Dogs Head Mark
by: Anonymous

Very interesting! I also have a gold ring with a left facing dog with the letter P on the left and what appears to be a number 4 on the right, all in a lozenge shape. I was told that the ring was purchased second hand from a shop near Waterloo Station, London, and a jeweler told me that it came from continental Europe, he thought France or Belgium.

Austria hallmark
by: Anonymous

I too have a bracelet with a left facing dog (1867-1922) with a number 4 on the right of the dog and letter A on the left. From research that I have been doing, the 4 stands for .750 and the letter A represents Vienna. My bracelet has another hallmark, on the clasp...B&C. I would like to know if anyone has an idea who the maker is.

Gold hallmark
by: Anonymous

Hi, I have a gold bracelet, with a gold heart locket, that has the exact same hallmarks; a left facing dog's head (ears up), with a 4 and A, in a cartouche. It is also marked B & F. This mark is in 3 places on the locket and clasp. There is also a cartouche, inside the locket that has J,K in an oval.
You believe it is Austro Hungarian?

dog head 14 ct cameo
by: Anonymous

Hi,
I'm from Hungary and I'm totally sure this is a dog head. facing left. letter and number on the sides.
It was the standard mark for 14 carat gold between 1867 and 1937 in the Austro-Hungarian empire.
Hope it helps,

Austro-Hungarian .585 (14K)
by: Chris

According to my research it is an Austro-Hungarian hallmark for .585 (14K) gold, as noted, with date range, by an earlier and generous poster. I learned this when researching a magnificent watch fob that a friend sold to me. The A mark may be a shortened version of the gold mark as my piece has those in several other spots on various components of the piece, as well as a two-letter maker's mark in one spot.

Have the same hallmark...
by: Anonymous

I suspect the previous poster was correct...it is very similar to the Austria - Hungary silver standard mark in the middle of this page.

Likely this a gold standard mark...i have the exact same mark on a bracelet (dog's head facing left with A 4). The maker on the bracelet is B & F.


If I find anything out I will post it. Maybe the previous poster has a reference link they can post here corroborating the Austrian -Hungarian connection?

German Marks
by: Anonymous

As Marie mentioned that the marks might be of German origin, I would just like to add, that Germany like the USA, does not have a hallmarking system that is overseen by an independent body. Instead manufacturers stamp the marks on the objects themselves.

18kt french gold standard
by: Bridgette

ummmh.... is it a dog, a horse, or a pig? I know from 1912 a dog's head is the French hallmark used as the mark for platinum and the French law requires all gold jewelry to have a minimum purity of 18 karat.

A - Paris City Mark?
by: Kate

I have a French Antique Gold Bracelet which also has a strange looking hallmark, a boars head mark and the letter A next to it. I was informed this is a French hallmark and the letter A is the city mark for Paris.
kind regards
Kate
