Mystery 800 Silver Mark, any guesses as to country of origin?

Pleasant large modern tongs which don’t give much hint to their origin. Tarnished and polished surface and flex consistent with 800 silver. Faintly marked on the outside of both halves of the tongs “800 PA 142” plus a symbol that resembles a rook from the chessboard. I am familiar with most common silver marks, but have never seen this before. Does anyone have any idea what country this comes from or what it means? Educated guesses welcome.

Best pics I can take:

Welcome to this forum, Nadine, and thank you for your recent contributions.

Your mystery mark is Italian and is that of D’Agostino Gaetano of Palermo. See here.


Thank you very much. I don’t know why I didn’t think of Italy. The lozenge mark was so faint, I suppose.
