Danish Mid-19th Century Silver

Postby louisianagrey » Wed Dec 28, 2016 1:00 pm

These are some of the items belonging to my great-grandparents. They were married in Randers in Denmark in 1869 and moved to England soon afterwards, so all of the items relate to that date or earlier. From this site I know about the three towers mark, although I can't read some of the dates.

The first (the oldest) belonged to the bride's father. I can see the mark for Peter Hinnerup, but presumably the P Hertz is the father of the one who is mentioned on this site with a date of 1893? And is the 56 a date mark?

This second fork belonged to the couple. I think the date is 69 and I think the mark is Simon Groth, but the same question applies about the identity of P Hertz.

I did post photos, and I could see them yesterday. Admin has presumably decided to remove them. If the sizes on the posting requirements were shown in pixels then I would be able to edit them down to the correct size. In inches or centimetres I have no idea what size they are when I post them. On my Ipad they're well below 7 inches.

OK, second attempt. To illustrate the point I was making about photo sizes, I looked up the pixel/size conversion. On my monitor with a display resolution of 100 dpi these photos are 7 inches wide. However, according to the website, if your monitor's resolution is only 75 dpi, which is common, apparently, then the pictures will be 9.33 inches wide. That's why quoting sizes in pixels would be far more sensible.
