I show a pair of dutch candlesticks. After research I can tell that if you look at the photo marks included, the maker's mark above is from the factory Voorschoten.
(little place in the S/W from Holland.

The mark down under at the left is:
silver mark (second (2)alloy).

The mark down under in the middle is:
Control Hallmark : Minerva head with the letter C in the helmet.
Office hallmark from Den Haag.

The mark down under at the right side is:
the year (letter i) stands for 1943.

It's nice to research silver and hopefully
I gave the right information?

Not a American silver object, but perhaps you find a example about at the other side of the ocean also nice?.

Greetings Silverhunter.

Very nice - and always interesting to see pieces of silver produced in Europe during the Second World War.

Thanks for reaction FWG, I hope you all had a nice holiday.
I was surprised when I found these stamps at the candlesticks and little proud to give information about dutch silver after own research.
Short question: Is it possible to react at
other topics from other members in area's outside new members post forums?
Because sometimes I read interesting topics and want to react?
Ofcourse without placing stupid questions and stories from my side :-)
I've readed your topic about Tibetan silverware.(interesting).
I've to close down, all the best!
