Cheryl, I really couldn't see the mark, even with my loupe. Now that you have helped, I can see that it is the Georg Jensen mark. Thanks so much. These tired old eyes clearly need new glasses!

Cheryl, thank you very much. How interesting. I thought it might be a sewing item of some kind, but since I don't and can't sew, I was stymied. I appreciate the information.
