Those are links to the pictures.
Please help me identify the hallmark and maybe what could have been used for this silver vase.

Thank you!

... or if you want to use the images you have already uploaded click on "Embed Codes" in the page below your image and copy the appropriate BBCode for either full or thumbnail image depending on the size of your image (in order to respect our image size requirements).

Hello,

I think is a partial hallmark, hopefully someone could identify it.
The inside has some wax, maybe was intended as a support for a candle...?
Any help is welcome,
Thank You!

Maybe ALPACA?

While it does look like a remnant of a P is next to ACA, projecting the full size of this half mark would mean ALPACA would not be properly centered around the base...it would be offset to the right a bit. Had it fit properly, then the top word might have been Blanca...both Metal Blanco & Metal Blanca were found in early 1900's US documents related to the Philipines. But Blanca Alpaca does not seem to show as in useage at all. I think we may be back at scratching our heads here.

The metal is silver, tested with acid. The reactive color is blood red. I scratched it deep so is not plated.

Nevermind!
Is silver plated, I tested again scratching deeper.
The word "alpaca" is probably on the bottom.
Sorry for misleading...
