Unknown Marks (GW?) on Sterling Silver Baby

Postby AileenReid » Tue Jan 01, 2013 3:22 pm

I have the following sterling silver baby with what looks to be the mark G above a W and 925. Can anyone please help identify the maker's mark?

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

Your images are too small for identification. Please post a larger image of, at least, the mark.

Trev.

Hi ~ Though your post has been moved to an American forum, doubt that it is American-made. Looks to me like a fairly recent resin-filled electroformed figurine or miniature sculpture - used to see a lot of similar cute, and properly marked, pieces from Italy, but in the last several years, most I've seen seem to be coming out of Israel. Don't recognize your mark, but for what it's worth, I read it as 'LGW'.

I see used jewelry with this mark currently for sale. The sellers believe the mark is GLW. I don't know what it is. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
