The parts are marked with R - C under a globe or balloon. This master mark can probably be traced back to René Coutin, a French silversmith who seems to have been active only in the years 1878-1880.
After about 140 years, the cutlery is still in good condition for its age, without damage and with only superficial scratches from use and oxidation.
