Can anyone supply information about this waxjack, which i think is from around 1880. It´s silver, but i don´t know the hallmarks.

Hi Hartmut,

As the fineness mark is shown in millesimal...ie 800 rather than earlier systems(loth), I agree that the piece is most likely made somewhere between 1880 and 1910. I suspect it may be a Hanau piece, with the top mark possibly being a poorly struck crescent and crown. The other mark looks like either the letter n, m or w in a circle. the font looks correct for Neresheimer but his were all in shield shaped cartouches and yours appears to be a circle.

Also you refer to the piece as a waxjack. These were popular in the 18th C and so rather strange to see one so late. In saying that, Hanau silversmiths were renowned for making ″new″ antiques. Could you please show a picture of the whole piece?

thanks,
Steve
