I have a set of 4 silver? egg cups, but the marks on them

Customer Question

I have a set of 4 silver? egg cups, but the marks on them are difficult to read. There is a six sided stamp with something above a small M. The name on them looks like M3NENSESL or M&NENSESL. Also a stamp surrounded small lines as if you were drawing the rays of the sun with a large M shape with the middle line right to the bottom and small lines to the side.

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please send two photos - one of a cup and one clear, close-up of the marks on the bottom.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "reply to expert" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.
