Unidentified German Makers' Marks

Postby admin » Mon Nov 05, 2007 2:52 pm

Dear Members,
The section of "Hallmarks on German Silver after 1886" on our main website was recently updated with mark additions. Included are a number of unidentified makers' marks and the "unidentifieds" have grown to the point were they warrant their own page.
Rather than creating individual posts asking about them, here is a link to the entire page.
German Mystery Marks
Any help in solving these mysteries would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Tom

Unidentified German Marks

Postby silverfan » Sat Nov 17, 2007 5:22 am

Hello Tom,
The fifth mark on the left side "EH" is Emil Hermann, Waldstetten already listed in German Silver after 1886. Mark used since ca. 1950 as told me the owner.

Unidentified mark Emil Hermann

Postby silverfan » Sat Nov 17, 2007 10:30 am

Hello Tom,
I forgot to mention, that the "EH" mark since about 1950 is used for heavy silver articles like hollow ware etc. Other articles still get the old mark.
Regards Dirk

German Hallmarks after 1886 has just been updated. Ten new marks including 4 additions to Unidentified German Marks.
Of special interest (to me, anyway) is the Herweg mark. I've come across it on 3 different pieces, all handmade with hammered finish and having a somewhat Bauhaus inspired look.
If anyone can identify any of these marks, please let us know.

Thanks, Tom

ps. Dirk, thanks, your info on Hermann was added a couple of updates back.

Hello,
There is a new addition to Unidentified German Marks. The last mark on the page, the maker's stamp uses the three petal flower used in the old Hanover town mark.
If anyone can identify it, or any of the other mystery marks, please let us know.

Thanks, Tom

Thanks, glad to know this. Can you provide any other information about Weiss? Specialties - jewelry, small items, table silver? It would also be great to know a reference for the identification.

Many thanks,
Tom

Unidentified German Silver Mark «JP in sun»

Postby silverport » Tue Aug 11, 2009 1:40 am

Hello «admin» Tom

I’ve already identified and in between on 1st and 7th of July 2009 informed you on this now identified German Mark «JP in sun». But until yet isn't changed from «Unidentified» to range of known German maker's mark.

This mark was mark of Josef Pauser, Schwäbisch Gmünd. Until mid 1980's in production by his son Emil Pauser. They produced a lot of different little things, e.g. stick handles and so on. In mid 1980's the whole was identified to be a very important Technical Monument - because there have started 150 years ago the Silver Industry of Schwäbisch Gmünd town area.

Maker’s mark «JP in sun» is based on former mark of previous company B. Ott & Cie. - their mark and that of JP isn't «in sun» but it's a gear's rim who rounded the capital letters BO and later JP.

Now this Technical Heritage is called popularly «Ott-Pauser’sche Fabrik» or «Ott-Pauser’sches Museum»; a working museum - open to the interested public.

Source of former maker’s mark of B. Ott & Cie.: «Goldschmiede-Handbuch», published 1905 in Berlin by «German Gold-, Silver- and Jewell Producers Association». If necessary «Bahner» could tell you correct title and editor.

I add a photo excerpt that you could see the former one; used by B. Ott & Cie.

Kind regards silverport
