Hi !

I was wondering about something.

I bought this very nice sterling silver handbag from an auction, actually just today.

It's all in silver (even the bag part), weighs 210 grams and 12,5 x 12,5 cm, flawless and and the marks say:
PK, then something that is hard to see, then 925 and a £ mark and on the inside it's engraved 11716 Bogo.

It is suppose to be Art Deco from 1920s something.

Does anyone know?

biggrin and I think its very, very pretty

Welcome to the Forums.

It does look like a nice bag, regardless. I'm not sure how old it is; most similar bags seem to date from the 1920's or 30's. A picture of the marks might help us pin down the place of origin. I'm guessing it is a European item.

...and yes, probably it's English as it has a £ mark.

The English pound sign was also used by several American makers, so that is no assurance; without a picture it's an open question.

Hi Maria,

Lovely bag and can tell you were delighted to get it!

Enjoy your sweet bag (love the multiple compartments)! If you can, post pictures of the marks, someone can probably ID it for you, doubt very much that it's English, given the lack of British hallmarks.

I can't, for some reason, see the picture on my home computer. However, the "L" pound mark was used by the LaPierre silversmiths in Newark. (Oddly, I don't think it was ever used on English silver, but I could be wrong). I know that Unger in Newark did lots of silver "chain purses" or "mesh bags" and thus LaPierre, who specialized in novelties, would be logical.
