Mark on reverse intaglios silver & ? amber

Postby coreya » Thu Jun 18, 2020 4:12 pm

My daughters friend sent me these pictures of a pendant and ring, trying to figure out the mark. She was told they were German and the material thats engraved is amber.? Dont have it in hand so any help or info would be appreciated. I have searched numerous marks with no results and figured I would turn to the experts! both have the same marking 925 etc.

Thanks for the info, not 100% sure its the same but does give a place to start. I apologize for posting on this thread as its not for jewelery but had a brain freeze. Thanks again for the mass of knowledge here!

That doesn't look like a Benaki Museum mark to me. Don't know the mark, but started seeing these reverse-carved/intaglio amber pieces coming out of Poland around 20 years ago, and they're still produced there - they were also sold through numerous retailers here in the US (and I'm sure other countries as well), used to see loose carvings sold by themselves too...

Hi,
Cheryl is right;modern Baltic (Polish) amber carved with high velocity dental instruments.
