What does this mean?

Hi Timothy,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
There probably are some marks somewhere but they are tiny. Nonetheless this is of exquisite quality but there is a big difference in value depending on where this was made (and potentially by who made it), so I'm having to give this a fairly broad value range without knowing where or when this was made).
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An antique silver and plique a jour enamel teaspoon
German, late 19th Century
Silver frame with a glass bowl, enamel panels, marked on the underside of the handle 800, then indistinctly
4-5/8 inches
CONDITION: appears to be in good condition
$200-300*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you again for using Mearto.

You were right. Very small on side of curve. These are the best shots I could get. Thanks

Your photo are excellent; unfortunately, the only mark I think I can make out is 800 which suggests this was made in Germany and late 19th Century. The maker's marks are completely unintelligible, which is not uncommon in silver from the 19th Century where the marks are tiny. I can narrow the value range a bit, to $200-300 (it would have been more if this had been Russian).
