1693 Silver tea strainer help with hallmark ID

Hello, I am trying to help an elderly hungarian friend identify this silver tea strainer that has been in his family for generations. The date of 1693 is in the bowl of the spoon and on the back are 3 hall mark stamps in a line. I have tried the standard hallmark ID sites but nothing goes back that far. (329 years is a long time ago) Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike

It’s Hanau silver from the turn of the 19th/20th century. By Neresheimer & Sohne or Neresheimer & Co.
