I am looking for information on a 2200 plus hallmarked

Customer Question
I am looking for...

I am looking for information on a 2200 plus hallmarked filled sterling silver teddy bear (7 inches tall) and I can't read the silver stamps (can read the 925) also i can see a 13/100 hand written (as if it was only 13 of 100 in the edition) also labeled with country artist

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

The silver teddy bear has a gold looking chain with a monocle , and he is wearing a vest with gold looking buttons ... black glass eyes

I haven't gotten any information about the piece yet ... are we still looking this up?
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 1 month ago

Hi,

Thank you for the images. My apologies for the delay, I was away from the office.

If you could please send a clear, in-focus, extreme close-up of the cross-shaped mark, that will be helpful. When I zoom the photo it becomes pixelated.

It is the best image we can get ... I see CA 925 and an Anchor ... nothing in the Plus symbol
Antique Expert: Nora, Expert in Fine and Decorative Arts: Renaissance through Contemporary replied 1 month ago

There are actually 5 faint letters in the cross symbol that I can see in the image, but when I zoom it pixelates the image.
