Austrian, they say. it's true?

Yesterday I saw two candlesticks with these marks.
Image
The seller claims they are austrian, but the hallmark is different from the Austrian one I know.
Can anyone clarify the matter?
Thanks

A bishop's emblem

I have a 1773 incense boat with the duty mark of Ljubljana. It is engraved with the emblem of a bishop.
Can anyone recognize it?

Thanks for attention

Re: An antique (?) tankard

The two photos are taken from a different perspective, but I would say that it is the same tankard

Re: An antique (?) tankard

Hi legrandmogol
I found the tankard on the auction site you indicated. It's really the same. IAS is indicated as master's mark.
But I wonder: how can there be the master's mark on the sides of the tremolierstich? what meaning can it have?
Has anyone found a similar punching at other times?

Re: An antique (?) tankard

Thank you all for your input. I could think of doing an electronic test if the tankard was mine, but it is unthinkable for a dealer to take the test on demand. The seller, as often happens to the Parma's "Mercante in fiera", says: I do not know much, I have just found this object and I hav...

An antique (?) tankard

Hello everyone I have often heard "If you don't know what you are buying, don't buy!" and so I did; now I ask for advice. Yesterday I saw a beautiful tankard that looks ancient and northern European, but that has marks that I can't decipher. It's not really cheap and, as the seller says, i...

Re: Papal States Fork & Spoon c.1700?

First of all I apologize, because, looking better, Marco is Sebastiano's nephew and not son, as I wrongly wrote. The page is taken from the book Maestri argentieri gemmari e orafi di Roma, by Anna Bulgari Calissoni. https://i.postimg.cc/PLJrmGQh/CALIROMA225-copia.jpg Below you can see some examples ...

Re: Papal States Fork & Spoon c.1700?

There are actually two silversmiths with that mark: Gamberucci Sebastiano (1633-1658) and his son Marco (around 1650-1680). Gambero in Italian is shrimp. Even the papal mark seems seventeenth century. The strange thing is that the marks seem cast rather than struck and worn. Only you who have the pi...

The eagle with the letter R is the "ricognizione" mark (ascertainment) for objects made before 1824

Re: French or other??

The eagle with the letter R is the "ricognizione" mark (ascertainment) for objects made before 1814, in use in the kingdom of Sardinia. The other marks could be those in use from 1809 to 1814 under the French domination. However the letter B does not belong to any Pimontese district. Best ...

Re: Strange task 5

Re: Strange task 5

Of course the one who made the tablet did not take it from the sky, but from a silver object with that mark. Below you can see it in comparison with Rosenberg's picture. https://i.postimg.cc/T51XyzJd/paragone.jpg The point that is important to me, is not the similarity between the real mark and the ...

Re: Strange task 5

Hi Qrt.S The matter is a bit complicated. Studying the Parma's marks of the eighteenth century I realized that I never found a hallmark identical to the drawing published on the different books (Divis, Tardy, Donaver Dabbene, etc.), but only a few marks that only resemble the drawing. Why? https://i...

Re: Strange task 5

Hi
Thanks for cooperation.
As I said in "strange task 1" It is a collection of metal cuttings next to each of which there is the name of a city.
It is not possible to know which other marks there could be on the piece from which it was cut.

Re: Strange task 1

Thank you both for your reply. It is a collection of metal cuttings next to each of which is the name of a city. My impression is that it is a rather naive collection. Italian hallmarks are correctly identified but foreign ones, from what emerges from the expert opinion, are identified by hearsay. I...

Re: Strange task 2

Thank you both for your reply.
The matter gets complicated and so I decided to publish three more posts on these hallmarks that seem to have been collected by someone who didn't know much about them.
Sorry to bother you.

Strange task 5

I have the strange task of judging the competence of someone who has collected some silver marks and cataloged them. There are marks of Italian cities, but also marks that are attributed to European cities, and I have no authoritative texts on foreign silver, so I ask the experts for help. This mark...
