Hello,My name is ***** ***** I would love to help.Please use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures of the mark on the back of one piece. Check random other pieces to make sure they are all the same mark. Also add one photo of one piece so that I can see the pattern, a serving fork, for example.
Can you add photos of these marks that you describe? There are none here if you tried. The feature works best if you add one, hit send, then do the next.
I would really love to see photos. I can tell you an owl indicates a French import mark. I have added a photo of the French import mark.
The other marks will really help in determining age, assay , possible maker and value.
Yes, I am , two so far.
Got the pictures, thanks.
This will take a while as you know marks can be elusive.
No need to sit by the computer, you will get an email when I finally have an answer for you.
I am unable to find a match for this mark. I will say that the set is French, blades made by Grand Duc of France (the owl is the Grand Duc Owl) and the set made by another French Company (not uncommon). French sterling marks ALWAYS have a diamond shaped mark, so my opinion is that this is silver plated flatware.
I will opt-out and allow another expert to answer and fill in the blanks if they can. They will see our conversation and your photos. I am not able to respond once I opt-out. Good luck!
