French silver box

Hi All, I'm hoping someone can help me identify the approximate age of this silver box. I believe it's French (love the naughty theme). I attempted to research the mark, & assuming it is French, came up with the following regarding the crowned F WARRANTY MARK (JURANDE): this mark certified the s...

Re: 900 Silver Letter Opener

Thank you David. I think you are correct. Using Plata 900 I was able to find a few other pieces of silver marked PLATA FEBI 900. South American, possibly Chilean. Very helpful & much appreciated.

Re: Russian silver mark?

Hi Qrt.S, Thank you very much for the information! So not a silver mark at all, but a mark stating the name of the factory where the piece was made? And I'm sorry to seem so dense, but my efforts at research have produced results in Russian, which I cannot read. I'm assuming 1963 indicates date of m...

Thank you Cheryl & Warren for your comments & links. The www.925-1000.com/a_yogya.htmllink was very helpful, as was the Djokja - Techniek site.

Re: RFI Gilt silver Middle Eastern necklace

Hi,
Thank you for the information. I must have taken 25 photos of the marks, these were the best I was able to get...they are extremely tiny. Can't read them with my strongest loupe.
After your suggestion, I searched Portuguese jewelry & indeed there were several similar pieces.
Best,
Nancy
