Scandinavian mark 1842

Postby Janjaap Luijt » Wed Apr 19, 2006 4:52 am

Could someone tell me in which town these marks were used. I found them on a silver porridge-spoon.

Believe it's Norwegian, my references are so inadequate, know that the zodiac "cancer" symbol indicates when in 1842 it was assayed, the last mark appears to be a mirror-image of the Oslo (Christiania/Kristiania) city coat of arms.

I wasn't sure about the Oslo mark.
Do you know where I could find additional info about this mark?

Can't say that I've ever seen it before, and Norwegian marks are a particularly weak point in my very limited Scandinavian references. Perhaps I'm not seeing it correctly, but looks like St. Hallvard, the patron saint of Oslo with three arrows in one hand and a millstone in the other, lion's heads and stars on either side and a deceased lady in front of him. Beyond that, I'm totally ignorant.

nope, you couldn't have nailed it more precisely, reversal and all.

Jan Jaap, the zodiac is a precise mark when it was stamped, so between 21st of June and 22nd of July.

The FB mark may be an essayers mark.

Hi,
Got a brief look at Norske Solvstemplar by Jorunn Forsberg today. Can confirm the pictorial mark as Oslo/Christiana/Kristiana, no specific dates, but used in the 19th cent. Crowned "C" was used earlier.
The "C" on this piece is the assay or guardian stamp for H. Clausen (1824-46)
The "FB" is the maker's mark for Fredrik Julius Brinck (b. 1808 - d.1867)
He was active after his apprenticeship from 1833 to 1857.
Lacking a Norwegian translator, the date info is correct, but what they refer to may be somewhat off.

Regards, Tom

I can translate the norwegian text.
I can add that (in Denmark) the Zodiakalsign 69 was in use from 1676 to 1830 - the the Naturalistic signs was in use from 1830-1852.
As the Norwegian way was linked to the danish (in the past) they just didnt shift as the danes did.
