Is this an elephant?

Trying to identify these hallmarks. The one on the left looks to me like an elephant but I can’t find anything similar. Also struggling with the one that looks like a rooster. Any help would be very welcome. Thanks

This doesn’t look like any silver mark which I have seen before so it’s most probably an electroplater’s mark - and these are not well documented. I couldn’t even suggest a country of origin.


Thanks v much for this. Glad it’s not just me who is stumped. I know Gainsford in Sheffield used an elephant but it looks very different from this one.
