Re: St. Christopher Gold Medallion with unknown hallmark

To be frank this is relatively modern. Many of these were produced in Italy in the 1960-70s and maybe later. St Christopher,( no longer accepted as a Saint, ). Best wishes, Mike.

Re: Silver plated spikes.

Their age and construction would suggest corn on the cob holders to me!

Down the left the letters are from the top 'R' 'A' and 'O' the letter on the right is not visible but could be DERIBL or any letter with an upright column on its left.

Re: Richard Richardson teaspoons

I sold one with a similar mark at auction some years ago... the mark.. which had a similar second r was attributed to Richard Redrick ... Who if I remember correctly was a London Silversmith. There was some argument over the shape of the stamp though and the attribution was a bit... let's say loose..

Suggest they are a fruit knife and fork... often these were made as folding items and occasionally can be found on a well known online auction site. Best wishes, Mike.

Not possible for it to be 1850 (wrong mark anyway) because no Victorias head present.. defo 20th century but the date letter is a strange one to me. Best wishes, Mike.

You appear to have taken a photo of the back of the spoon.... there also appears to be a further mark on the back of the reamer in the second pic.... so could you please let us know what the other mark is. Thanks and best wishes, Mike.
