Mexico, China and Hong Kong - Silver Marks

Wednesday, May 14, 2008 | Printer Friendly Printer Friendly

Mexican silver hallmarks known today are found on pieces made from the 1860s. The Mexican Eagle found on many 1940s – 1970s silver jewelry were used to signify Registration or Tax Paid. Mexican silver antiques made during 1860s – 1930s bear only the words “Sterling” or “Silver”. The majority of Mexican silver antiques and jewelry were made with at least 925 silver content. The Chinese people believed that silver is a material that belongs to the Deities or Gods and as such should not be disturbed. And so silver antique production from China, was for utilitarian items mostly destined for use at religious ceremonies. Hong Kong, on the other hand, had many Chinese silversmiths set up shop in imitation of the British that had colonized the region at that time. Most of this activity is around the 1890s – 1930s, and is today in a state of increase especially on China’s mainland.

I have 2 rather large stores in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. We were desperate to reduce cleaning time, but our stores need to look great at all times. Wipease® products made cleaning so quick and easy and an answer to my prayers! Thanks Wipease team.

INCREDIBLE...........please use my testimonial! The ease of using your product for silver is TERRIFIC. And then, after I rinsed and dried the kiddush cups and silverware I was AMAZED at how bright and shiny they were. I never get a finish like that with 'the pink stuff' or the thick liquid stuff. FABULOUS PRODUCT! I'm telling everyone I know. Pesach is hard enough (and so is maintaining silver) but this product is wonderful!

Just wanted you to know.....

I've been using the Fruity Wipes as hand wipes for my daughter and to clean the snack tray of her stroller when we're out in public, they have been a real blessing. Thank you for providing an alternative to chemical wipes.

Have a great day,


Wipease metal wipes are a truly wonderful product! I have used several other brands of metal wipes and nothing works as well as Wipease. There is no strong bad odor and they take the tarnish off my brass and silver extremely easily. I highly recommend this product! With my last order I received a sample of the individually wrapped metal wipes, which is a wonderful idea, as they will not dry out as they can do in the container if one is not careful to keep it tightly covered. I plan to order the individually wrapped wipes in the future.
