It looks like Lidköping in Sweden. The three crown mark (cat's paw) is the assay mark guaranteeing not less than 830/1000 fineness. Unfortunately I cannot find a matching maker EF or possibly EP or...?, for the moment. If I find one I revert to it later. What is the size of it? In my eyes it looks like a sugar bowl, but? Let's wait for other opinions.
Hi, thanks for your help, it is not a sugar bowl, it is a compote or a center piece, it measures 13 "high including the lid and 10" wide including the handles, it has an approximate weight of 800 grams. is EF, I checked it with a magnifying glass. I would like to know who the assayer is.
In my last message I anticipated that the town would be Lidköping, but no master was found. I believe. I have to change my mind. The town mark is more likely Skänninge because there there is a maker punching EF 1855-1877. His name is Edvard Fröberg, born 13.9.1827 in Norrköping and dead 1.12.1877. However, the town mark is still a bit "uncommon", so ...? There are no assayers' names in Sweden. As already mentioned, the three crowns mark is the official control mark symbolizing the "assayer".
