German rococo silver snuff box maker's mark IP

Hello Theoderich an Patrick Thank you very much. The maker's mark is IP. For me it looks more like a rearing horse. However I do not have Marc Rosenberg volume III to check out Stuttgart. The maker's mark IP and city mark are on this picture: http://d.imagehost.org/view/0421/German_silver_snuff_box_...

German rococo silver snuff box maker's mark IP

Could it be a rearing horse instead of a running horse? Or Schwäbisch Gmünd used from 1720-1788 see Marc Rosenberg volume II # 2178 and # 2179. Appreciate an expert opinion. Thanks.

Regards

Gold snuff box / tabatiere and the hallmarks

After consulting a paid 'expert on hallmarks' I can say we are looking at 'pseudo marks'. I never realized the 'pseudo marks' were used on gold items as well. My question could someone determine if the box is made by a Hanau or other German gold/silver smith. I checked the 925-1000 Hanau information...

Gold snuff box / tabatiere and its hallmarks

Hello Jakjo, Thank you very much for your prompt and accurate reply. I do agree and most of us were deceived by de letter “V” because the book “Gold stempel aus aller Welt” by Jan Divis points us to Valdemarsvik. The engine turning technique is an old technique. In the 1700’s it was adopted for meta...

Re: German unknown maker's mark of IP

Thanks I think, according to Tardy page 47; this city mark of Stuttgart has been used between 1700/60. The box is a good example of rococo style chased work and bright cut engraving.
I do hope we can find the name of the silversmith with the maker’s mark IP

Thanks all of you, under the wrappings of the internal pieces is air, hollow.
The wrappings are stiff and hard, like sand paper and reach to the bottom of the etui. The internal piece without the silver tip has traces of sealing wax.

Regards,
