I went through the list of Danish Silversmiths and was able to find something similar to the initial stamped on the base of this item. The list showed JThS but the mark on this item is a J with a th inter-twined and a separate S. I imagine it could be the mark of Jorgen Th Steffenson of Randers, Denmark in 1972-1976.
I am also really wondering about the use of this item; was it a playing Card holder, a traveling Card Holder or a Cigarette case. Also, what is the "facing commas" mark near the initials. It measures 3 5/8" long, 2 1/4" wide by 1" thick, opens at the top and has a hammered silver finish on the back.
If anyone can offer their thoughts, I would truly appreciate it. Thanks all, RER (LOUMANAL)
