Is this a legitimate Georg Jensen mark?

I just got this fork, but I've never seen this exact mark before and cannot find it anywhere online: http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1688/11946691/21233928/412056335.jpg http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1688/11946691/21233928/412056334.jpg Is this new? Had anyone seen this mark?

Re: Matching Cream & Sugar - different marks?

I agree that's probably a replacement. Very well matched indeed!

Re: Surgical instrument maker.

That's a very interesting instrument! Are these instruments in sterling from the Victorian period rare?
This would be a new subject for me, but I find it fascinating!

Re: Art Deco footed dish L in shield mark?

Yeah, I initially thought Durgin, but it doesn't exactly match the entry in my copy of Rainwater...
Not 100% sure.

Gorham's "Old English" pattern

This pattern is somewhat new to me. From my research, I'm finding that it's a coin silver pattern, c. 1865 and is usually found unmarked. I recently got this piece and was wondering if anybody has an example to share? Or any interesting information about the pattern? http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VO...
