Hi Everyone, I found this box in a pile of junk I bought and noticed that the hinges had hallmarks, I wonder if anyone can identify the country, maker and a rough date? The Maker mark stamped a few times seems to be "AKO", on the other hinge it seems to have "AKO" again and the what looks like two A's in boxes? I am not sure if I have got the links to the photo's correct as it is a new host as my other one's have shut down.
are secondary marks for Vienna assay office 1872-1922.It appears on finials, legs, handles etc, sometimes struck twice and sometimes with Diana`s head. Could not find any legislation in regard of its use. Regards
