Hi Polly,

Welcome to the Forum.

I've often seen that mark struck on pieces that originate from the Singapore/Malaysian Peninsular area.

Another example of the mark, containing the same numbering: 1260B

Polly

The script is Jawi which is Arabic script used in Malaysia

The word is Kelantan - a state in northern Malaysia which has a tradition of silverwork

There have been about a dozen posts in the Middle East forum over the past two years which ask about this word but I was focussed on Arabic and ended up quite perplexed

It was Trev's observation which caused me to switch focus. Tks Trev. Mystery solved - or at least the part about the origin.

Regards

Damon

Hi Damon,

Great work! Your research has been the pointer to identify what I believe could well be the maker.

Mohd Salleh & Sons
1260B, Jln Sultanah Zainab,
15050 Kota Bharu
Kelantan

This is the forum working at its best, and it shows what can be achieved when we all work together.

Regards, Trev.
