Re: Help with fork ID. Possibly Solomon Royes?

Hi Strangenoises and welcome to the forum, Your research is spot on and so your attribution to Solomon Royes, London assayed early 1821(as there were changes to the marks that year) and of course sterling silver are all correct. The engraved letter is undoubtedly the surname initial of an owner but ...

Hi MaltaMike610, I'm far from an expert on Swedish or German silver but here is what i think. Goldstein is correct with the date of 1918 but I have to disagree with him on the origin of this one and agree with your initial interpretation of it being German made as it carries the Swedish import stamp...

Hi Carolyn, I have embedded the link for you. You obviously already know it is German and post 1886. The maker is unknown to me but please be patient as there are forum members who have far more knowledge in this area than I. Cheers, Steve http://www.elegantarts.com/images/DSCN0011.JPG

I was too quick and focused on the maker mark. It is absolutely 1911. Sorry about that.

Hi Traintime, Yes you are correct, 1931. The maker is Robinson & Co Ltd, The Square, Shrewsbury. The photos is a little small for me to tell which of the two registered marks you have. Which ever, it will be either the latest seen of the 1st mark or the earliest seen of the 2nd. Can you provide ...

Re: Assuming this is silver plate?

Hi Laura, I have some good news for you. The mark on the left is easily identifiable as one of the numerous marks used by the Hanau silversmith company of B. Neresheimer & Son. This also means your double salt (yes, I agree) is solid silver. It will most likely be made from 800 fineness. To find...

Re: Gorham Sterling year and silver type?

Hi,

The pattern is called Classic Bouquet and it is made from solid sterling silver as marked. I believe the pattern was introduced in 1972 and ceased in 1991.

Re: Austro-Hungarian silver cutlery who is the maker?

Hi Niceguy1. The shape of the cartouche containing the Diana head indicates the silver content. In this case the cartouche is the five lobed cinquefoil which represents 800 fineness silver. It also has the tiny number 3 within the cinquefoil which also stands for 800 grade. As a side point, the tiny...

Hi Buckm,

Your platter was made by the partnership of Thomas Ellerton & Richard Sibley I. Their mark was registered in London in 1803, the same year as your platter.

Re: No Assay Office shown

Hi,
Confirming the year is 1802 which is too late for Thomas Dene. It works in perfectly however for Thomas Dicks. If you look at both maker marks, they are practically identical. You can find them here:
