I cant find theese stamps anywere, does anyone have a clue, it is a heavy sauce pot, about 300 gram.

Have spoken with some people and they guess this was made somewere between 1740 - 1790. What do you think?

Im glad for all answers :-)

    Hi from Sydney Australia!
    The mark might be Prussian. I think it is from the city of Liegnitz ( now Legnica in Poland).
    Nice sauceboat!

    Hi again from Sydney!
    I have had another look at these marks and have another suggestion that might make some sense.
    The key mark was also used by a firm in Hanau:
    B. Neresheimer und Söhne
    They were founded in 1893 and became L. Neresheimer & Co in 1904.
    Of import is that they exhibited in the US in twoimportant exhibitions:
    1893 in Chicago at the World's Columbian exhibition
    and in 1904 at the St. Louis International Exhibition.
    It seems mark stamping in Hanau was a free for all. They saw themselves as a free trade centre and the town specialized in doing reproductions of "antique silver".
    Again I am not sure but it could be helpful to you in your research.
