I hope you can see the marks okay. I can't find any information on this. Has anyone seen this before? It says:

STERLING Peru
Colmenares (unknown mark)25
A'MANO

I think this is a repoussed dish of some sort. Not sure.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Lfdawson-

You do not say how large it is, so I cant take a guess what it is. But the markings are of course "Sterling" silver, made in "Peru" by the maker "Colmenares" The unknown mark is a 9. Making it "925" for the silver content .925-1000 "A'MANO" by hand.
So, sterling silver made in Peru, by hand by a smith named Colmenares.

Regards- Byron
p.s. very good looking piece.
