Good evening
What grade of silver would this most likely be? 900?
I like the piece, but is it something that was mass produced?

Hi Jannie,

No, hand-made. Probably 800-900.

The script mark which is in Jawi, an Arabic script used in Malaysia, the script translates to the word is Kelantan, a state in northern Malaysia which has a tradition of silverwork.
