Identify maker "OSCH" on Czech deco candlesticks

Postby Peartree » Thu Sep 26, 2019 4:57 pm

I was hoping someone might be able to shed some light on the maker of these large silver candlesticks. The design is strikingly art deco, albeit with hammering effect more familiar to the arts and crafts period. They are assayed for Czech 1929-41. 800 silver standard. The question is who is the marker/retailer OSCH? No amount of googling has revealed anything. There is a further mark shown (conceivably another country's import mark) that looks like "18" but when rotated could be a very different image. All thoughts gratefully received.
Thank you
Anthony

Thank you. I couldn’t quite understand whether it was suggesting the mark on my candlestick is an export, not import, mark?

I believe it be used as an import mark and Import duties were paid in Israel. Made in Czechy.

There must be at least one more letter in front of OSCH, possibly the name of German maker in Czechoslovakia.
For example,Tosch is rather common German family name.
Also,possibly not officially exported to Israel but brought there and the owner had Israel mark added.

A bit of a wild guess, but after the country was formed Checko-slovakia was not an uncommon spelling....so maybe the stamp is maker OS in CHecko-Slovakia?
