you can search this site , is very helpful
Search by country and number , many times in old european silver pieces the number represent the city or town where the piece came from
Also check in Taxco mexican silver , some of the old artisans identified themselves by number, that was before the .925 silver marking was instituted globally for identification of silver

Sterling silver is marked 925 or with hallmarks that vary with the country of origin..
If you take pictures of all the marks, perhaps someone will be able to help you on the Jewelry Discussion board ( link to the left)

If it is not marked 925 it is probably silver plated and should not be marked sterling. In fact, if it is stamped 925 there would be no need for it to also be stamped sterling.

Could be a pattern number. The most common sterling silver marks are sterling or .925 or hallmarks like a lion passant. This is probably one of the best online sites to identify silver hallmarks www(dot)925-1000(dot)com
