Monogram on silver beaker

Hello there,

I have recently joined these forums and was hoping somebody could offer some assistance.

Attached is a monogram on a silver beaker I recently purchased. It is English with a London hallmark for 1933.

Is the engraving indeed a personal monogram? I am unable to decipher the ornate lettering and I cannot identify the crown. I assume the foliage and wheat are also if some significance.

Many thanks and best wishes

It's nothing I recognise, I'm afraid. I think you probably need an expert in the area. Maybe the assay office where the silver hallmarks were registered might be able to point you in the right direction. Good luck!

The crown looks like it might be Ethiopian, and the lettering could be Ge'ez script. I've tracked down the monogram of Emperor Haile Selassie and there are similarities, but not a match.

What a great find.

Following your lead, I found an Ethiopian medal that has a similar crown to the one on the silver beaker.

Thanks for the prompt reply. I may try to contact the maker as they are still in operation.
Happy New Year!

Thank you for this! I would never have guessed Ethiopia. Some extra research for me! Happy New Year.

Cypher is please.

Good day.
I'm new to the forum but have a quick introduction on the newcomers thread.
However, I joined up as I often find copper cookware with cypher & monogram inscriptions.

Any help with this one would be greatly appreciated 🙏

All the best, Steve

Victoria & Albert ?

It is almost identical to the monogram of the Dutch King, here on a button worn on uniforms of his palace staff: https://www.paleisamsterdam.nl/media....width-500.jpg

Many thanks Duc_et_Pair.
I think you are right. Ideal!
I have found the exact mark searching for "Victoria and Albert cypher"

Thanks for your suggestion.

All the best, Steve

It are most likely heraldic rank crowns:

The first one is the heraldic rank crown of a British Earl.

The second is the heraldic rank crown of a Continental Count (Germany, the Low Countries, Austria).

The third one is the heraldic rank crown of a baron in Spain and Portugal.

Unknown royal monogram

Hi !

Can anyone identify this very old monogram? this cypher appears on a old lock which was made in XVII or XVII centuries...

Could this be the dual cypher of Archduke Albert of Austria and Infanta Isabella of Spain who were sovereigns of the Spanish Netherlands ca. 1600??

thanks a lot!!!

It is an intriguing mystery! Do I see two "C" s back-to-back with interlocking curves? Good luck solving this!
