European Tea Strainer


#1

Hi,
Can anyone help me with these marks on a tea strainer of continental silver please - hope they’re not too blurred. They are of a bear, a ‘G’ below a crown and to the left an ‘88’ below a crown
Germany mabye?
Thanks in advance
John

I believe the crowned G mark was used by Georg Roth & Company, Hanau, Germany (end of the 19th century).
The other marks are psuedo marks.
