Hello everyone, and especially those who know about French silver. It is a rather complicated subject and I have already given up on becoming an expert, but I would like to learn at least the basic things.
I saw this chocolate pot on the Internet, described as being from the mid-18th century, re- hallmarket in the 19th.
I'd like to know
why the marks of the eighteenth century, on the bottom and on the lid, are only two ?
What exactly are the other marks struck in the 19th century besides Minerva ?
Thanks in advance
