Vintage Cigarette Case, Made in France, unknown maker's mark/hallmark

Postby Ashleym527 » Wed Feb 01, 2017 8:24 pm

http://imgur.com/2UKZkNyI'm normally pretty good at figuring these things out, but I'm stuck on this one!

It's an old gold, or possibly silver, gold plated cigarette case.

There are 2 initials on either side of that bird... That are rubbed down pretty bad, so you can't see in the picture...

I'm pretty sure it's J (bird) C, or J (bird) G.

Says made in France... Then underneath, a smeared 6 with 2 more smaller, indecipherable numbers/letters.

Then the shield, with a hammer crossed with what looks like a dragon.

Myself and 2 other people have spent hours searching for what any of these symbols mean. Other than the made in France, lol... I can't even figure out what the 2 4 0 stamp means.

I'm usually really good at finding this stuff... But need your help with this one! Thanks in advance for any info!

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

You need to embed your image, as very few people will click on links.

Hi,
Have resized and embedded the image.
I think the marks are not consistent with French gold or silver marks, but silver-plate marks (maker`s mark in a rectangle).
Take a look here:

Hi,
More precisely ``gold-plated``(plaque or). But base metal, not gold-plated silver.
Regards
