Unknown mark

Hello! I would be very grateful for help. I wonder what country a silver box is from? In addition to this mark, it has the import stamp for silver (oval) and S. Which means that it is imported to Sweden. Best regards Per https://i.postimg.cc/dLXFWn9x/38-FEEC45-5509-4-B6-D-9617-5-F6-D521-B3-AC2.jpg
