Please help !

I have a silver tray with 4 corner dishes and a round lidded center bowl, to my knowledge handpainted with typical flowers and garlands art nouveau paintings in blue,
made by Villeroy & Boch.
The lid of the center bowl has holes and holds 24 silver picks. It was bought from Studio Gioielleria Quattrocolo, Roma. All Silver ist hallmarked as follows:
2OAL in a lozenge, R&C in a lozenge, 800 in an oval.
Can anyone help please?
Thank you.

Hi Hartmut,

Always difficult to be accurate without a photo but post 1935 Italian silver is well documented so this time I′m 100%confident with providing the following info:

The 20AL in the lozenge tells me that the maker is:

RICCI & C., Fabbrica Argenterie Posaterie, Corso Acqui 41/A, Alessandria. The R&C is also their trademark confirming this.

Is there anything that basically looks like a vertical bar between the 20 and the AL inside the lozenge? If not, it dates the silver to between 1934 and 1944. If the bar is there(it is called the ″fasces″ and is more complicated than just a bar, but this is a close enough description) then the date range is 1944 to 1968.

The 800 is the grade of silver 800/1000.

You can find out more information about the company Ricci & C here:

Cheers,
Steve
