What does O.I.M. mean?

I have 3 small 3 1/2 inch gold rimmed dishes. The backs say O.I.M.and it looks like that part was hand painted. The stamped part says Turin, a cross mark under that, then underneath the cross it says the word Barvaria.
For some reason, my Adobe Photoshop nor my Kodak Easyshare will not let me cut and paste a pic or two to let you see them.
Let me know if you need pics.
Thanks in advance!

Don't cut and paste from photoshop...cut and paste the link in photoshop ...or the link to the kodak Easyshares.
OIM may be the initials of the person who applied the gold.

It could also refer to "something" in the state of Bavaria where this was made.
