It might be F-D-E. I've thought of this in many different ways and I think it might be German in background. It could be for Ferdinand I, King of Bulgaria. Ferdinand was on the throne in 1900, and he was born a German Prince. The initials could stand for "Ferdinand die erste" in German which translates to "Ferdinand the first."

Hello to all. I am hoping that someone will recognize this monogram and be able to help me identify it or point me in the right direction.

I believe it is the French Royal Crown. It is on a match box that is marked "Tonnel Paris". I can't find too much on Tonnel Paris but what little I did find seems to be of high quality. I just purchased the box so would like to know more about it.

Thank you in advance for any help or advise.

Hello to all. I looked thru all the cyphers at wiki. A lot of work has gone into that, you did a great job.

I purchased a match safe on ebay last night. I do not have the item in had yet. But I enjoy researching my purchases.

The case has what looks to me as a Royal Cypher but I am unable to identify it.

Any help is appreciated, even if I knew the Cyphers country it would be a start.

The case was sold/made? in Paris as it contains the markings: Tonnel - Paris, What little I can find on that company is that they made very high end items.

At first I thought the initials were M B. I can definitely make out the M however on closer inspection it may be M and a 3?

Hello. This item looks familiar. Can you produce a better quality photograph or read the letters as they are embossed? Thank you, Lady G

Thank you Lady G. for your quick reply. Perhaps I am jumping the gun a bit as I have not received the item. I purchased it online. But I really enjoy researching the fine items I purchase.

If I had to guess without the item in hand I would say the initials are M and B. I can clearly make out the M but the B may be a bit of a stretch.

As soon as the item arrives I will post better pictures.

Again, Thank you

You are most welcome. Please let me know when the item arrives? Perhaps then I can have a better answer for you. The crown looks very familiar and the definite letters will help to identify it. Thank you, Lady G

Research on a painting that may have a Royal Connection

Good Afternoon! I am a new member, as of five minutes ago! I have a new painting in my collection that is of a Souliote/Khlept fighter from the Epirus area( pants). I have reason to believe that this painting may be connected to a member of a royal household, as it has a cornet that has been painted in the upper left over the letter "M" and 1762. I believe either that the 1762 is an inventory number or that it is connected to the Souliote Victory over the Ottmans in 1762.
I believe that King Othon commissioned some paintings when he started the Royal Athens School of Art. My questions: Did King Othon have a personal art collection and if so did he take that to Bamberg when he left Greece?
I have come across one painting that came from a sale in 1878. Was there an estate sale or auction in that year? Did Queen Amalia have an estate? Has anyone seen a monogram of the letter M with a six point crown? I also have photographs of this painting. I would love to show them, in case anyone can identify who the sitter is. I would gladly email this photos to any member that may be able to help! I truly would appreciate any insight that you may be able to provide and I would be forever thankful! Stephen.

MJ Monogram 1896-1913

Hello Lady G and all. I now have the case in hand.

First of all let me apologize for posting twice. I first posted in a different thread then found this thread which is much more appropriate.

I have photographed the monogram and highlighted the initials. The case has french hallmarks and French makers mark. The makers mark is A G with a standing lion between the letters. My research shows that this is the makers mark for Alphonse Gombert and was registered between 1896 - 1913.

I am guessing the second letter is a J but open to suggestions. I am still trying to identify the crown.

Here are the pics:

Monogram - CC? CD? C? CX?

Hello, I'm another newbie with another unknown monogram/cypher! Can any of you experts help me, please?

I collect porcelain & I've just bought a couple of old plates with this monogram on, but I'm having trouble identifying it. Obviously it's the crown that makes me think it could have a royal/aristocratic connection.

The painter's initials on the backs of the plates look early 18th century, but the seller thinks they're 19th.

Either way, identifying the monogram would be a start to finding out something about their history. I'd be extremely grateful for any pointers - many thanks for your help.

Serena

Serena, it might be more easily recognized by it's pattern. I'm assuming this is a maker's mark.

Thanks for such quick replies :)

Kitty: the monogram is on the front of the plate, in the middle (see pic below). The painter's / potter's initials on the back are PAK, which usually signifies a particular delft factory in the early 1700s (though these initials were undoubtedly copied/reused at some point). There's no other "maker's mark", unless of course the monogram is in fact a factory fancy done for show / demonstration - which is always possible.

It's difficult to see in this pic, but it's all hand painted - not transfer etc. as many were later. The plate is fluted, though the pattern hides this.



Moonmaiden23: if that turned out to be the case I'd faint on the spot - I just liked the intricate paintwork, & thought the monogram interesting! But yes, much obliged for the check. Who knows!

Serena

Coat of Arms help.... PLEASE!

Can anyone out there help me please... I recently bought a tapestry with a coat of arms. I was told that it once belonged to a relation of the Queen.. although I can find nothing to substantiate that. Can anyone help me to identify who the coat of arms is for? A family name perhaps? It is a white cross on a black shield, on a gold/yellow shield. Surmounted by a horse with ermine heraldic icons.

Can't help you, but it looks like a French design. It looks more like a church banner than a personal coat of arms. It is beautiful.

While I do agree that it looks like a church banner.. looks can be deceiving. The Cross Flory (the symbol in the middle) means "One who has conquered". It would be unusual (I would think) for a church banner to carry this meaning.

With the horse on top, it appears to be some sort of arms or family crest, rather than a church banner, and might be French in origin.. But that is just my opinion.

Regardless of origin, it truly is a wonderful piece
