[01-2736]

I've had a few things that I have questions about sitting on a shelf since my bar mitzvah.

If my Mavica can overcome its increasingly frequent bouts of Alzheimer I will post photos of them in the next few weeks.

In an interval of rare digital coherence my camera was able to take these pictures.
My question is what are these marks?

Anybody know?

I don't know if there is anything in this link that is identical to your item, but there might be something that is relevant.

It's the silverplate mark of the very fine French firm of Orfèvrerie d'Ercuis, suppliers to the Art Deco luxury liners "Ile de France" and "Normandie". Very nice!

blakstone, Thank you.

I did not know the maker, but you confirmed my suspicions that it was French silverplate.

From the look I believe that it's probably late 1800's to early 1900's.

Those are the marks for the famous firm of Mazel Tov. (Kidding. Nevertheless, mazel tov! Though I may be a year or or two late.)

Mazel Tov . . . weren't they the successors to Abi Gezunt?
