Does anybody know the marks on this servette holder?
Thank you,

Hi Alain,

It's very difficult to see your marks, but they do look very much like Irish silver.
Any chance of a better picture?

Hi Trev,
I took some more pictures yesterday, but none was good enough to post.
The first mark looks like "N.P",the second is "2", and the third looks like "gt", i can't make anything out of the forth one.
That "2" is on other silver that i have.I haven't figuard out yet what that means.Any idea?
Have a nice day,
Alain

Hi Alain,

The second mark to me looks like a seated Hibernia, the mark of the Dublin Goldsmiths Company, or maybe it's an illusion.

As an alternative - to me the 2nd mark illusion is the Brittania mark.
Is there any chance that the third mark could be a Harp Crowned rather than "gt", which then make Hibernia the logical mark.

Hi Dognose and Larkfield,
I took another picture.It is still not 100%, but this one is rather difficult to fotograph.
I had a look at the mark that looks like the seated Hibernia with a juwelers mag. glass,20x21 mm., and i can say that this is not the seated Hibernia.:(
Hope this pic. will help to solve the mystery!
