European/Hanau (?) Silver, need help.
I need help! Silver is my expertise, but not European silver. I have three items I have tirelessly tried to identify. The markings are unfamiliar and vague, but I am sure this is European-grade (800) silver. Before anyone asks for photos of the stamps, I have tried repeatedly but they will not photograph. If needed I will gladly sketch them and photo that. This is what I have:
1). A 3-prong fork with the center tine much longer, like a trident. At the prong end of stem, but before the tines, is a "medallion" of sorts with a scene of a seated man playing a small harp or lyre, a man in a Dutch (?) cap and a cane over his arm standing in front of the seated man, and a small child seated at the standing man's feet. All three appear to be in front of a house or cottage. On the stem end is a man standing with a yoke across his shoulders supporting two pails suspended by ropes. It is 7 3/8" and stamped verso on the center prong with a crown (similar to German stamps), an elongated hexagon with "HH" inside it, and then "90".
2). A spoon with an open barley twist stem. The bowl is repouse'd with figures of a woman heavily gowned and cloaked standing next to a heavily robed man carrying a horn over his back. The end of the stem is topped with what appears to be a two-masted Viking ship. The bowl is stamped verso with what looks like an elongated Maltese Cross, a raised-wing swan (not the swan seen in French wares) sitting atop what is probably a shield of sorts, and the only letter that is clear is "V". It is 6" long.
And 3). a salt spoon with a woman supporting a yoke across her shoulders with two pails. It appears to stamped "0090" in a very elongated octagon on the back of the stem. It is 3" long.
Any ideas? I've tried off and on for several years and have simply given up.
