I think the bottom picture is the Chinese character for Longevity.

Thank you yes it is the chinese symbol for longevity. So no help with the hallmarks?

Just found this picture in my files today.

Thank you very much. Trying to figure out what that said was driving me nuts.

Is there anyway to date this from the hallmarks? I see alot of the things marked Wai Kee don’t seem to have any hallmarks.

So do you think its silver i have not got a clue

Since it’s marked Sterling on the back, I’d say yes, it is Sterling Silver (92.5% pure).
