I have recently purchased a boxed set of four square pressed silver dishes each marked .935 SIL VER over two lines followed by what looks like a Bear. I was sure I had seen the mark recently and have searched my extensive library of decorative arts books and the internet but just can't pin it down.
I feel these pieces are either American, Mexican, Canadian or at a long shot Scandinavian, but the last suggestion is probably the least likely as I am fairly familar with most of the Scandi marks.
Any suggestions most welcome and I suspect my guess will be total wrong! Thanks martra
