Maroccan Hamsa - ″Hand of Fatima″ - silver pendant - h.cx - Hallmarks Forum
This berber silver hamsa has two crescent moon and five point star hallmarks, which leads me to believe they are from Amazour, Marocco, pre 1925, though they lack the circle around them. But there′s a third hallmark, some kind of crest with bowery leafs around it, whats inside the crest I′m unable to identify. Please help me identify the history of this piece. I am fixing them up for a customer who knows nothing about them and would love to give them back with full history.

UPDATE: First of all, I had a serious language blunder in my original question. The unidentified crest is of course surrounded by BAY LEAFS, like the crown of Ceasar. Inside the shield shaped crest it appears to be the image of a ship with one mast, a water line below and the skyline of a castle above it.

Above this crest is a crescent moon and five point star, with no circle around it. This appears to be a seperate hallmark, but it is so neatly placed that it could be a part of the same mark.

On one finger there is a more worn and blurry mark, but it also appears to be a crescent moon with five point star, with possible remains of a circle around it.

Any help to track the history behind this piece will be highly appreciated.
