Unknown Silver Marks Possibly Germanic

Anyone have any ideas?
I cannot tell if these are pseudo marks, or possibly from the Netherlands, or Germany, though I am thinking the cup is 18th century.
I would appreciate any and all insights.
Thanks.

It appears to be authentic 18th century French silver cup properly marked with pre-revolutionary marks.
The marks are as follows:
- Charge and Discharge marks for Jurisdiction of Reims used between 1781-1789
- Maison Commune mark for Sainte-Menehoulde used between 1785-1787 (old mark)
- Maison Commune mark for Sainte-Menehoulde used in 1785 (new mark with number 84)
- Maker's mark for Jean-Joachim Jouette who became master in 1759

Thank you so much.
I was so confused by the bee mark.
I am incredibly grateful for the ID.
