JB

I wanted to say that - though I know a lot of companies - I never saw this mark and that a tray is not the easiest product for a silversmith. From a skilled silversmith one would have expected to see more pieces.

Re: could this mark be german

Rückert was a silver company in Mainz and the mark on the right could be the wheel, town mark of Mainz. The company was taken over by Gebr. Reiner, Krumbach around 1930.

Re: German Silver Tray, marked with maker's mark JB

In my register of german maker's marks there is only one JB without dots which is attributed to J. Benz, Pforzheim. I am not sure if this is right, because I do not know this company especially not as a maker of a tray.

Re: Dutch salt

Hi amena,
I am not sure, but I do not think it is a eye bath, because all eye baths I have seen have an oval or round shape. Here there is a rectanguler shape, perhaps the glass liner has been lost.

Re: Dutch salt

Hi Peter,
Thank you very much. The salt is older than I thought. When using a magnifying glass I discovered on a normally impossible position and that is on the lower edge the very tiny year letter W for 1831 (see first photo).

Dutch salt

This little salt is marked with lion 2, Minerva in a corner of the bottom (I could not recognize the letter on the head) and a maker's mark which I could not identify. Who is the maker?

Re: Moscow 1864 spoon with niello reverse

Hi AG2012,
I examined my spoon under a magnifying glass and I recognized a bust of a man on the top of the column neither an angel nor a double headed eagle.

Re: Moscow 1864 spoon with niello reverse

Hi AG2012, thanks for your quick answer. On the top of the Alexander column there is an angel with a cross and the column is situated in front of the winter Palace. On my spoon is no angel with a cross and the buildings do not look like the winter Palace. So I suppose it to be a place in Moscow. Do ...

Moscow 1864 spoon with niello reverse

This rather heavy spoon (77 g, 18cm) with round bowl is, I think, made by Ivan Egorov (PL 2487) and assayed by Viktor Savinski (PL 2111). I would like that someone could confirm this and could tell me what is shown on the reverse of the bowl. Regards silverfan https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg ...

Re: Polish Makers Mark Help Please

I think it is the mark of Hefra, a merger of Henneberg and Fraget, producing plated articles.

Re: Maker and style of teapot?

@silverK
Important for your question is - I think - Koch & Bergfeld and 1890. The material of the insulators is completely unimportant, because that changed in the course of time and has no relevance for the style.

Re: Please help identify years.

Tardy says on page 188 concerning the lady's face: "Although of no value as a guarantee, this mark is found fifty years later on some Paris products". So the two other marks indicate the right time.

I just made the x-ray test. Result: 94% silver. So the prongs are sterling. In my first post I wrote that the inscription on the blades would read "Preis T & Co". Right is: PREIST & Co. I found this company in the Internet but not the foundation date. I believe the blades not to be...
