Doesn't look French, if not WMF, No 2 is Kayzerzinn.

No 2 choice, I meant 8)

I think WMF did Pewter too, I think it is Edelzinn in German.

Hi Ray,
The nearest thing that I can find is the "cockrel" mark which was used in France on silver pieces between 1798 and 1819. Unfortunately even with increasing the size I cannot read what is written around the cockrel.......presuming that my eyesight isn't failing and it isn't a bird at all :!:
Della :lol:
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....
