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.

My Silver has never looked so good. It was so much of a bother to polish the silver, I would leave beautiful pieces in boxes rather than have them out. With Wipease® Silver, Chrome & Copper, it is just so easy.

This product works so well. My customers have only one word for it.. WOW! There is no longer an excuse that cleaning silver takes long and it's messy. Wipease® Silver, Chrome & Copper takes the mess and the fuss out of polishing the silver. It is affordable and just so easy to use. My customers love it.

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.
