Hope that help you.

Re: taper stick with fish mark

Hi Sarah!

Your mark makes me think to french or german hallmarks from the xviiie.

Unfortunately the style of your item do not match with this period...

Wait for others opinions.

Help identifying those marks

Hi all! Here is what I suggest to be a silver made salt and pepper set: is that right? Then, what about those hallmarks I don't know (usually people say "Persian")? http://i63.tinypic.com/rib2pw.jpg http://i67.tinypic.com/15n7rcj.jpg http://i68.tinypic.com/312gzzq.jpg Thanks for your help!...
