Re: Is this spoon silver?

The spoon looks German. Beginning 19th century. 12 Lot = 750/1000 silver. The maker's mark will be known by Theo.

Re: Cigarette case maybe Austrian

Yes, I think it is Austria. 2 means 900/1000 silver and A means Vienna, but I don't know the maker.

Re: please help to identify a mark

At my first glimpse I thought it is Fritz Scheuerle, but his mark has no frame. Therefore I think maker is Friedrich Steinwachs, Leipzig, though items from him are very rare. His mark is the only one with an oval frame I found in my records.

Not Bruckmann ?

Some weeks ago I posted this pattern under German Silver because I was sure that I had identified the Bruckmann eagle. Admin transfered the post to Flatware Pattern Identification but up to now no answer. That's why I now doubt that it is a Bruckmann production. Does anybody know this pattern? Regar...

Re: Bruckmann 240 Iris

Hi Joerg, Oyster fork was also my first idea. I looked into Sänger (I have only a photocopy too) and became unsure. I had never heard about an oyster spoon. Therefore I made the post here. Oel said it is used for cucumbers, that lead me to the idea: perhaps for mixed pickles too. I am open for bette...

Bruckmann coffee spoon

Hi all, I don't succeed in finding this Bruckmann pattern in any file. The spoon is clearly marked with halfmoon crown 800 and the Bruckmann-Eagle, so that there is no doubt that it is produced by that company in Heilbronn. Does anybody know the pattern name or number?

Re: Bruckmann 240 Iris

Hi Peter,
thanks for your quick answer. I had thought about oyster fork and spoon or little salad fork and spoon. For little cucumbers (gherkins) or mixed pickles is a good idea.

Bruckmann 240 Iris

Hi all, this Art Nouveau pattern - in Germany very sought after - is called Iris and was designed for the world Exhibition 1900 in Paris. I think it is the flatware pattern with the most different pieces ever produced in Germany. Does anybody know for what purpose the little spoon (14,6 cm) and the ...
