Hi. Looks like poinçon CRABE to me which is French and seen on watch casings most commonly but also on smaller items of French silver. From the style of the case I would say late 19th/early 20th century but difficult to be precise sure via a jpg.

Hello Jason,

Crab mark shows that it is 800 french silver. If you could tell me in the losange mark which is the letter on the left side of the rose, I can tell you who the maker can be and then narrow down the date as they are many possibilities with an M on the right handside of the rose.

Best Regards
Myriam

Thank you so much for the information already provided it is so useful and informative. Still trying to identify the mark to the left of the rose will get back to you once I have finished cleaning the mark

Hello, the letters 'C' and 'M' together with this kind of flower were used by C. Murat from Paris. Probably he is the one. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello Jason,

I agree with Bahner and to complete the information the details of Charles MURAT were MURAT et cie, 62 rue des Archives, Paris and hallmark was registered at the Paris assay office on 3rd of june, 1897.

Hope we could help you

Best Regards
Myriam
