Dawn Bowe replied to Jeff Guy's discussion Anyone recognize this etched mark on crystal? in the group Whadja Find Today
"This vase is by Piell and Putzer, made in the 1970's. They were in business 1903-1970 but didn't use that acid mark until 1970. "

"I would love to see all the pieces that came with the set. And, if yours is a tilting teapot ( those can be worth quite a bit of $$) does match, and has a makers mark, it might be easier to decide who made the tray as well! Antique and Vintage tea…"

"Vicki, thank's for the info. It did actually come with a complete tea and coffee set, and another couple odd unrelated items. I knew that the set was a "marriage" and silver plated which is why I didn't bother to include it in…"

"Very Pretty Tray! Most all trays like this are made of Silver plate, because silver is too soft to be sturdy enough to hold a full tea and or coffee set - which is what yours is missing. Many times the rest of the pieces get broken, lost or replaced…"

"I did acid test the tray and it is indeed only silver plated. A good thick plating and the tray is pretty impressive, weighing in at almost 11 pounds. I didn't want to damage it by filing into it so I tested it initially by just putting a drop…"

"First Hallmark (HM) is a Celtic cross, 2nd is a lion passant, which is an old London HM.3rd HM is 2 headed eagle Russian HM. No idea what 4th and 5th are. This confusion of marks is indicative of fakery; not saying it is fake, but could be. The…"

"I think you're probably right that it's plated. Bummer. Still very pretty and beefy so hopefully I'll do ok with it."

"My impression is that this is silver-plated, and not silver - mainly because of the handles and high spots of grape decoration. These are the high spots which would show the most wear,  where the thin layer of silver electroplate shows through…"

"The last mark looks quite similar to the below image. Edmond Johnson was a silversmith working in the late 19th century and early 20th century, based in the Grafton Street and Wicklow street areas. In 1879 he started restoration work on the Ardagh…"

"Can't help much with makers marks, but research I am good at. Given there is sufficient information to identify the man in the inscription, a great deal of information can be dug up about him online, given his prominence. For example... 12…"

Identify silver tray age? maker?

I purchased this silver tray today. I am trying to figure out who made it, when, where...  I am leaning towards Austria, maybe Vienna. It is engraved with a message which includes the date 1904. I've included a photo of the whole tray and a couple of the hallmarks. There are 5 marks. First mark? No clue although I did find a photo that included that mark or a very similar mark on something identified as Harrison Brothers, Sheffield. I don't think my tray is Harrison Brothers but it's a clue.…See More

Dawn Bowe replied to Jack Messina's discussion What was this used for? – no, it's not a vintage selfie stick = ) in the group Whadja Find Today
"For holding opera glasses, I think. The mother of pearl got my attention since I have a couple pairs of opera glasses that would match."

Dawn Bowe replied to Lloyd Levine's discussion Print or Original Drawing or something else entirely ? in the group Whadja Find Today
"It does look like an original drawing. I tried to blow it up and don't see the telltale dot pattern of a print. Also Al Rosen was MVP in 1953 so I would assume the drawing was created in 1954 since it says "last years most valuable…"
