Hi , a colleague asked me if I could help him find out more about this piece. I'd be confident identifying Sterling silver but this is a bit outside my comfort zone. It weighs 168 grams and has prolific repousse decoration around the side. I am assuming the 84 is an mark for the purity, the rest I unable to decipher. Any comments attributing origin, makers mark, etc would be most welcome.

Thanks Gerry

Ok, with a little research I have found out this is Persian or more accurately Iranian. The 84 stands for .875 purity. The other marks are in Farsi and are the town and maker's mark. If anyone knows Farsi out there and can translate these marks, I'd be grateful. Gerry.
