958 Silver owl

Good afternoon
My latest find is a solid silver owl marked 958. Cant figure out the makers mark in triangle. Owl weights 78g.
Thanks

Good evening
Here is a better picture of the mark. It tested positive for silver. It is 45mm x 20mm.
What other countries will use 958 silver other than United Kingdom?

Hi Jannie,

That looks like a Rhodesian mark to me.

Good day Trev
Thanks a lot. It is a sable antelope mark for Rhodesian Standard Association. So the owl did not fly too far from home...

Could this be by Patrick Mavros? Do you think that this is indeed 958 silver or could it just be a model number?
