Hi

The maker is Christian F Heise, Copenhagen. Sorry I can´t help with the F.I.H initials. Could be F.J.H, F. J. Hingelberg - Aarhus 1897 - 1937, that would be a wild guess though.

Your first assumption was correct, Heise is the assayer, FIH the maker. I've just checked with the Danish Ædelmetalkontrollen, and they don't have an FIH registered anywhere near that timeframe, so I think it is likely to be Hingelberg.

Hi Tom,
Often marked with full name, but not always. Registered FJH in 1897 and used it until 1937.

Yes, that was the year it was assayed. Have you deleted the images?

The images should show up, maybe that free server where I put them on was down for a while.
Any clues about that hardly recognizable mark at the upper left, or the mark with the little mouse in the centre???
