Re: Inhereted Silverplate help

You are spot on with the idea that they may be later reproductions Trev. These are Walker & Hall entre dishes made in 1906.

Merry Christmas!

Re: Please help me identify Walker and Hall Hallmark M R 718

Am I seeing this correctly? Does it say "W&X" in the pennant?

Re: Marks on a spoon.

Thanks Alex. That is spot on. French silver is a great gap in my knowledge, but if we all know something about something, then someone will have the answer!

Marks on a spoon.

I hope someone can help me with these French marks. They are on a rather nice little parcel gilt spoon. The maker’s mark seem to be ‘EC’ or ‘EG’ with what looks like a bird between the letters. Thank you. Paul. http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/SForum/th_fs1.jpg http://i1264.photob...

Re: J6 on a goblet.

There seems to be some debate about the reason for the number representing the date of manufacture being before the TJ or after it. Being just a single numeral, it would seem logical that there would need to be a method of distinguishing years from different decades. TJ6 and 6TJ therefore would repr...

Thank you. I do know what the other mark is. I meant that I was going to look into the work of the Tallinn Jewelry Factory.

J6 on a goblet.

This is a nice little goblet with a Tallinn mark from the Soviet era. Can anyone identify the ‘J6’ mark? Thank you. Paul http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/SForum/th_EG1.jpg http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/SForum/th_538ea577-63bb-4c0a-b6c8-0ead85145672.jpg

Re: Dutch spoon?

Thank you gentlemen. Another mystery solved! I really don't know much about Hanau silver, but find the subject quite intriguing. Do you know of a good book about it?

Thanks again,

Dutch spoon?

I hope someone, possible Oel, can help me with this spoon. It appears to be of an early Dutch style, but I have no records of any marks which might help to identify it. It is 19.8cm in length and weighs 60g. Thanks. Paul. http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilver/Forum/th_IMG_4466.jpg http...

GR&Co?

This is an hourglass pattern table spoon. It is of a really good gauge silver, but the maker and origins are eluding me. The marks are ‘GR&Co’ or ‘GR&C’ with what looks like a journeyman’s mark or a tally mark. All suggestions welcome. Paul. http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/pahsilve...

Stg Silver.

This is a fork with a ‘jade’ handle. It is marked ‘STG SILVER’ and ?&Co. Over stamped with S.D I have looked through all my reference for an idea of its origins, without success. I originally thought it might be Australia. Would any have any ideas? Paul http://i1264.photobucket.com/albums/jj498/...

William Welch.

Here is a nice table spoon with an Exeter hallmark for 1807 and a maker’s mark W.W This is where the puzzle starts. There seem to be two maker’s called William Welch, both with an identical mark. The first William Welch was working in Plymouth Dock from 1760, with evidence that he was still trading ...
