Imported by William Moering but from where?

Postby RudolfNL » Mon Aug 09, 2021 5:50 am

I have this beautiful tea caddy.
It is about 15 centimeters high and decorated on all sides with some Asian elements.

The Tea caddy was imported by William Moering from London in 1897 and it is 925 silver.

But I can’t figure out what the original country is.
At the bottom are 2 other marks.
Something that looks like a rooster.
And a letter A or letter V.
Could these be marks from Hanau, Germany perhaps?

Chinoiserie tea caddy, importers mark of William Moering. William Moering imported not only German silver but also Dutch "antique style " silver.

The A in square could be a Dutch pseudo Frisian year letter (Citroen Valse zilvermerken in Nederland # 5), and the rooster or cock has similarities with the pseudo maker's mark of The Hague silversmith Cornelis de Haan, 1755 - 1788 (Citroen # 406). However I am not 100% sure.

Thanks again!

Is there any place where one can see pictures or drawings from Citroen's book?
