Please let me show you a silver little chatelaine purse about 1895's. It has on the ring 3hallmarks (see picture)one hallmark looks like a kind of letter x, then I believe to see 800 silver hallmark and the third is at all difficult to decipher this looks like a makers mark.
It's a little purse with a beautifully crafted bracket with crocodiles (4) on it and a fruit dish. As you can see on the photo seethis purse has 2 boxes.
The little purse is in excellent condition. And another example of the beautiful small pieces which one used to have in the past. Measurement: 2.5 x 3 ".Does someone knows something more to tell about the hallmarks marks?
After some time and help of my fellow collectors (see below) I was able to detect a mark for Germany and a mark for the city of Freiburg. Thanks this help of the viewers so how wonderful is CollectorsWeekly!!!
