Would like help with marks on Danish pie server

Postby touchstone » Sun Aug 09, 2015 2:35 pm

Hello-
I'm looking for any information on this pie serving piece (approx 10.25" long), I believe it is of Danish origin:

Here is a close up of the design work :

On the back of the handle, there are two marks:

One mark appears to be two towers, so I take that to mean that the pie server is silver plate?
It almost looks like there is some detail directly under the two towers, but I can't make it out:
Image

The other mark is unclear to me, so much so that I'm including 4 photos (of the one mark) to show it rotated in 4 directions, because I don't know what is up or down on this mark:

I did look through this site's page on silverplate pictorial marks (as well as the initial marks) at http://www.925-1000.com/silverplate__menu.html but I didn't find anything that appeared to match to me.

Am I correct to think it is Danish in origin, and that it is silverplate?

Any information that could be given on this piece would be appreciated!
Thank you.

Thank you! Now that I think "Absalom", I can see the mark as a person holding two things! I'll try to pursue this, thanks!

i tryed Google translate. The name is crosier - thats what Absalon is holding.

The marks are the 2 Towers for silverplate and the Absalon mark for the factory. Skefabrikken Absalon.

The pattern is a wery old patern Empire is the dansih name. Its been used since the late 17hundreds - wery much used in silverplate. But parallel in in solid silver for 250 years. And silverplate later.
