it is Gebrüder Deyhle, Schwäbisch Gmünd or E.L. Vietor, Darmstadt, who had a very similar mark. See German Maker's Marks after 1886 in this forum.

Re: identification of spoon

Werner is the name of the jeweller in Berlin, who sold the item. The spoon was made by Wilkens founded 1810 in Bremen/Germany after 1888. The initial with the crowned R shows that a former owner was a baron. http://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_marks_a1884_6.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return f...

Re: Puifourcat flatware

I think the pattern is called Puiforcat Empire Cygne. See David Allan "French Silver Cutlery of the XIXth Century" page 76. Or ask puiforcat.com for a mail address to be able to send a photo for confirmation. Puiforcat, 48, avenue Gabriel, F-75008 Paris, Phone 0033-1-45631010 (belongs to H...

The spoon has the Model No. 12300 and was designed by Prof. Hübner in about 1903. The mark "lion's head" was abandonned when the Mansfeld group took over Franz Bahner in 1917 and replaced by "M crossed hammers S". The Mark "F crossed hammers B" was only used for plated...

I doubt that it is Koch & Bergfeld, because he firm allways puts the mark (Fußschale) in front of the purity and then halfmoon and crown (sometimes halfmoon and crown are lacking).

Hi Juke, the assay master's initials are extremely tiny, but with a 20x magnifying-glass I read AB (in capital letters, cyrillic or latin?). Following the kokoshnik mark list it could be Alexander Virjohovsky from Kostroma. At the moment I have no possibility to take a photo. Do you know anything ab...

student wrote " I think it to be plate ...." It is plate (830/1000)! In England I was told, that the word comes from the Spanish plata and doesn't mean plated but solid silver. It is often used in the wrong way.

I suppose the original pattern was created by Koch & Bergfeld, Bremen in ca. 1890. It was made in Russia too. The still existing company Koch & Bergfeld founded 1829 always produces that pattern (called Sophie) under No. 20100 and you can find it under http://www.kochberg.de" onclick="window...
