In order to assess this set,I will need to see pictures of the set and the marks. You can add photos by using the paper clip icon in the box where you type back to me (best done on a desktop computer). You can also email pictures to***@******.*** and put 'forCustomerin antiques' in the subject line so that they will get forwarded to me. This way takes a little longer.

These are the pictures I was able to take

You did a wonderful job attaching the photos. The close ups of the marks are too blurry, though. It would be best to not bring the item so close to the camera for the picture. Let it be far away but in focus and I can crop in on that area on my end.
