Im so glad i found this forum. What an interesting read this has been!
I recently picked this up at a flea market because i fell in love with it. Im curious if the mark on the bottom is for the silver or the maker of the entire object.
It seems stone of some sort with beautiful silver work. If this is a new item its done with the time of the old.
If anyone has any info on this i would appreciate hearing it! Heck even theories or hair brained schemes :)
lots more pics too.....
