Identification of Danish sterling silver flatware

Postby runlikeapuma » Mon Jan 21, 2019 11:42 am

I am trying to identify may silverware which I inherited from my parents. I am thinking it is a Danish pattern since my family is from there. I can see a stamp with three towers and a number 59 on a spoon and 61 on a fork. I am not able to identify the makers mark but it looks like 00 or something in this shape. Can anyone help me with the identification of this pattern. Peter

Thanks for the help on identifying my silver service. Freja it is, and I have found an antique store in Denmark from whom I can get a few pieces I am missing. Peter

I'm probably mistaken, but isn't the purity mark like one of those in this link: https://www.925-1000.com/dm_Assay.html

Though the mark shape differs from the link sample (lower right column), Johannes Siggaard is the assay master on the 1959 spoon. The unpictured 1961 fork should show Hansen's mark. [For anyone stumbling accross this in a towers search, beware of the two-tower mark on the right. The small red text explains its' use as a silverplate-only mark.]
