I inherited this silver Menorah from my grandfather, can anyone tell me more about it?

I inherited this silver Menorah from my grandfather, can anyone tell me more about it?

It’s stamped “833 Made in Portugal,” indicating its silver content, there’s an additional Hallmark with the bird/grade inside the octagon which Google tells me indicates it was a large piece made between 1938-1984, but this is all I really know about it.

There’s a 3rd, smaller stamp or Hallmark that I’m having trouble deciphering, which appears to be a maker’s mark of three downward-pointing arrows inside a hexagon. This is the part I can’t find any info about, does anyone know anything about this maker’s mark? Does anyone know when this might’ve been made?

I don’t know what “I Themans” means, and the base is inscribed “congratulations from Moses Friedman,” who I also don’t know.

I don’t know much about my family history, only that my (presumably Jewish) ancestors came to the US sometime around WW2 to escape the nazis.
