Ebony and Silver Serving Utensils Maker????

Post by Art Lover on September 1st 2011, 2:58 pm

Can anyone possibly help me with the maker of these utensils? It looks like Arabic to me and was wondering if anyone could help me with the period that they may have been made. They are both signed and have a number 1260 B. Thanks![img][/img][img][/img][img][/img]

1970's fish servers?
Maybe not silver as there's no import marks or .925 stamp, though that's obviously working on the British hallmark systam. I'm not knowledgeable on the American system for marking imported silverware; could you enlighten me on this please, Art Lover?

American silver is always marked 'sterling' or 925. I was wondering if they are from India they were made after the English occupation in India was over. I have no idea what their system requires for marking silver. Thanks for the input!
