Hi Proppen,

Welcome to the Forum.

I believe the Three Crowns in an oval is the mark for 830/1000 silver imported into Sweden.
I'm sure you will get a far more definitive answer soon.

Regards Trev.

Hi,
Yes, the Three Crowns in an oval is the Swedish import mark. Your candle holders could have been made in either Denmark or Norway. Both countries stamp with 830S.

One of the marks - there is something under the 3 crowns mark - but i cannot see what.
That should be makers mark.

Hi, and many thanks for your answer =)

Yes, the sig looks almost like a fish or something.

Could it be imported from Finland? Hopeakeskus oy Finland ??

Considering the viewable marks on the piece, Finland does not seem likely.
