need help identifying this Norwegian makers mark

Postby slgwb » Fri May 30, 2008 9:25 pm

Here is the third spoon I spoke of in an earlier post. I do so appreciate your help here. This is the only website I have found to be of help. This Norwegian spoon has a bird at the top and a cow with trees below. It is very smal at 4 3/4". Hope someone can help. Thanks you so much.

Hello.

One of my reference books shows that an ASH mark was used by A/S Hodne, Kristiansand, Norway (c. 1969).
Not sure this is your mark, Norwegian silver is not my area.
Hope someone else can help more.

Pat.

Hello,
According to a new book by Per Bredo Østby, called "Norske gull-og sølvstempler gjennom tidene 1500-1950"(Norwegian gold- and silvermarks, 1500-1950), this mark was used by Aslak Sørensen Hodne, Kristiansand, b. 1858-d. 1936

Hello
The patten of your spoon is called "Tiur" (after the bird) and is made by Hans Hohles Sølvvarefabrikk in Oslo. They started to produce it in 1927 until 1936.

Well, now you know a lot about your spoon: It was made by Hans Hohles Sølvvarefabrikk (Hans Hohle's Silverware Factory) between 1927-1936, and afterwards stamped by the local silversmith Aslak Sørensen Hodne.
It was not uncommon for a local silversmith to stamp items made elsewhere.
