Tom thanks for the info. I use 925-1000 on a regular basis. I am sure the piece is Norwegian. I did look at the Danish makers, but I could find no similar examples in Danish silver, but I can find similar examples in Norwegian silver. Also the family was Norwegian and the other pieces I got with this are Norwegian. In Norway 830 is the standard for 'sterling' but in the US the standard is 925. These are wonderful pieces done with excellent craftmanship.
Thanks for the help, everyone should us www.925-1000.com.

Glenn and Vicki, using the attached link will answer many of your questions. Once opened Bookmark it for future reference. ALL sterling from England has a Lion Passant (lion standing on 3 legs.). Therefore yours is not English. This link should ID it. http://www.925-1000.com/index.html

I think this is a sugar Casket. Very popular in Victorian era. Is it English? What can you tell us about the markings?
Comment by Glenn Freeman on February 7, 2009 at 1:50pm

Hi All, Hope someone can help. Recently purchased this silver box.(Maybe a small tea caddy 4" high by 3" dia.) Have attached photos with marks. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Country of origin, maker, silver content, value ?

Thanks
Glenn

Hi, Sounds like you made some great deals Tom - Thanks for the great info and site for silver too! Ellene that piece is gorgeous! I know that some Norwegian silver artists - even modern ones are very hot right now! Might be worth a bit more research. I just bought 3 boxes full of old silverplate flatware, but only got lucy with two pieces of sterling, still not bad, some nice old patterns and so forth, once I get everything all cleaned up I'll post some pics. thanks for sharing!

Pam, Your unidentified piece of K.W. 830 S.D. might be from Denmark, not Norway. There was a K.W. (Registered Hallmark) used by Knud Peter Wuift of Copenhagen from 1918-1937. The 830, as you state, refers to the finess of the silver in 1,000ths, or 83% silver. 92.5% equals sterling, so your piece doesn't qualify as being called sterling. I cannot find anything about SD, although there is a later silversmith with those initials also in Denmark. The following link is a FANTASTIC REFERENCE BOOK (on line) for silver lovers: http://www.925-1000.com/index.html

I bought a black, tarnished belt buckle of silver with a silver dollar in it. It cost me a quarter! That was in Spokane 5 years ago. The coin was welded to the buckle, but still, after polishing, I sold it for $35. This past summer I bought another chrome belt buckle with 4 "ears" bent over encompassing another silver dollar. The dollar was badly tarnished. I paid $5.00 for it. It came out easily and I cleaned it. The coin is worth over $50. I bought a box of kitchen do-dads for $2. because there was a Gorham Sterling Silver Sardine Fork in it worth $135.00.
At garage sales I always ask about silver serving pieces, forks, spoons, etc. Nobody ever uses them around here so if they have them they will sell them and they are really a hot item for resale.

I forgot to say that the lazy susan is on a pedestal base - which revolves.

Comment by Ellene Meece on January 22, 2009 at 5:14pm
I have this pretty silver plate lazy susan that belonged to my grandmother circa 1920's. It has glass tray insets and also an ornate silver cover that goes in the center that is not pictured. Has anyone seen one like this?


On my site, Grandma's Treasures Online, I offer this 75 year old Silverplate Hollowware tray on pedestal, Pattern #811 by Sheffield Silver Co (USA).

Good morning all. Its a bright cold day here in SE Minnesota. Vicki here are a couple of photos from my shop:
First is the Tiffany telephone dialer

This dialer is American so it is marked Tiffany Sterling. Sterling meaning it is 925 silver, which is 925/1000 silver.
Here is a piece of the Norwegian silver, this is a pierced ladle. I have not found this silversmith yet.

830 is the silver standard for Norway, that is 830/1000 silver.
Hope these give you a couple of examples of different silver marks. I am off to do my shipping for the day.
