Makers Mark ID on Ladle

Postby moonshine » Sun Jul 31, 2016 10:52 pm

Hello All. I've looked through the Dutch Makers Mark site linked from this website, and could not find this mark. The first letter is difficult to read.
The closest I found was Johannes Hendrikus Tarner, but the dates don't match up if I'm reading the date correctly as 1895 Amsterdam.
12 inches long, 207 grams.
Any help is appreciated as always. Thanks.

Hi Moonshine, Dutch year letter Gothic L for 1895, office mark or Minerva head with regional assay office letter A(upside down) for city of Amsterdam.
The maker's mark WT under a spoon for: Johannes Wilhelm Tarner, regstered in Amsterdam after 1872 till 1910. Johannes Wilhelm Tarner also used the maker's mark 2JWT. Johannes Wilhem Tarner and his son Johannes Hendricus registered a maker's mark in 1911, W.T under a spoon under the name of Fa.(firm) J.W. Tarner (Tarner J.H & W.J. Tarner) until 1925 when Johannes Hendricus became a travelling salesman.

The father of Johannes Wilhelm was Johannes Hendrikus Tarner, registered silversmith in Amsterdam from 1840/1879 with maker's mark HT under a spoon.

The maker's mark of Johannes Wilhelm Tarner, notice the art style of the W:

Hello, I hope this set of spoon marks I noted might be the "Daddy" and a useful addition to this post.

I think the year is 1860 but the City letter is unclear.

Hi Fishless,

Yes, you completed the family. The father of Johannes Wilhelm was Johannes Hendrikus Tarner, registered silversmith in Amsterdam from 1840/1879 with maker's mark HT under a spoon. Indeed year letter a for 1860.

Cheers,


Peter
