Silver and Flatware/Norwegian Silverware


Hello Mr. Stringer,
I have acquired quite a few pieces of Norwegian Silverware/Serving Utensils, most of which are marked 830 S, 925. I have been able to obtain some information as to maker and pattern via the internet but there are so many pieces I simply cannot find information on. For instance, M.Otsby on the serving spoon but as far as I can find Otsby makes silver jewlery only. If I send pics of the pieces and the markings, would you be able to help me, or tell me where I could find more information?
If you are interested I can send photos.
Thank you,


Sorry to have taken so long to reply. I wanted to see what I had in the way of references for Norwegian silver and I am sorry to say that pickings are slim! You probably have already checked out for info about Norwegian silver but if you have not, review what's there. Beyond that, I'm afraid I'll be no help.


Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
