Silver dish hallmark question

Postby rustyspoon » Thu Apr 26, 2018 2:48 pm

Hi to the wonderful people of the forum!
Just got a little antique dish, it's about 3.5" long. I assume it is European?
Nice piece, but I am soooo not proficient in silver hallmarks. Any idea what these are?
Your help will be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you AG2012!
As I understand it's a replica of older silver or is it one of their own designs?
And do you think it's sterling or 800 silver?

Thank you for your help!

In style of old silver ( cherub / putti) .Probably not an exact reproduction of a particular baroque silver item.
Most of their silver is .800.
