Knoll & Pregizer Early Hallmark Pre-WWII
This is another example of an early KP marked 1920s-1930s. The STERLING GERMANY denotes this was made for export to the US Or Canada. STERLING would have to be minimum 925 silver, and Germany was needed to be stamped to show country of origin. This all had to do with taxes and tariffs and requirements for each country of export. When you see only the numerical silver fineness mark and KP it was most likely made for sale in Europe. However, some pieces have a numerical silver fineness as well as STERLING GERMANY written and those could be shipped anywhere.
