Primitive? No Marks

Hello, I have this very old, looks to be primitive piece of silver, perhaps to attach to something or wear around your neck. I have always thought it was brass or some other material, until I decided to try to polish it and discovered it was silver. It seems to be made by hand, inside it's packed wi...

Hello Silvercrown, I want to thank you for your help with my sterling whale pin. I appreciate your time identifying the marks. It's strange because I live about an hour away from the Danecraft Co. in Providence, RI, but never knew of it. I am sure there are many old and new pieces of jewelry around ...

Tom, You are so very kind to do all this work for me. Thank you so very much! I felt the same about the mark, I'm really not sure what way is correct. I just spent a long time going through the marks on the Dutch marks page. After looking for a long time and studing the shape, now I am not so sure i...

adding another piture of Maker's Mark

Hello Tom and Blakstone, Thank you both for your help! I thought the piece looked Dutch, but because the marks were hard for me to make out on my box, I really wasn't sure. I did look again at the Dutch Hallmarks and now that I know more about the marks, I can see that it is Dutch. I also thought th...

Miles,
I just wanted to let you know, that I tried taking more pictures of the Makers Marks, but the marks were just too worn and tiny to make out. I'm just so pleased to know all the information you gave me. Many thanks to you for your help!

Help with marks on old box

I would appreciate any help I can get with the marks on this old box. The marks are very worn, but I belive they are of a lion walking right, a mans head and possible another man or womans head. I have also included the makers mark which looks to be F or T and C? I hope the pictures are clear enough...

Hello Miles, Thank you so much for your reply and the date of my button hook. I do believe the maker's marks are L & S (with the L almost rubbed off and the & completely rubbed off, if that is what it is.) Could maker's be Levi & Salamon? I will take a few more pictures to see if I can g...

British Button Hook

Tom, Thank you for moving this to British sterling. I think the g with the other marks confused me to think this was Gorham. Sorry, I wasn't even thinking British. It's very hard to read the g so from what I have seen on the date marks In birmingham, England, the g on my hook is either early 1800's ...

Help with Gorham button hook

I do believe this is a Gorham button hook. The marks are so tiny that it's hard to make out. I can make out the anchor, lion walking right and I believe I can see the G. It does have steel stamped on the hook end. Would the handle be coin silver & date 1850 -1860? Does anyone know the pattern? T...

I would like to know if anyone knows the maker of this fish knife it's marked with GN. From looking at the British marks on the front page, it's from London, and the date is c. 1800. It does have a crowned leopard. Thanks for your help http://img8.picsplace.to/img8/17/silver.jpg" onclick="window.ope...

Hello Myriam, I see you do have similar ones, I don't have any marks on mine. So I am thinking they are reproductions and silverplate. They are somewhat old that I know. You are so kind to take the time and post your pictures for me to see. I really appreciate your time and help. Thanks again, Krist...
