Good Morning,

From what I was able to find on the photo that you need to emended instead of link is that 18G is the French hallmark for silver-plated objects after 1927.

As far as the other mark it is very blurry and hard to see but it looks like OR angled in the bottom right corner of a square with something possibly above it. The best I could find was Roaldès, Omer a French Silversmith around 1905 if there is a saw or a star above the initials O.R.

Best of Luck

Please re-shoot maker mark in rectangle and embed image. 1927 was the year of the study of plate marks, in use long before that...see Ref. article on number marks for plated wares: https://www.925-1000.com/a_platenumbers.html

French platers marks (oriented in rectangle/square shape, not diamond) might include "O" for Orfeveries or Orfevres before name intial (like your R). But we cannot be sure here without a better image. There are also many pages in this site of French Advertisements with some firm names listed within.

And just to be clear, a diamond shape is technically known as a "lozenge", which this is not.
