Silver wine taster - can you help me date it?

Postby Luckman » Mon Mar 16, 2009 8:41 pm

Hi, I found this item in an antiques shop and I'm having difficulty identifying the country and the date. I think it's Dutch because I saw a similar hallmark on the Dutch silver site, but I'm not sure if it's an "A" or an "L". There isn't an example of the "A" in the list. Thanks for your help. Luckman.

Hi,

It's a V (from "Vreemd" .. Dutch for "foreign"). That (tax) stamp was used between 1906 and 1953 on items of foreign origin.
I think the rest of the marks are pseudo-marks.

Hope that helped,

Alain
