A little info on the AMERIKANER hallmark.
In a nutshell, Americakaner is the same as DOUBLE. This was a process of double plating an item which was created during the Austrian Empire period (or prior to 1865) and assured an item a lifetime glow and rust free. It was used because pure gold was becoming so scarce due to fine metals needed for war efforts throughout Europe.
Around the time of the US Civil war an American technique was created which was the same as the 'doo blay' of Europe and it actually was then duplicated in Europe.
The German and Austrian jewelry which utilized this technique had it stamped with the name 'AMERIKANER or Amerikanter' and the 'AD' represented 'Auch (attention) Double (doo blay)' This was to demonstrate that the item was a patented mark ..'attention' usually referred to the command for no duplication. Items created with this process were basically of 9K or 333 to 375/1000 gold.
They could be higher. Base material was silver with copper which allowed for the rose gold colour. Double is an outstanding hallmark...as the same Amerikaner and holds 35/000 micro edition as upheld by the world gold standard. It ceased to be at the beginning of the First World War.

ALLERGIES?? SMOKE?? PETS??
I do my part on being 'GREEN'
I recycle everything possible and driving my husband crazy! We DO NOT claim to be an allergy free home. 90% of the items I sell are from other homes, auctions, estate sales. Have no idea what kind of homes they are coming from. We have a wood fireplace, smoke and we have rescued a pitiful, but gorgeous homeless kitten/cat. (now 2) We (including the cat) are very clean and neat. But, we are 'NOT' 100% allergy or smoke free and neither are the consignment items.
Sorry! If you have 'allergies' Please DO NOT BID!
