Hello,

I have quite a few pieces of Christofle faltware of the Rubans pattern. I am having trouble identifying the Hallmarks on the pattern.
On the left side of each piece is an O and a C with what appears to be a horses head between the letters. On the right side of a each piece is another O and a C with a scales situated between the letters. There are 4 stars above the scales.
All what I have have these hallmarks with the following additional exceptions:
A 13" soup ladle had what appears to be a turtle under the scales.
A 10" serving spoon had what appears to be a turtle under the scales.
An 8 3/8" fork has the numbers 90 under the scales with what appears to be a turtle under the numbers.
An 8 1/4" soup spoon has the numbers 90 under the scales with what appears to be a horses head under the numbers.
A 5 5/8" desert spoon has the numbers 18 under the scales with waht appears to be a fish under the numbers.

I would greatly appreciate if someone could please tell me what all this means?

Thanks in advance,
LGM
