    G'day stackers

    Does any body known anything about this stamp/mark?
    Found something for sale on the local BSS page and they said the only markings it has are "T90 silver stamped on the bottom".
    I googled "t90 silver" but only found a few items with "t90" on them and didn't get much clarification from it all.

    Thanks Dan

    Ps. I bought it anyway because it was a good price/gamble and it will proberly be one of thoes things I just have to get xrf tested to know

    the internet told me ....

    "T90 is a modern mark used in Cambodia. If you go there, you will found items with this mark easily and the price is low. They are hand made, but most people think they are silverplated on cupronickel."

    "I have to write in support of rauls last assesment - I have pieces from Cambodia with the T90 stamp and the same leafy-floral motif. Mid 20th C and older have higher chance of being 90% silver; I have more recent items marked T90 that are silver plated so it is not a guarantee of content. The finer workmanship in your owl would make me think it is solid silver and older in age maybe mid 20th c. Cambodia has a long history of making boxes in animal motifs mostly for betel nut sets and the tourist trade. This is the first owl I've seen and is of very good workmanship requiring a great deal of skill and time to create - a truely unique piece."
