Vintage gold ring hallmark

Postby tentate » Sun Feb 11, 2018 6:29 pm

Hi everybody!
I am trying to find out this gold hallmark.
It resembles or a bird's head (with two feathers on his head) or a fox's head or something similar in which case the previous feathers could be its mouth, no idea.
Any help is appreciated, thank you[Image][/img]

Hi Trev, thanks for your answer.
It is funny, but I can see the image, it doesn't matter if I am logged or not, you know why?
Thanks!

Hi,

That's a Czechoslovakian mark, believe it indicates 585/1000 (14ct) gold.

Hi,
Trev is right.It`s Czechoslovakia hallmark 4 (so called lapwing) used for 585/1000 fineness until the year 1993.

Hello!
I was wondering if it is known when this hallmark started being used? I saw online the lapwing was used until 1993, but did they start using it in 1918 when Czechoslovakia became independent or possibly earlier?
Thank you for any information!

Hi,
It was used since 1921 (Czechoslovakia Republic after dissolution of Habsburg empire).
