Hi everyone, I'm new here. Picked up this tea cup? A while back not even sure where it came from maybe an estate sale or a buy out I did. Was just going through some things and there it was. Didn't realize it was silver at first so kinda wrote it off. Decided to test it on the testing stone with acid and sure enough it was silver. Noticed a hallmark while doing so, woohoo, then I accidentally broke the handle, bummer. Any one out there that can shed some light on this mark. Maybe Asian, Japanese, Chinese or some type Arabic or Middle Eastern mark? Thanks for any info provided. It's very ornate. Would be cool to put a date or maker on it.
