The brands are Spanish, REUS is a small town in the province of Tarragona, but I do not know the brands of silversmith and assayer. The brand J/MR is picked up by the book "Marcas de la Plata Española y Virreinal" and identifies it as the assayer, therefore the brand */J.O must be that of the silversmith. I'm sorry I can not help you anymore.

Las marcas son españolas, REUS es una pequeña localidad de la provincia de Tarragona, pero desconozco las marcas de platero y del ensayador. La marca J/MR la recoje el libro "Marcas de la Plata Española y Virreinal" y lo identifica como el ensayador, por lo tanto la marca */J.O ha de ser la del platero. Siento no poderle ayudar mas.
