Mark on knife rest - any ideas welcome

Postby Markus12 » Thu Aug 13, 2020 4:09 pm

So, I have these knife rests, e.g.:

On one end of the base there is "12" stamped:

Scouring the internet led me to believe that this most likely means these knife rests are 750/1000 silver from Germany.

However, the hallmark is almost illegible:

I am not even sure I look at it from the right angle.

To me it looks like an "O" or "0" at the left and a "R" or "P" on the right side, with two blobs inbetween.

The upper one of the blobs might be a shield or head and the lower one a crown. Maybe. I might be on the completely wrong track here. The photos are not perfect, but the marks are not much better in original.

I looked at a lot of hallmarks today, but could not find a match. Any ideas?
