Silver?

Postby PW333abc » Mon Nov 16, 2020 6:21 am

Hello!

I would be very thankful for help.
It’s a spoon with these stamps. Is it genuine silver or nickel silver? I think it’s nickel silver.

Best regards

Per

I also believe it is silver plated/nickel silver, e.g. 80 gram used on 12 spoons. The teapot mark leads my taught to Norway. In Oslo was a silversmith by the name of Johan Ludvig Sæther, active 1924-1963. His mark was a teapot, but on silver. Is it him or not is difficult to say because here we have a plated object. Marks on silver plate can be anything. There is no standard whatsoever.

@dognose

Yes, but also Galvano Plated. Anyway, I still believe in Norway.
