As the Forum is devoted primarily to the discussion of silver marks, without posting a photo of the actual marks in question, it is impossible to answer any query about either those marks or the item into which they have been stamped.
Furthermore, I would not wish to publish a blanket opinion here regarding the age or authenticity of hundreds or thousands of items that I have not examined myself in person.
Finally, if the OP has a question about an item now in her or his possession, he or she should post photos of that actual item. And if the OP wishes to learn more about how Chinese silver, both antique and modern, reading through past posts in the Far East section, as well as in the Jewellery section, should in time reveal all the answers to the questions posed.
I leave it to our Admins to chime in if this reply is not satisfactory.

As my earlier response noted, the marks photographed have already been discussed here in prior threads, so that any users reading through can draw their own conclusions.
