THE FRONT VIEWS ARE ON INDIVIDUAL POSTS, SEEN IN COLLECTION:
Mysterious maker's mark: "etruscan urn". | kyratango | Collectors Weekly
This mark, which I call etruscan urn, shows evolution, but always on 900 or 925 silver paste jewellery.
Either stamped on the same punch or separate, as shown in pics.
All the pieces I saw date between 1880 and 1910'.
This maker was prolific and he sometimes produced same models than Knoll and Pregizer:
The monkeys brooch, leaves, butterflies.
Paris1925 and Katherine thought it was the French amphora hallmark:
French Hallmarks - Online Encyclopedia of Silver Marks, Hallmarks & Makers' Marks
But this mark, from 1958 to present, is only for 999 pure silver coins or bullions and only struck in Paris!
