Dutch Maker of Snuff or Tobacco Box

Postby dartsil » Tue Oct 08, 2019 7:59 am

I wonder if anyone can assist with the maker of this Dutch tobacco or snuff box?

Hi Dartsil,

Silver tobacco box ribbed pattern.

Minerva Head or assay office mark with regional assay office letter B for Utrecht. Standard mark lion passant 2 for silver 833/000.
The maker's mark appears to me I.B under "acorn"(?) one of the marks used by; Jan Henderik Christiaan Alexander Brinker, registered silversmith in the cities of Utrecht, Zwolle, Doesburg, Deventer and Zutphen from 1828-1888. Is there no year letter present?
