Info on this Danish Christian F. Heise spoon needed

Postby Cuban bob » Tue Mar 28, 2006 12:51 pm

Hi, Does anybody know what the JUJ (the last J is backwards) means and any other info on this spoon would be really appreciated.

I know its made by Christian F. Heise because it has CFH hallmark on it and i know it's made in 1928 because it has 3 towers hallmark with 28 below it.

Hi Bob,
C.F. Heise was the assayer, not the maker. The maker's mark is the JU backwards J. See this site, main page / European marks / foreign hallmarks / scroll down to Denmark (I don't know how to make a hot link).

Hello, 'JUL' is not the maker's mark, but the Danish word for christmas. Spoons like this are traditionally made just once for a short period of time at the end of the year. Best wishes, Bahner

And it is very common to put the guardein mark and the 3 towers.
3 towers is the city mark of Copenhagen used sinse 1608 but from 1893 the 3 towers coyuld be used all over Denmark. And at the same time it became up to the silver smith whether he wanted to use the mark.
