Crossed Keys and Crown

Simple Mark, just crossed keys and crown on the underside of a pierced tray.

Who made it and when?

Thanks!

19th Century Italian Initials

Is there anyone that knows about late 19th century Italian Initials or know of any resources for me to research? I have an identical spoon and fork that either say "SH" or "HS". It was printed opposite of the 800. Thank you! https://thumb.ibb.co/jYkHop/IMG-20181013-234939.jpg

Unknown Neill mark?

Hello!

I have identified my spoon to be 1827 Sterling by William Cummins. What I'm confused about is why "Neill" would be in addition to WC, and which Neill would the mark be in reference to? Thank you!

Danish Silver Hallmark Confusion

Image

Hello! This Mark appears to show three Towers showing Danish silver, but it also says "plet" so I'm confused. Is this plated or silver?

Re: F. Guzman

Yes, I did see that, but what I'm wondering is someone that may predate her father.

Is anyone aware of any resources to research Peru Silver in particular?

Re: F. Guzman

I just found an article on a Marina Guzman who says she comes from a family of silversmiths. Any tips on researching silver from Peru?

Re: F. Guzman

Also, my piece doesn't seem to have an eagle Mark, although it had electronically been tested for coin silver.

Re: Connecting a huge tray to a historical figure

Thank you for your reply!

Is there any sort of information from the company still available such as sales receipts?

Also, is there any more history on the company besides the two sentence blurb on the website?

Thank you!
