Re: Mark identification help - sugar tongs

Hello,

See William Reynolds of Cork in the Irish Provincial marks section:
https://www.925-1000.com/IrishProvincial_09.html

Given the design of the tongs, think they are more likely to be the work of the younger Reynolds.

Re: unknown mark please help to identify thank you

A bit difficult to read against the textured background, it would help with the ID if you would describe what letters you see in the mark.

Hi Jannie,

Possibly Peter Clarke Daniel, although I'd wait for confirmation on that.

Hi Hose-dk,

Temporarily moving to Russian silver, perhaps someone here can shed some light on this Shebanov/Шебановъ mark.

Hello,
I can't speak the marks, but the cup form, decoration and construction technique all point to South American origins. For a good sampling of images of near identical cups, google - Bolivian silver cup.

Hi,
I've straightened out your coding as best I can, however the url of the second image was too adulterated to trace the original address. Please post the image of the item again.

Thanks, Tom

Hi, I believe your box was made by Erhard & Söhne of Schwabische Gmund, Germany, and that it likely dates to the first third of the 20th century. Here is a link to the google translation of Erhard's German Wikipedia entry: https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=https://de.w...

On the other hand, I'm fairly sure that the design is by Alphonse LaPaglia, dating from his days at International silver. Believe I had a couple of these goblets with Lapaglia/International mar...
