I am wondering what this set of markings means in the attached photo.
H Schaper is my great grandfather and a prolific jeweler and silversmith in the late 1800’s. His shop was in Berlin, Germany.
The other makers mark is KOCH & BERGFELD. And the other is German 800 silver.
I am assuming the number is some sort of serial number.
My question is who exactly made the item. Is H Schaper the designer and Koch & Bergfeld the manufacturer?
I have other pieces with the H Schaper stamp without the Koch Bergfeld mark.
Any info would be greatly appreciated
