Identification of French maker's mark

Postby mgrimor » Tue Oct 15, 2019 9:26 am

Hello, I am unable to identify the following maker's mark in a French silver teacup and saucer. It looks like an L over crossed Ls. I would appreciate any info. Thanks!

Hello
You don’t show a Minerva mark, so can’t tell if this is a Paris maker. If it is, recommend you search the French Ministry of Culture website for makers registered after 1878.

http://www2.culture.gouv.fr/public/mistral/marque_fr

I suggest a 20thC timeframe for this object because of the monogram, CGT, Compagnie Générale Transatlantique, the French steamship company.

Good luck in your research!

Thank you very much! Here I add photos of the monogram, that actually is GCC (I can't find what it refers to), and the Minerva mark. I haven't been able to find the maker in the Ministry of Culture yet, but I will keep looking.
