This is a selection of marks used by Italian silversmiths of the 20th century.
The use of a 'factory mark' is a practice scarsely followed by Italian silversmiths and usually the identification of the maker relies only on the 'number' introduced in 1935 on the 'lozenge mark'.
In this page I present some marks of Italian factories and the links to a wide directory of Italian silversmiths of the 20th century, sorted by province.
Your contribute in suggestions, informations and photos will be greatly appreciated

GRASSI LUIGI - Milano
Mark MI 208
Factory marks (eagle inside an octagon and rampant lion?) were used beside the lozenge mark with 208MI and fascio. A stylized GP and point monogram was also used (may be the sign of the designer: Gio Ponti?) The mark belongs to a rectangular silver tray made about 1940.
