Hi all

Any info would be appreciated. Was given this looks like a cake server. I wondered where its from and if its worth anything. I can make out a hallmark that looks like a key followed by a lion? then a blokes head. also can make out the number 834

Hi Charlie,
Thanks for joining us on silver-collector.com.
Your item certainly looks like a cake server to me, but it would help if you could take a close up photograph of the marks so that we could give you an idea of age.

Best regards
Daniel Franks

german or dutch cake slicer - made about 1900 in the best case - looks like " HANAU" silver- rather often with so called fantasy hallmarks imitating french marks

I think it may be a little rash to call them faux marks without a better picture! We really need better pics to be sure.
