17th century German silver tumbler unknown

Postby legrandmogol » Sat Nov 21, 2020 10:12 am

This cup was part of the lot I recently acquired. It has a very blurred city mark and a less blurred makers mark. The maker's mark appears to be MN or possibly MM. I don't know what the city mark is. I'm going to keep looking but hopefully, someone will figure it out. It measures about 2" tall x 2.75" wide. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, I think I figured this one out. I think it is Martin Noetzel of Wuerzburg

thank you for the confirmation. It was only because of your work at Silberpunze that I found that. Do you know Martin Noetzel's working dates? Also, do you know if Wuerzburg had date letters in their mark? I think mine has an H but that's not definitive.

The letter H is not a dateletter.
I do not know, what this letter means, but I know some Items aubout from 1700 with this letter.
Normaly there is a letter W = Würzburg.


Martin Noetze, master 1681,
mentioned ..1709

thank you for the information. I keep my eye for german silver books but they're often very expensive and not easily found in the US
