Help Identifying Silver Teapot Austria Hungry?

Postby Packrat » Sun Jun 04, 2006 12:04 am

Hello, I need some help identifying this silver teapot. One mark resembles the Austria Hungry Diana head mark I found on this site. The marks shown are on the bottom. The two marks minus the letters are repeated on the edge of the lid.

I cannot help you with the mark, but if you write the letter written next to the heads just next to the nose. Then I can tell you in which city this item was made.
The mark also contents a figure - write that as well the I can tell you the content of silver. It can between 750 and 950 out of 1.000.

Thanks for the reply Hose_dk . With greater magnification, I was able to read the letter next to the nose, which is clearly a P. There is also a number to the lower left of the head which appears to be an 8. I can also now see two symbols inside the second mark, but I can't clearly make out what they are.

Thanks again, Packrat

P is the city Pest
And 8 is probaly 3 corresponding to 800/1000 silver
The figure varies between 1 and 4 where 1=950 and 4=750
