Two sets of hallmarks


This item has two sets of hallmarks.
The ones on the top are small and look like this.

I think these are Swedish import marks from the 20th century. Is this correct?
It looks older than that though.

The marks on the bottom are bigger. They look like this.

I have never seen such marks before. Are they silver hallmarks?

Do you think it is made of silver or some other material?

Your first picture definitely seems to show the Swedish import mark. This should guarantee the silver standard - 800, I believe.

Your other picture shows what look like 17th century French silver marks (see here). However they seem to be far too sharp to be that old so I suspect that they may have been deliberately reproduced to give the impression of genuine marks.


Interesting, thanks a lot Phil!
