Mexican? Silver Weave Basket with tiny tiny "FV"? hallmark

Postby dwma » Mon Jul 22, 2013 11:45 am

I have a silver weave basket, 5.75" by 4.75", sits on small feet. I think it is Mexican since other "woven" items I see were largely made in Mexico. The hallmark is tiny and partial, impressed on a single wire. It looks like F over V but the bottom portion of the hallmark is not visible. Could be PV FW PW or anything. Do you know who made this? What is the silver content?
