I think the name is BOUMAN. There are many goldsmith and jewelleries in Holland with this name. Unusually ist the fineness of 830 for the Netherlands. The fineness should be 835 or 833 up to 1953. Maybe it was an item for export? It can be the reason for missing the hallmark.

Thanks very much for that info.
It would explain the missing halfmoon and crown for Germany.

Thanks

@ Andy H

I have asked my friends in Holland (Assay office) and they are sure the makers mark is/was no registered mark of Holland.
