Hamburg Mark "F" on Door

Postby mdhavey » Sat Nov 28, 2020 5:16 pm

]I have a Hamburg mark fish server knife with nicely engraved face. The "F" on the door seems to be 1857 or later, according to my research, which is limited because I don't speak German. The maker's mark is worn, but appears to start with H E ? M...

Any thoughts?

Begins Herman? If so, how many letters after that?

As near as I can tell, though it is pretty worn, it appears to be H E R M _ _ _ _ _ Or maybe 5 letters after HERM

Though it could be 6 or 4.

That seems right. Great sleuthing. Thanks!

I might surmise the full name is HERMANN MEYER, though I can find nothing about said silversmith.

Do you have any info on Herr Herm. Meyer.?
