Hi,
There are too many Fleur-de-lis marks; what`s the mark on the left - it`s more important for identification ? (A flower with number....or ?)
Better close up is needed.

Hi, could this be the French (deformed) oval weevil mark used 1864-1893. Items imported to France from a treaty country were stamped with an oval frame-shaped weevil mark. The pumpkin shaped, naturalistic style tea pot fits above time period.

Thank you AG2012 and Peter,

The mark is very small and deformed. I Thought there were some vegetable leaves in the mark. There are no numbers or letters.

Observing the mark, I think it could be as you say, Peter. Trunk and abdomen are very similar. The head is deformed. And the style of the object, would fit in the opportune chronological section.

Thanks and Best Regards

Jaume
