Please help in identifying these bowls. are they french?


I recently bought pair of bowls, measuring 10" in diameter, and would like to know where they are from. Are the man and woman french? Are they old? Are they valuable? I paid £20 for them.
I’ve tried my best to take a few photos of the hallmarks.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
as much as possible about them.



the items were made in hanau in german about 1900 ( 800 silver finness ) - and the bear so called fantasy marks - hope i could help
p.s. very nice items indeed


many thanks for that information. do you have any idea what they are worth?


depends on the diameter , the weight and the condition ?

i would say 150 - 200 pounds
