Dutch Candlesticks Date and Maker ID help

Greetings,
I have searched and was unable to ascertain the maker on a set of 4 candlesticks. I can see these were from The Hague. The maker appears to be initials J.S. and was unsure of date as well. Any help would be fantastic.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
Rick

Hi mainebrook,


I am on my way (abroad)
In my opinion FS = Francois Simons
He worked in The Hague in the last quarter of the 18th century until the beginning of the first quarter of the 19th century

Wait for confirmation from someone who can consult the books

Hi Dendried,

Yes, I can confirm FS, FS and F.S for François Marcus Simons registered in the Hague 1776-1828, Lion Rampant Province of Holland standard mark for 934/000 fineness, Stork with eel Crowned town mark of the Hague, year letter E crowned for 1800.
François Marcus Simons born in The Hague in 1750 and died in The Hague 1828, a very prolific silversmith.
