I have a six inch candle holder with attached snuffer. There are two marks on the removable collar: one appears to be thick vertical cross with a smaller diagonal cross behind; the second is worn but may have been a figurehead.

Any suggestions as to where I can look?

Welcome to the forum.

Existing SSF members are reluctant to respond until you first do some sharing about yourself and your interests in silver and in particular the item being asked about. It would be best if you would start by reading the top of this page where it says Please Read Before You Post and then add the requested information to your posting

SSF is just a small group of people who enjoy discussing silver and it is good form to introduce yourself to the group. Please let us know a little more about your general interest in silver and your interest in learning more about your item.

Please also post some nice clear photos of the silver and its markings. Please post properly sized the images and post using the SSF image tags ( [img] [/img]). Be sure to follow the directions about How to Post Photos. Everything you need to know about posting photos is explained in this link.
