Hello,

Your piece was imported in London in 1902 by this T.H. Silversmith I cannot trace. Looking at the other hallmarks it could be french but I would not bet on it. Best Regards. Myriam

Bonsoir Susan,

I totally agree with Bahner and I can complete the information by telling that Louis Coignet was operating from his shop located 20 rue Barbette in Paris and his maker's mark is registered from 1893 to 1928. Hope this help. Best Regards. Myriam

Dear Steve, because of the size this looks like a snuff box to me. This was mainly a man's item where was kept the tobacco which they used to snuff.

Hope this could help

Best Regards
Myriam

P.S. I fully agree with Silvy for the origin and maker.

Hello Jason, Crab mark shows that it is 800 french silver. If you could tell me in the losange mark which is the letter on the left side of the rose, I can tell you who the maker can be and then narrow down the date as they are many possibilities with an M on the right handside of the rose.

For exemple FAIRCHILD who has a fairly large hallmark for other pieces is simply using an F on d...

So many thanks Bahner, I suspected it was not TRUNCK because the mark was not exactly similar to the one depicted in the German marks.

Have a nice day
