Can anyone help identify this maker's mark? It's on an old tea strainer that may be handmade due to the irregularities in construction. (uneven holes and numbers of holes in each section of the strainer, different sizes of "matching" details on both sides of the handle, etc.) We think it's from the late 1800's or early 1900's. I'll try to get a better picture of it, but it appears to be 3 "plumes" or perhaps a stylized "W," and then a zigzag line below it. The strainer says "sterling" and has the number "5005" below it.
