Help identifying a mark I can’t find yet maybe Chinese tea set

Postby Scottydoesntknow » Fri Nov 30, 2018 4:17 pm

I have a set as pictured with this mark on it. I don’t even know which side is up. The pot has “sterling” stamped, but the smaller pieces only have the maker mark.
Google translate for Chinese came up with “send a young”, which is probably not too accurate.
Any help provided would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Image

That's the "jungin" mark for "pure silver,"
which, in my experience, seems to be used on anything from 90% upwards.
(Comments welcomed on that point.)

Hi, the tea pot set were from China as the Chinese silver stamp shown. It looks like a British style tea pot set, so I believe they were made on late 19 Century or early 20 centutry. SInce middle of 19 Century, porslin was not a big export goods from China, silver art work, especially the British style teat pot, were more and more exported to Europé.
Best wishes,
Bo
