Hi Anto,

Silver Gravy/Sauce Boat, double-lipped with two loop handles and over-struck marks.

Nice find and yes, Belgian silver guild marks, two town mark; a Castle Tower with 6 battlements (6 dots) (overstruck) for the Belgian city of Bergen, in French called Mons, together with the other city mark AE(conjoined) crowned (overstruck). Year-letter 69 for 1769.

Maker's mark AP, at the moment without my reference books but I believe it to be an unidentified maker's mark. Will double check after the 19th of December and confirm.
The zig zag mark; Assaying by tremulierstrich or silver removal. See;

Hello Anto,

The maker's initials AP are known for Bergen 18th century. Unfortunately unidentified.

Best,

Peter
