Does anyone know the origin of this box, please?
Prata is Portuguese for silver but Portugal and Brazil have fairly well defined marking systems which don’t appear in your picture.
The box is actually in Brazil, but I found the marking very peculiar. The 572 5.P reminded me something of the Italian marking, but it isn’t either. I didn’t know that 833 silver was only Brazilian and Portuguese. Thank you very much Phil and an incredible 2024 for you and your family.
According to this list 833 silver is/was produced in Portugal, Netherlands, Denmark and Norway. I only mentioned Portugal and Brazil because they are major Portuguese speaking countries.
Ah yes, I understand Phil. Thank you very much for the list, I found it very useful!
