Hi, From the description of the marks I can conclude (with some reserves because I didn't see them) that it is indeed German. The Crown with Moon mark is used in germany since 1884 (effective 1888). 800 is ofcourse the silvercontent mark. The decoration on front could indicate Queen Victoria and Pri...

I did some digging and found out the following: The Gebr. Roelsema firm was famous for his fakes and fake silvermarks. They specialized in birthspoons, but apparently did purses aswell. One of the marks (the A above an 8) is a documentated pseudo mark for the Groninger dateletter of 1774/1775 (no. 1...

Hard to tell, the name that pops up is "v/d Lely" family.

It's the makers mark of "Koninklijke Van Kempen Begeer". They still excist. The small mark on top is a sword which was in use for small silver items since 1814 .. it's hard to make out from the picture which one it actually is, but I think one from after 1953/55, which makes sense from the...
