Re: Polish Makers Mark Help Please

I should have said "mostly plated articles". Here it actually is solid silver.

Re: Polish Makers Mark Help Please

I think it is the mark of Hefra, a merger of Henneberg and Fraget, producing plated articles.

Re: Maker and style of teapot?

@silverK
Important for your question is - I think - Koch & Bergfeld and 1890. The material of the insulators is completely unimportant, because that changed in the course of time and has no relevance for the style.

Re: Please help identify years.

Tardy says on page 188 concerning the lady's face: "Although of no value as a guarantee, this mark is found fifty years later on some Paris products". So the two other marks indicate the right time.

The item is German, made by Heinrich Carl Theodor DUBOIS in Braunschweig (Brunswick) around 1850.

Re: Lion passant, maker's mark but no town mark

I just made the x-ray test. Result: 94% silver. So the prongs are sterling. In my first post I wrote that the inscription on the blades would read "Preis T & Co". Right is: PREIST & Co. I found this company in the Internet but not the foundation date. I believe the blades not to be...

Re: Lion passant, maker's mark but no town mark

The front parts of the forks are not magnetic. To be on the safe side, later I'll do a x-ray test.

Re: Lion passant, maker's mark but no town mark

Hi Trev., a completely new idea for me. You mean made in the technics of Boulsover? The prongs are not 'bleeding'. How can I recognize if plated without x-ray test? Even on the tips of the prongs I couldn't discover traces of wear and tear which point to a plating. The outer tips of the prongs are s...

Re: Lion passant, maker's mark but no town mark

I add a new photo after having cleaned and polished the canteen. When seeing the forks first I thought that the prongs were chromium plated. They are not marked. But when cleaning I got the feeling that they are solid silver. Was it not prescribed to mark front parts which could be separated from th...

Re: Lion passant, maker's mark but no town mark

Hi Trev., thank you. Dru Drury II (strange name for my ears) was obviously a man with some more interests than silversmithing. Member MCB wrote: Drury left the management to his son William in 1789. At another place I could read that he retired from silversmithing in order to devote more time to ent...

I have 6 big knives, 6 big forks, 6 dessert knives and 6 dessert forks which bear the Lion Passant and a maker's mark "DD", some of the small handles bear, I think, a different maker's mark which I could not identify (see photos). On the blade I read "Preis T & Co, 225 Oxford Stre...

Crest on a tankard

On my tankard London 1767 made by William Tuite is a rather big crest, of which I would like to know to what family it belongs. Regards silverfan http://i67.tinypic.com/34rb03b.jpg http://i66.tinypic.com/2j16g4m.jpg http://i65.tinypic.com/zt6l4z.jpg

Re: Tankard London 1767 W.T

Hello Phill,
thanks again for your helpfull answer. When looking on your own page I discovered the mark of William Tuite, but without point between W and T!?
In the internet I found that he worked from 1755 to 1775 and that he obviously was a skilled silversmith. Is that right?

Re: Wagner 12 - maker/age help

Your item is marked 12 that means 12 Lot = 750/1000 silver, so it is not plated but solid silver. Time frame: mid 19th century. Without town mark it is difficult to find the maker.

Maker of your knife is Wilkens, Bremen. Model No. 116A designed before 1900 (there was also a model 116B with a bigger cartouche). Monogram N with Freiherrenkrone (baron's crown).
