Estonian mark?

Can anyone help me with this mark? I think it is an is early Estonian mark, but my Estonian references are rather sparse. The spoon measures 8" long and weighing around 72 grams. Thank you. Paul. http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/forum3/th_bsp01.jpg http://i1264.photobucket.co...

Re: Silver plated spikes.

Definitely not corn on the cob holders. The spikes are too broad and the disks would render the impractical for this use. The cheese idea had been discussed, as it look like they are designed to be buried up to the hilt in something.

Silver plated spikes.

Does anyone have any idea what these are? They are silver plated of a high quality and measure about 3¼” in length. The ribbon and tie decorated ring is just the right size for a finger. The reeded disc at the hilt suggests that they are buried or inserted into something to that level, but the brea...

Anyone heard of this man?

Just a simple question. Has anyone any references to a silversmith called Edward Noddale or something similar. Working sometime before 1700, he made church plate amongst other things.

Vesta Case

This is a nice little vesta case which seems to be from the early 20th century. Where I would expect to see a Birmingham hall mark there is something puzzling. It seems to say N.C.R. C??? possibly ‘Co’ and on the other side something with four letters then ‘silver’. I have put it in the American sec...

Re: ‘V-E’ on a salt.

Hello Mike, Thanks for the suggestion.  That was a possibility I looked at, but what I couldn't get to show in the photo was that it is an oval shield and the curvature of the oval would not have sufficient space for the rest of a 'W'. I have looked at it from every angle and every way up but it st...

‘V-E’ on a salt.

This is a nice simple salt, hallmarked London 1779, but the maker is completely eluding me. It seems to be something like ‘V-E’, but there is nothing in Grimwade or Heal or anything else I can find. Any ideas anyone? Paul. http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/th_Salt3.jpg http://i1264...

Berlin sifter.

This is a sugar sifter from Berlin. There are pricked initials on the back ‘H & CH 1819' It has a script letter’ A’ and what I presume is maker’s mark of ‘AW’. Can anyone help me with the identity of the maker please? Paul. http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/4b57308c-4dc4-40ac-9...

Large Plate Cilp.

This is a silver plated plated plate clip made by Walker & Hall in 1910. It is larger than the usual fish bone clip. It is actually pictured on a side plate, so it it not as large as it might seem, but it is still the biggest one I have seen. Would anyone have any ideas for it purpose. Dipping s...

Thanks Miles. I thought you might know. I can account for one tea spoon, so I will keep a look out for the other 29,999.

Merry Christmas.
