Hi, There never has been a vessel or ocean liner called the Rotterdamsche Lloyd . It is a name of a shipping company. The change some one boarded the ocean liner called Rotterdamse Lloyd are pretty small. Your ‘hotel silver’ dish does not carry the name of a ship, only the name of an ordinary shippi...

Re: Unknown marks on a silver item

Hello Dinio, You were right in saying I did not provide all clues, however I did it on purpose, to draw only attention towards the three marks and not the whole item, which makes most of us jump to a conclusion. I like to apologies if I have misused your time. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x60...

Re: Help me please to read the marks.

Hi,

Yes the mark has been registered under the name of W. Visser and his workshop Zandvoortse Edelmetaal Gieterij, which had shops in the city of Zandvoort and in de city of Haarlem. Zandvoort is pretty close to Haarlem.

Forgot to add: the sword mark assured a minimum silver standard of 833, and was also used as an accompaniment to larger item marks on pieces that had more than three components or appendages. Such additions might be in the form of a bail, links, or hinged appendages. If a large sized item was compri...
