Hi Kath, Have you checked ebay for similar pieces in this pattern? Usually the more ornate, and well made the silver plate flatware is, the more collectible it is. Also, Serving pieces, cream soup spoons and some other pieces are usually worth more than standard pieces are. Knives are uisually the least popular. Hope this helps!

Hello, we are in need of help with these items. We aquired them from a friend whostates their mother had them for several years, I understand some of the items are 80 to 100 years old. Some are from Denmark, traveling overseas, and other places. I will be able to get markings shortly, as the items are being stored safely. Any information would be helpful as to maybe a better idea of names of the items, origin, etc. would be very helpful I apologize for being so brief as to the description. Thank You

For a comparison value. This one is stated to be antique eighteenth century, the one auctioned was 17th century. Then we add in the factor of "silverr details, based on oak, covered with blue or green velvet, with beads sapphire in the part of the nails of crucifixion, and the aura around amethyst stone embedded silver fringes, silk and silver.
I feel this piece is worthy of a professional taking a look at it to get a true value.

(Sorry for posting so many times)

# Estimate $1,000 - $1,200
# Starting Bid $500
I also note that the one that was auctioned off was not as detailed. In my eyes anyway.

True so true (re: "I believe the most copied works are generally what are of value or historical significance.")

The statement was made "It was bought in Portugal, in 1950, brought to Mexico for my father, belongs to my Mother,"
The statement has a ring of truth as Portugal has a long association with African ivory. May not have been new in 1950.

The following Crucifix with Portuguese origin, ivory sold for $5,500.00
I found it interesting the crucifix was 17th century and the cross was 19th century.

Thank you Oralei, Self policing is the greatest strength of the internet.
I admire your restraint in your comments. That being said, I believe the most copied works are generally what are of value or historical significance. Your info link, I'm sure, will help this person. Way out of my league .

It would seem that at least 14 pieces of sacred art and 180 archaeological pieces were stolen from diverse institutions and Mexican churches. It was also stated that "these objects were of inestimable historical value." Perhaps the National Institute of Anthropology and History, Mexico City, could give you more insight on exactly what it is that you have.
Comment by Artorable on August 13, 2010 at 12:37am
Boy Hernan de orduna! I thought your crucified Christ looked a lot like the one pictured in the recovered art pieces at the Mexican National Institute of Anthropology and History, as shown on Artdaily.org
