Mark on 1949 DANMARK spoon
Posted: Thu Jun 10, 2010 10:45 am
Please, does someone recognise the maker's mark on this Danish silver spoon? The 0.830 silver three-tower mark and the Guardian's mark are clear, but the maker's mark is difficult to read. The spoon was assayed in 1949.

Not absolutely sure, but it may be Hansen & Andersen, first mark here

Many thanks for pointing me to Hansen & Andersen. In spite of the wear to the mark, it's possible to see that the mark on the spoon is theirs. Is it a problem that Hansen & Andesen apparently stopped in 1947, whilst the spoon was assayed in 1949?
Hansen & Andersen 1947; spoon assayed 1949 = stock sale?

Could it maybe assayed for sale - as part of a liquidation sale?
Kind regards silverport
