The Minerva head silver standard mark in an octagonal reserve for 950 silver was in use from 1838-1972.
This Tétard Frères mark was registered in 1903. No end date is given, but the company continued in business until at least 1973, and closed in 2005 after being purchased by Daum. Therefore we can say your item dates from between 1903 and 1972 when the Minerva head changed appearance - a wide range of time.
A Google search and a search on this forum will give you the history of Tétard Frères, in all its iterations over the century the company was in business.
As for other observations about this object, I’d say that it is not hand-forged, and has an applied milled band as decoration.
