Yes, this is the Minerva head used after 1972. The 1 at the base of the head on the left indicates silver standard of 925; the letter at the base of the head on the right is a date indicator, in this case D for 2002-2012; the mark on the top right is a symbol or différand indicating the assay office. Here the symbol is a Greek alpha for Paris, used after 1993. To find the maker, please consult the French Ministry of Culture database for Paris makers registered after 1878.http://www.culture.gouv.fr/public/mistr ... 4%24%2534P
To me this is a cream or milk jug from a coffee/tea service.
Good luck in your ongoing research.
