I do know this mark and I have added a photo of it to confirm.

This is the mark of Wong Lee International that was added to

faux antique modern decorational items made in China.

The shield and 1895 are an intended fake mark with some variations. These items began to show up in the mid

1990's and made it to the antique scene (auctions, estates, consignment stores) around 2004.

This item has a current value of $40 to $60 retail.
