Silver Box unknown hall marks

Postby asmodeus » Mon Nov 08, 2021 12:57 pm

Hello to all,

I am struggling with this silver(?) mark on this box of Thailand(?).

Can somebidy tell me more? Is it silver?

Thank you very much for your help!

Hi,
Definitely made in Thailand, with the Ramakien (Ramayana) figure in the center, likely mid 20th century. The mark is unusual, probably a maker's mark, nothing about the silver content. Genuine Thai silver is usually marked .925 or Sterling, or the Thai-language equivalent. Fake Thai silver is often marked that way as well. You would need to test your box, or have it tested, for silver content.
