Re: Assay office marks on French occupied towns 1798-1815

Hi Mike, if you mean the regional assay office letters used by our assay offices today and in the past, yes I have.

Re: Assay office marks on French occupied towns 1798-1815

Until when the French hallmarks are used in the Dutch occupied city assay offices depend on liberation date and getting the new approved hallmarks. It was a matter of making do with what you have. October 1813, Napoleon's defeat at Leipzig. The Netherlands November 1813 liberation, the French are o...

Re: A French centerpiece

Hi Bijoux,
As for the Leo (zodiac sign) hallmark, the time period it was in use, where can I find that? My source only mentions the year 2000 when it was discontinued, not when it was introduced. Would you please cite your sources. Thanks. Enjoy the weekend.

Hi, for openers see Sweden

Actually not made in Sweden but imported into Sweden, the triple crown in a horizontal oval frame-shape, this import mark was discontinued in 1988.

Hi, To explain, modern Danish hallmarks, legislated into law in 1888, went into full legal force in 1893. Based on the system put into place, all makers of gold or silver articles were required to stamp their work with their maker's mark and the metal fineness. After being stamped with the maker's m...

Re: Some Danish HAM?

Some commemorative spoons are plain tablespoons with an inscription.

The engraved date of 16/5.91, refers to an commemorative event, a reminder to a special occasion. The spoon itself was probably made and marked between 1896 and 1948, the working period of this silversmith.

Re: Unknown maker and date on silver Torah pointer

The yad could have been made before 1859 but also sometime between 1859 and 1893. The yad was unmarked. The silver content is unknown, when and where the yad was made, and why it was unmarked is unknown. At some point between 1859 and 1893, the yad was offered for re-sale at an auction house/public ...

Re: Unknown maker and date on silver Torah pointer

Your yad, Dutch duty mark only and without a Dutch maker's mark, judging by style, we might say probably Dutch or continental or? No more than that.

Re: Unknown maker and date on silver Torah pointer

By the way, I believe that the style of the yad does not necessarily makes it Dutch. I'm going for the German-speaking region. Silver content around 800/000, below the Dutch legal minimum content of 833/000 (1814-1953). A XRF analysis device can provide the answer. Peter Source; Crowning Glory Silve...
