I can translate the norwegian text.
I can add that (in Denmark) the Zodiakalsign 69 was in use from 1676 to 1830 - the the Naturalistic signs was in use from 1830-1852.
As the Norwegian way was linked to the danish (in the past) they just didnt shift as the danes did.

That is correct and the figure at the left of the ponytail. Should be 1 for 950 silver, 2 for 900 silver, 3 for 800 sliver and 4 for 750 silver.
i can also see the P but not the figure.

Yes the two towers is Danish and it means silver plated. from 1608 3 towers represented silver in Copenhagen from 1870 3 towers represented siver in Denmark. Smart business men the got the idea if 3 towers represented silver then why not 2 towers silverplated ? So they did and in (i think in the 193...

I can confirm that the 3 towers are from Denmark. The 3 towers was used in 1608 for the first time and the mark has been produced ever since. A new mark every year so you can always see what year an item was produced. This Copenhagen system ended in 1870. After 1870 every silver smith in Denmark cou...

I cannot help you with the mark, but if you write the letter written next to the heads just next to the nose. Then I can tell you in which city this item was made.
The mark also contents a figure - write that as well the I can tell you the content of silver. It can between 750 and 950 out of 1.000.

It is very difficould to see the head. You suggest Austria but normally they include a figure 1 to 4 for 950/1000m to 750/1000 and a letter for the town. Does your head look like this? I dont know how to add a picture. And I can see that I am not able to do so. And I dont know how to delete my post....

It loooks like Carl Valdemar Sørensen Hillerød (Denmark) born 1834 working 1855
His own business 18th february 1859 - 1879.
If he is the silver smith - then the engraving must be at a later date. perhaps when he was born.

I think that it is Swedish. Could you describe the marks. Or try a better picture.

The silver smith had given his mark but before the official mark was giver they took this ...
