ID Sterling Basket marked MJ RR

Could anyone chime in on the hallmark for this sterling bonbon basket? I searched high and low and was not able to find anything myself. Maybe RR stands for a railway?

Re: TG Makers Mark + What type of spoon is this?

Thank you, Steve, Peter, and Traintime for your input. The measurements are as follows - 5" overall. The bowl is 2" in length and 1 3/4" in width. The handle is 3". I think maybe it is more of a cream ladle as Peter suggested or a dessert spoon. Here is another side profile pictu...

TG Makers Mark + What type of spoon is this?

Could anyone please eyeball this repoussé spoon and help me identify the possible TG maker? Also, I often second guess British date marks. I think it most resembles 1791/1792.

Gorham Sterling Baby Cup - Date?

Could anyone please help me date this Gorham Sterling baby cup? I have researched online but come away uncertain. Is it from 1970ish? The Hallmark is very light.
