Also, the handle and the spout are stamped with small silver purity hallmarks.

The neck of the ewer is also stamped with two other silver hallmarks possibly Ottoman Tughra and the other smaller mark, however those hallmarks are deeply scored by some sharp tool, as though someone did this deliberately to remove the old regime Ottoman silver hallmarks, so they are not clear and very poorly visible.
