Silver Touchmark Possibly Egyptian Mirror

Postby altauterouff » Thu Jan 17, 2019 2:25 pm

Unfortunately I don't have any photos of the item as a whole, as it's not in my possession, but I do have a couple photos of the touchmark. It came off the back of an incredibly ornate round mirror. I believe it is Egyptian, maybe 900 fineness and somewhere after 1946. Any information you can give me would be very helpful! Thank you very much for your time.

HI,
It`s Cairo .900 standard, lotus flower used after 1946, date letter difficult to decipher due to inconsistent use of dots.See here:

Thank you for the response! The date mark is what was giving me the most trouble, I just can’t place anything that looks near enough for me to be confident in it.
