Hi,

Is there anyone here who knows their French Makers Hallmarks? Judging from the coffeepot it looks like it is from the 1850s. There is a hammer or something between a L and M. Just above it is a crescent moon. There are other french hallmarks but I just want to know who made it.

The maker is Louis Manant, a Parisian manufacturer of hollowware. He registered this mark in 1829 and re-registered it in 1865, so your 1850 date sounds exactly right. How about a picture of the coffeepot and some more information about it?
