The marks on this caster seem to indicate that it was imported into Holland in 1845. Can anyone identify the three-lobed mark which appears to depict three meteors! Was this the mark of the maker or the importer? I've examined the piece closely and the marks in the picture are all on the inner lip of the top removable section. The only other mark I can find on the whole object is another Dutch tax mark for imported silver stamped to the foot. The top fits the base tightly and so this, together with the overall composition of the design, makes me confident this is not a marriage.
As always, any help would be much appreciated.
