Help identifying silver basket please


Hi there, can anyone help with these hallmarks please? I’m thinking the BM relates to Berthold Muller/Hanau, but the lowercase n suggests it’s older than that? Also I can’t find anything that looks like the strawberry on the far left and I can’t even begin to guess what the figure second from left is.

Any help much appreciated, thanks!

Berthold Muller / Hanau is exactly right. The “n” is the mark of Neresheimer, the makers. We also see a Chester import mark for 1907. Hanau marks tended to be pretty variable which is probably why you can’t find this exact combination.

Thank you so much Phil!
