Hello and welcome! Thank you for requesting me.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.
If you see a rate me message and I have not given you an answer With the value you are not to rate anything.
Again, ignore any rate me messages until you see my answer with the value.
It is very difficult to assess items that I cannot see.
Please send me photos.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the markings.
If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the mark and take a photo of the sketch.
