Hi Bonnie, Nice to see you again. With your first item you're helpful to me. I have a bracelet like this in my sort out pile. Now I know Tunisian men's cuff bracelet. Thank you.
I asked help in a facebook group. They could find an action of a silver dish with the same marks. The Action House did not know either.
The number 3 is a mark for the weight. The numbers go from 1 (5 gram) to 20 (100 gram). So your number 3 means 15 gram. More information (in Dutch) on https://www.antiek-encyclopedie.nl/categorie...
Nice brooch! Around 1900 I think. Otherwise the pin should have been longer.
What a great collection. How long have you been collecting?
I'm sorry but all your photos are out of focus. An Italian makers mark consist of numbers and 2 letters. The number is for the silversmith and the 2 letters are initials for the province. You can ...
Well, I'm from The Netherlands and it certainly seems Dutch to me .
See the comment on Germany silver at 925-1000.com Germany silver standards are 800, 835, 830, 900, 925 and 935. 835 means .835 purity instead of .925 purity. Sterling is .925 purity.
Now I can see the mark. The makers mark is from Friedrich Speidel - Pforzheim (Germany).
Your photo with the marks of the bracelet is out of focus. Can you place a better one? 835 is the mark for .835 silver purity. It is used in Germany, Norway, The Netherlands and some other country'...
Thanks everyone for the love. Shareurpassion, it is marked Zuni. That mark I can read. I'm not sure of the last name of the artist. I made 15 photo's of the marks, this one is the best. (Next to ...
Another beautiful addition to your collection.
What a beautiful brooch, really a masterpiece. Glad to read you are feeling better. Groetjes uit Nederland, Heleen
beautiful brooch. I love garnets.
I think the decor is named Old Delft.
This is not a coin but a token. The text is "Kindergeld" German for childrens money (toy money). It isn't silver but just metall.
The big coin Bachmann is a coin for a parking garage or other parking place. It is to open the gate. It's no currency. The small coins are Danish. The currency in Danmark is the Danish Kroner. 1 Kr...
The text on the side is "God zij met ons" (God be with us). Juliana was queen until 1980.
I think it is not from Nils Westerback, unfortunately. Nils Westerback is from Finland and his master mark is different. In addition, the mark for gold in Finland is 585 and these are marked 14k.
I love it!!!
Beautiful brooch, I think it's Pierre Bex
Thanks Newfld and nutsabotas6 for your kind comment. Thanks everyone for the love.
Your vase is made by the firm Plazuid also known as Plateelbakkerij Zuid-Holland. The firm was located in Gouda, The Netherlands. The decor name is Sary. Painted by LV. The up Arrow is the sign ...
Hi Steptoe1. I paid € 22,00 to the jeweler and bought the ring for € 0,10. I thought it was a bargain.
On the site of Kikizilver there are several miniatures with a base plate like this. They call it "sigaretten dover" (Excuses for the Dutch words, I don't know how to translate it).
Thanks nutsabotas6 and Efesgirl.
My husband bought it at a dutch website: americanbikeshop.nl as a birthday gift for me.
I just love it. Great buy.
Is the mark on the brooch the same as on the silver bangle of Efesgirl? See http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/226328-odd-silver-bangle?in=user
I think it's pressed amber. It floads on salt water.
I was looking for jewelry. Went to 3 "vrijmarkten" in Ede with my son and daughter. (The only day in the year they go along with me). We started at 06.00 and were back home at 14.00.) I didn't feel my...
Thanks Elisabethan. Your necklace looks a lot like mine. Not the shape of the beads but the color. I cleaned the necklace and tested with simichrome on the beads. No reaction.
Thanks Elisabethan. I have cleaned the necklace and tested with simichrome on the beads but no reaction.
Never seen one of them before. Nice find!
I cleaned the tea strainer and added a photo. Quite a difference. Thanks Efesgirl, vetraio50, SpiritBear and shareurpassion for your advice. Thanks everyone for the love!
Thank you for the love nutsabotas6, aura, vetraio50, kyratango, ho2cultcha and racer4four. Thanks Bonnie, in that shop the employees do not look at jewelry at all. They are only looking for gold.
I cann't read the makers mark on the left, it is out of focus. Beside that mark says Tin with a 4 under it. Tin is the Danish word for pewter.
Thanks Bonnie, quick as allways. I don't know how to recognize celluloid but shall try to find something on the internet.
HH = Herman Hooijkaas from Schoonhoven, The Netherlands. They used this mark from 1943 - 1978.
Can you make a picture of the marks?
No sterling silver or pewter, 90 means silver plated. This is a representation of the "Nachtwacht" (night watch) a famous painting of Rembrandt van Rijn.
AAM in Belgium is the "Archives d'Architecture Moderne" . (The archive of modern architecture). Otherwise I would not know.
Thanks Efesgirl, nutsabotas6 and valentino97 for your kind comments. Thanks everyone for the love.
I love garnets. Very nice collection.
Hi Bonnie, the black pendant is marked ZI. The necklace bottem right is marked with the Dutch sword. The necklace with rubber (left) is marked with a makers mark. There is also a ring with a mak...
It is a short necklace. It's 41 cm and the largest beads are 2 cm.
Thank you all for the love. Thank racer4four for the compliment but I'm just a novice. Collect only for 5 years.
Love your brooches. I bought a bracelet last friday. Apparently it was a Bulatti week last week.
