London & Other marks, Silver salt

Postby nikka0202 » Fri May 01, 2020 12:50 pm

Hello,
I am trying to identify this double salt dish. It appears to have two sets of hallmarks. It does bear the head for London?
Thank you for any information!

The London marks are import marks with the date letter i for 1904 and the F to show that it is an import. SB is Sidney Brooks, who registered this mark as an "importer of foreign plate". The other marks are those of the manufacturer and may well be from Hanau, but I can't immediately find a match; no doubt one of our other contributors will come up with an answer.

Hi,
Right, it is Hanau,Neresheimer & Sohne.
See here:
https://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_hanau_marks_01.html
There are three Hanau marks in your salt;your mark on the left is s520,the mark on the right N is pseudo mark often used to imitate Nuremberg.Hanau silversmiths used various combinations of pseudo and phantasy marks,perfect match of full set of marks is sometimes seen, but most of the time one matching mark is enough for positive identification.
