Please help identify years.

Postby Kirils » Thu Jun 06, 2019 7:57 am

Hello. have this beautiful silver serving set for drinks (crystal is new). I'm a bit confused when it was made because it has 3 marks. First mark is of a maker (PMD) Pierre-Marie Devilleclair he worked from 1812 - 1824. The second mark is of a peacock, which was used from 1809. And the third mark is of a ladies face with letter P which was used by Silversmiths' Association 1793-1794. So the question is, when was it made? Thanks in advance.

Tardy says on page 188 concerning the lady's face: "Although of no value as a guarantee, this mark is found fifty years later on some Paris products". So the two other marks indicate the right time.

Agree about the date as identified, and just as a note, the silver standard mark is a plain old cock, not a peacock! Enjoy your liqueur serving set!
