Will I have in my possession what I believe to be authentic

Customer Question

Hi Will I have in my possession what I believe to be authentic German collectible silverware...3 pieces in total. There are markings on the bottom of each that will hopefully help you to authenticate these for me and possibly value if you'd be so kind. Regards

Hi,

Thank you for the image - would it be possible to please send an extreme, in-focus close-up of the marks. And just to verify, are the marks the same on all the pieces?

Hi Nora no the markings are different as you can see
Expert:  Nora replied 11 months ago.

Hi,

Thank you for the image of the lighter. In order for me to properly assess what you have, I really need to see extreme close-up, in-focus images of the marks on them.

I'm afraid I'm struggling with the camera I have to do this. These are 3 closer shots

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I'll send them separately in case it's the files too large

Certainly

Expert:  Nora replied 11 months ago.

Hi,

I have not been able to make a match to the hallmarks on these for you. I will opt out here at no additional charge to you and open your question to all the experts again. You do not need to re-post the question. If someone knows the answer, they will respond to you here.

I do hope you find the information that you seek.

Ok Nora well thank you very much for your assistance none the less and all the best
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Nora do have any idea how to place the items. I'm finding it very difficult to find any other flasks or memorabilia with the green diamond background and red circle.

Hello! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please know that I cannot accept any requests for "live conversations" such as phone calls. I must research up-to-date data to give the most accurate answer.

Sometimes my customers click the wrong button when they really do not want a "live conversation." Please be careful what choices you click on.

It is very difficult to take photos of worn silver marks. Please sketch the marks and take photos of the sketches.

I look forward to seeing your sketches.

Kind regards,

Doris
