Silver and Flatware/Norwegian Silverware

Question
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,
Sondra

Answer
Hello.

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 www.925-1000.com for info about Norwegian silver but if you have not, review what's there. Beyond that, I'm afraid I'll be no help.

Sorry.

Best wishes,

Jim
