I need help from the forum to identify this silversmith hallmark

Postby siroco2003 » Thu May 03, 2018 9:39 am

I have this silver chalice and I can't identify the silversmith. Any help will be appreciated. I was told it was Armand Caillat's, but I'm not sure.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

Are there no other marks?

Yes of course. The usual Minerva French hallmark. I didn’t think it was important. It’s french silver. The chalice is hallmarked at the cup and at the base.

Best wishes

Hi Trev.

Other hallmarks found. I'm going to ask for other pieces I have doubts. I guess that I have open a new post.
