Help with mark on spoon - DVNS with crossed swords

Does anyone recognize this mark? It looks like DVNS and two crossed swords. Also, can anyone tell what this spoon is made of? It doesn’t quite look like sterling or pewter.

Thank you in advance!

I’m going to guess this is silver-plated, barring any marks saying otherwise. That DVNS is likely a maker’s mark, but unfortunately I have no idea who it is. It’d be helpful if there were other markings that might at least narrow it down to a specific country.

I have a similar hallmark and am largely striking out on identifying it.

The mark looks very old, but the pattern is spare and reminiscent of Scandinavian design.
