    Though there is some differences, it is the same maker.

    Still trying to identify the firm/jeweller/maker...

    Some pieces are 900, some (most!) 925.

    All are pastes, set not glued, and I situe the era of production between 1880/1910. I never encountered art deco pieces from him...

    The marks are sometime together on the same punch, sometimes separate as shown.

    Any help welcome :-))

      To see more of these paste pieces from same maker, search on Pinterest for "mysterious maker etruscan urn". I created a board with all I see with this mark.

      I now think it's a Martian or some other alien.

      Hey! Lots of ideas here :-)
      No profile... no knight... Some of worn marks may look like a ship's front view... or a plant in pot... or a pope/bishop tiara... or a flaming pot... The neatest mark is the first pic! Others are rather worn.

      Rose, I registered on 925/ sometime ago, and impossible to log in now! Asked to admin to get new identification link, but got nothing! :-(

      JImam, Karen, I will consider it may be an alien critter ;-D

      Thanks all for trying/loving !

      Hi! I was very intrigued by your stories about this mysterious jewels maker. So i started to search this mark on all jewells with pastes.
      And I found in one ad on ebay same mark on part of monkeys brooch. Here what he is writing:
      "Antique French
      Solid Silver 925 & 9ct Gold Fastener ends
      Monkey Brooch
      Era 1900s -
      Stones are all present and are paste
      Actual Size - See image on ruler
      French hallmark - on back resembles a hot coffee"
      The name of lot is "Antique French Solid Silver Monkey Brooch with 9ct gold accents"

      Thank you Asya for your interest and help :-)
      "Hot coffee" is pretty accurate for the variant of the urn mark, lol!
      The more people interested in finding Info's on this maker, the more probability to put the puzzle pieces together!
      Still wonder what happened to the Parisian Diamond Company for suddenly disappear :\
