Asian hallmarked jump wings
Marty Reynolds sent me this photo of a jump wing with some kind of Asian hallmark. I have no clue, but maybe there’s someone who knows more about this, or who can at least translate what it says in English?
Any help on this is appreciated!
The upper three characters in the diamond is “交通路” (“Traffic Road” in English. Old Chinese characters are read from right to left), it’s a old street in Hankou (汉口) City, Wuhan (武汉) Province.
As for the rest, I can’t read them clearly, but I believe they are “漢老鳳祥” (“汉老凤祥” in simplified Chinese). “漢“ means “汉口”, the place where it came from, “老鳳祥” (lao feng xiang) is a famous silverware shop in China which has a long history started from 1848.
Therefore, in my opinion, this badge may be a unofficial copy which was made in China, someone entrusted a copy work to this silverware shop, quite interestion.
Hi, thanks for your expertise! Sorry I didn’t think of asking you guys straight away, I should have known.
