Antique Serving Silver, Only Hallmark is "13"

Hello,
We have a piece of silver, with the only hallmark saying 13, possibly a bone handle.
Can anyone help identifying it?
Here are the links (I couldn’t upload…):

Hi there,

The 13 indicates the purity of the silver…it is for 13/16 Lothig, which is about 81% silver. I think a few European countries used it, I know Austro-Hungarian Empire did.

Hope this helps,

Ben
