Spoon identification - Gundelach 12

Postby mjacob4130 » Mon Apr 10, 2017 1:21 pm

Hello. I came across a spoon I can not identify. I tired google, eBay and found nothing. I dont know if it is american or european. Any help is appreciated. My 97 year old grandmother passed away, and I found it cleaning out stuff.

It says gundelach 12 on the back. The front shows a date of 1833 on it.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Good day,

Here is what I came up with on your serving spoon. A ladle online with a similar finale was described as bearing a 12 Loth number and an attribution to Johann Friedrich Gundelach 1820 Braunschweig, Germany. Marks not shown. The loth number 12 gives you a silver content 750 parts silver. It is silver, not silver plate. Very common in many parts of Germany and other locations to the end of the 19th century.

Let's see if our more experienced members can fill in the blanks.

Hello mjacob4130,

most probably it is Johann Friedrich Gundelach. He worked in the first half of the 19th century in the city Braunschweig (Brunswick). His mark was "GUNDELACH" in a rectangle.

regards,
Ringo
