Identifying German Hallmark

Hi, This is a 6pc Tea & Coffee Set that only has the crescent moon, with Crown & 800… I need help trying to identify who and possibly time frame…Thanks

1886 was the year that half moon and crown was taken into use. That gives a max age of your silver.
So what we have is style.
It has a totch of rococo - new rococo - the ornamentation
The long lines are anything but rococo.

There is no trace of jugend in it.
I dont think that anyane would make this after jugend. (i.e. between ww1 and ww2)

My conclusion is somewhere between 1890 and 1910.
