Fiddle Dessert Spoon

I have had this fiddle dessert spoon for years, but it has defied all attempts at identification. It is in a standard English style fiddle pattern and of a good gauge.

Thanks Pat. You have solved a long standing mystery. I suspected that it might be Canadian, as that is where there is a gap in my reference library.

Happy New Year

Mustard spoon

I cannot find the marks on this spoon in any of my references. It is an English style fiddle mustard spoon of a good gauge silver and gilded in the bowl. The pseudo marks suggest that it is colonial, but my searches have not turned up any answers. The maker’s mark is MSB in a cut cornered rectangle....

Tongs

You are most welcome. I should have added that the pattern was called "Henley"

Walker & Hall

I know this is a long time after your original question, but as I used to work for Walker & Hall I can add a little more information. The firm of Walker & Hall was established in 1845 and your heated trivet bears a date mark for 1908.

Walker & Hall

I know this is a long time after your original question, but as I used to work for Walker & Hall I can add a little more information. The “W” is a date letter, as suggested. Depending on the style of the letter is could either be 1915 ( a “wavy” W) or 1949 (a straight serifless W). The number 81...
