We now know that this hallmark sanctioned a tax paid between 1745 and 1749 on bronzes and brass. The 1745 edict required that “old and new works (...) which are and will be made, be visited and marked”. The same text lists all the works “of pure copper, of cast iron, molded, beaten, planed, engraved, gilded, silvered and colored, without any exception” which were to receive the mark.
