is this german silver

Postby tonyatl » Tue Aug 16, 2011 12:25 am

i have a basket which i suspect may be german but have no specific evidence beyond the feel of the metal. i do not find a hallmark but there are initials as noted. am i barking up the wrong tree? can anyone read the intials or explain what the indicate - maker's mark?

They look like Hanua marks to me, http://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_hanau_marks_01.html

Possibly George Roth, but not 100% sure.
