Re: Silver Salt

Just looking at the information you provided, the double headed eagle, the letter D year letter and the maker's mark TB. Educated guess. I believe the silver salt could be Dutch. Double headed eagle town mark of Middelburg used 18th century. Maker's mark TB for: Toussaint Brunel, registered in Midde...

Re: Strange task 2

Hi Amena,

It appears to me some kind of flower (tulips) basket? Do not believe it to be for silver made in/or town mark Amsterdam. Perhaps seen on pewter made in Amsterdam, I do not know. I will ask my connections.

Best,

Peter.

Re: 17th century Amsterdam Folding Fork Spoon Combo

The marks are not clear. One mark points vaguely towards the town mark of Amsterdam, one mark looks like a B with is bottom in an oval, the third and partially struck mark, four legged animal(?) in shield, unknown. Without having the traveling set in hand it is hard to make a judgement. NB. Many rep...
