Hi,
I have this little continental silver bowl/dish but would very much like to know more!
It is stamped 800 with another letter or two but even with a magnifying glass they’re unreadable.
Can anyone identify where it might have been made?
Thanks in advance!

I normally see 800 stamped on German and Italian silver, without seeing a closer view of the actual marks on this dish, I cannot help further with who made it, my eyes just cannot make them out.

Can you get a closer image of just the marks using the macro facility on your camera?

But it definitely has a German feel to me though, with the floral influence. Probably dates to around 1920's to 1950's

Thanks very much for the information!
Using a magnifying stand I was able to take another picture , not sure if it helps ?
The makers (?) mark appears to be 3 letters (1st unreadable ) HS or H6
I had assumed with the hammered nature of the metalwork it wasn’t European , but what do I know, LOL.
Thanks again!

Unofrtunately the letters and number do not help.

I have seen hand hammered silverware from various European countries, on German, Polish, Norwegian and Danish silver in particular.

Sorry I could help with further information about the letters / number, but it is a nice piece.

I thought the mark wouldn’t help tbh.....
Never mind at least I know the likely origin of it!
Even though it was very tarnished and quite dirty I was surprised to have found it in a charity shop!
Thanks again for your help .
