    An odd mark to be sure, we don't have this one on file, but it postdates 1891 when most European companies began to use country of origin marks to deal the American Trade tarriff regulations enacted late in 1890 ( Pieces being imported into the USA had to be marked with their country of origin). The decoration is in a style that was out of fashion by the early 1920's.
