Hi,
I think it is the unicorn mark of Gebrüder Kühn - Schwäbisch Gmünd.They are known to have changed the form of the unicorn mark and this one is obviously related to Art Deco style of the set.
The first mark is crescent and crown.Most likely made for export.

Hello, pieces from the "series m", designed by Karl Dittert for Kuehn in 1959. It was made in Sterling and silverplate and and also included heater, tea pot etc. This modern form of the Kuehn unicorn mark was used ca. 1960-1970, then Kuehn went back to its traditional unicorn mark. Regards, Bahner
