I have 7 pieces of 925 silver marked 1507FI, and 925 in a separate oval. They are a lobster, crab, shrimp, and seashells. Does anyone have any idea what they might be?

Hi Luke,

Without seeing them it is difficult to tell but I would suggest they are purely ornamental. Silver sculptures such as yours were popular in Italy in the 20th C and the description of your marks, confirms they are Italian. Mario Buccellati is famous for them but many others also sculpted sea creatures.

So 925 silver, made in Florence(FI) however the registration number of 1507 does not correspond with any I know of for Florence. Depending on when they were made, there can be another character called a Fascio symbol next to the numbers which may be throwing you off on your interpretation.
Can you take a photo of the mark through a loupe or magnifying glass on a camera set to macro(usually a picture of a flower) Its important to not use flash so you may need to do this outside.

If I can establish the correct number, then the makers details should be available.

Cheers,
Steve
