There is a hallmark inside consisting of three parts. The one on the left indicates that it was tested in the Assay office at Alexandria in Egypt and found to have a silver purity of 80%, typical of most continental silver. The mark in the middle is a lotus flower, the egyptian equivalent of the english lion passant silver guarantee mark. The mark to the right is a date letter and I think this would date the piece to around the year 2000.
