Re: Berlin Spoon

The maker's mark could read; *N10 for; Firma Gebr. Niekerk , registered in Schoonhoven till 1970
See: http://www.verwoerdceramics.com/silver
The Minerva head/assay office mark should have the regional assay office letter M for Schoonhoven.

Believe it to be a silver sugar shovel (suikerschepje). Year letter B for 1836. The maker's mark could be GK under a chess pawn for: G. Koppelaars, registered in 's-Hertogenbosch 1814-1841. The Minderva head or assay office mark should have the regional assay office letter K in its helmet for 's-Her...

Re: Is this Dutch?

Most likely provenance, wills & testaments, 17th century inventory letter/book after death describing the spoon. Indeed updates are important and patience is a virtue.

So far no luck with this particular mark: H or JH conjoined. It is not Frisian. I have ordered the book for you, see my pm.

Re: Silver spoons - the twelve apostles in a casette - the Netherlands

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/640x480q90/922/ETyBsb.jpg The best match. Yes, I agree it is the maker's mark of Douwe de Jong Wz and the sword mark used 1906-1953.

Re: Silver spoons - the twelve apostles in a casette - the Netherlands

Hi Sophie,

Difficult no clear match.
It looks like the maker's mark is a broken punch mark and perhaps not D.J. but OA and if so it could be for J. van Os van den Abeelen, registered in Schoonhoven 1885-1934. His mark is also seen in combination with pseudo/fantasy marks.
