ITALIAN HALLMARKING SYSTEM

The law 5 February 1934 n. 305 introduced uniformity in the shape of Italian silversmith's marks.
The new mark identifying the silversmith consisted of a lozenge containing:
number: corresponding to the number identifying the silversmith
'fascio': fascist party symbol
two letters: initials of the Province
The lozenge was coupled to an oval containing the purity degree 800 or 925 per thousand.
The Law 26 October 1944 n. 313 (Decreto Legislativo Luogotenenziale 26 Ottobre 1944 n. 313) ordered the elimination of the 'fascio' (symbol of 'fascism') maintaining into the lozenge only the number (identification of the silversmith) and the two letters (initials of the Province).
The Laws 30 January 1968 (Legge 30 gennaio 1968 n. 46) and 30 December 1970 n. 1496 (D.P.R. 30 Dicembre 1970 n. 1496) introduced new hallmarks for silver and precious metals. The mark was modified to a polygonal shape and a star was added on the left. Numbers and Province letter were maintained.
Purity degree 925, 835 and 800 per thousand were allowed and inscribed into an oval outlined mark.
This system is still in use in present days.

mark in use from 1934 to 1944 mark in use from 1944 to 1970 mark in use from 1970 to present days

Questa pagina è stata realizzata nell'ambito di un progetto che ha l'obiettivo di pubblicare l'elenco, provincia per provincia, dei marchi e punzoni di garanzia usati nell'argenteria italiana del XX secolo (nella prima fase, limitatamente alle ditte che hanno iniziato l'attività prima del 1971).
Se sei in possesso di un vecchio annuario delle ditte orafe o possiedi comunque informazioni utili per la pubblicazione, puoi dare il tuo contributo alla realizzazione del progetto contattando via mail Giorgio Busetto clicca qui
