Re: Assistance with Sterling Basket Maker's Mark

Thank you Cheryl. I wasn't sure if it was American and appreciate the input. I bought it in England from a dealer who specializes in antique silver - not sure if that will make a difference at all in solving the mystery.

Re: Assistance with Sterling Spoon Mark - San Fran spoon

Thank you for the replies. This spoon did come in a collection with the F&F spoon. It is hard to see an F in the mark. Definitely appears to be a rounded letter like a B vs a mis-stamped F. But even with a jewelry loop it is hard not to go cross-eyed looking at silver marks. Appreciate the sugge...
