Hello, can someone help me in identifying the hallmarks on this silver cruet? I can see something like 'AP'...
Thank you!

Hi,
Repeated capital ``A`` is seen as secondary marks on Vienna silver, often with Diana`s head.
See here:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=50383&p=154880&hilit=vienna+secondary+mark#p154880
On the other hand, assay Tremolirstich (zig-zag line) was used earler.
Looks like it was repaired with soft lead - tin solder which possibly obscured more marks.
Soft solder is easily scratched with needle tip and can be removed for a professional repair.
Identification based on initials lacking town or national mark is really impossible.

Regards
