I have been asked by a friend to research some markings on an old architectural fragment.

It is believed to be of plaster and is clearly marked MADE IN ITALY.

Although there is only one marking on this fragment, I have included pictures of marks from other pieces.

Unfortunately I have not found the proper resource for the maker’s mark but am hoping someone on this board may be able to identify either the maker or perhaps the age.

It is believed to be from the end of the nineteenth century or beginning of the 20th century.

As usual, I appreciate any help.
