Need help identifying this object

Postby Kirils » Thu May 16, 2019 9:50 am

Hello. As the topic says, I need help to identify the maker and when it was made. As I understand correctly this should be German as there is used 12 Loth silver (750). I do not know what deer stands for. Is it a maker or is a City?

I have seen similar marks. But I think it is not German. Probably Rumania ...

Hi,
Theoderich is most likely right about the Romanian origin of the basket.
Bacău (German: Bakau),located in Moldavia region in the east of the country.
Many silversmiths from Balkan countries were trained in Austria-Hungary and when returned back home used Loth standards and even created their own town mark punches.

Regards
