Strange hallmarks that I've never seen before

Postby AllSeasons » Sun Jan 02, 2022 11:23 pm

Has anyone ever seen these marks before? Pseudo-marks? Silver-plate? Hanau?

These are found on some spoons I'm interested in buying. Do the marks indicate sterling?

Thank you in advance!

Both father and son worked for the company A. Bonebakker & Zn and other retailers, Bonebakker's retailer's mark is therefore often seen on work made by D. van Outvorst. Father and son made silver cutlery and large silver. The Outvorst made beautiful, high-quality silverware.

Thank you for the reply and detailed info. I unfortunately did not win this online auction, but I did learn something, which is great.
