Unknown maker

Postby Kirils » Thu Apr 05, 2018 10:18 am

Hello. Have this beautiful Silver cake spatula from the beginning of 19th century. Can someone please help me identify this maker? Looks like two letters LI with a bell and a cup.

Hi

I think what you describe as a bell is a rubbed letter A. I believe this is the mark of Louis Angee.

Zilver2 has made a transcription error here; the dates and addresses given are for Louis-Jacques Berger, not Louis Isidore Angée. (They appear on the same page of Arminjon I and the marks look similar – an easy mistake to make!)

Angée registered his first mark on 1 Apr 1834 at 11 Place Dauphine; he cancelled that mark on 30 May 1842, and registered a second, identical mark on the same day at the same address. There is no cancellation date for this second mark, but his last listing in Didot’s Commercial Annual is in 1852.

Louis Isidore Angée was born on 3 Jun 1805 in Les Authiuex-Papion, Calvados, the son Jean-Francois Angée & Francoise Ursule Jule Demont. He married in Paris, 2e arronsdissement, on 12 Apr 1834 to Jeanne Augustine Elisa Moullyot. Unfortuately, I have not found a record for his death but, as noted, he appeared to be working until at least 1852.
