Has Dr.Löw anything to do with silver? - h.cx - Hallmarks Forum
Hi,
We have been in Budapest - and as a souvenir from that City and all the cakes we ate, we bought a cake knife - in an antique shop
It has a mark: ′Dr.Löw′ and a number: ′90′ - please look at the attached picture.
I can′t find any references to that mark - can you help me?
Material and maybe origin.

Kind regard and a hopefully thanks in advance
Lisbeth

The mark reads Dr. LOB which is the makers mark for the German silverplate manufacturing company of Dr.LOB & Co of Nurnberg.
The number 90 relates to the thickness of silver plating deposited on the underlying base metal and was used in Germany, The Netherlands and France. It is often thought to represent solid 90% silver but this is not the case for European silverware...however the number 90 is used in this manner in some Asian countries.
To find out more about the silverplate numbering in Europe see here:
