Designer Ring
by: Anonymous

Hi Aubrey

thanks for writing in. Yes, these are interesting marks. I have a feeling the F letter might in fact be a "P" and part of the letter has rubbed off, just like what's happened to the number eight. What do you think?

PP (not in a shield) similar style, is the maker's mark:

Carl Paul (or Poul) PETERSEN (b.1895 - d.1977) Silversmith & Designer, Montreal, Canada - ca 1920s - 1960s.

If you would like me to research this mark further send in another image of the front of the ring to


could you also provide as much info as possible about how & where you can across it.

best wishes
