Hi,

There is one image showing here of the front. At your convenience, please send a photo showing the backside and a close-up of the marks. Also, just to clarify, is it marked 800 or 830?

Hi,

Are you able to provide a close-up of the 830 mark?

Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.

Hello,

Thank you for your patience. The 830 mark denotes this as Scandinavian silver; likely from Finland or Denmark. The image on the porcelain plaque was transferprinted and not hand painted. On today's market, your circa 1910 necklace pendant in 830 silver with a porcelain portrait plaque can sell for $40 - $70.
