Description

Set of 6 Antique 800 silver dining forks.
All forks have 3 different silver marks on them. Those marks can tell us a story about those items.

First silver mark shows the name of the silversmith:

Five forks are marked: B Hempel or WH - this is the silver mark for Hempel, Bracia or Hembel brothers 1899-1915.

The size of each of those five forks is 8 ¼”

The 6th fork marked: M.P. which belongs to Mojzsez Princenthal 1908-1915.

This fork is ¼” longer, but has the exact same design as the other five.

Second silver mark was placed in Warsaw, Poland after 1920.

There is a hallmark: women head on kerchief, number 3 = silver fineness .800 and town letter W=Warsaw silver mark.

Warsaw was under Russian rule until the end of WW I in 1918. Russian marks were used until 1920.

Third silver mark was placed in Moscow region, Russia in 1927-1954.

Looks like those forks were brought from Poland after WW II and marked in Russia again: 800, Worker head with hammer with assay mark – Greek letter in oval (Moscow region).

All forks are in pretty good condition, just regular signs of wear for the pieces this age. They were rarely used in our house. We have them in our family for more than 60 years.
Total weight for 6 pieces – 428g
