Help for hallmarks

Postby Smokanabeach » Wed Aug 26, 2020 1:22 pm

Hello,

I present to you today solid silver cutlery from France, 18th century.

I don't know much about 18th century punches, but in theory I should at least find on the handle of each place setting: a charge, discharge, "Jurande" (letter date) and goldsmith hallmarks.

However, this is not the case here. What would be the explanation? A production that has not been subject to tax?

Concerning the "X" with a crown, difficult to find a precise correspondence (the hallmark of the city of Metz 1774, cf. Tardy p. 159, could correspond but ...).

Also, I think the "easiest" would be to identify the goldsmith.

I therefore appeal to your high benevolence to resolve this problem ;-)

Thank you for your help!

Nicolas

I forgot: each piece of cutlery is punched with the french "crab".

Any idea?

Could it be Hanau pseudo-marks?
